KCPW’s Community Calendar is a volunteer-run resource offered to all qualified nonprofits and government entities. Community Calendar events are listed online and highlighted on-air throughout the week. Events featured on-air are chosen at random the week of the event.

The Community Calendar also has a physical home in our window for all Library Square foot traffic to see. Professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting events can be snail-mailed to KCPW at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10, Salt Lake City, UT 84111. 

To submit an event to the Community Calendar, the event must meet the following criteria:

– The event must take place in Utah.
– The organization promoting the event  must be a qualified 501(c)(3) charity or political subdivision.
– The event cannot promote an individual or a religious organization.

If your event meets these criteria, click “Post Your Event” below. Please do not submit duplicate postings for the same event. If you are posting a class or workshop that requires registration, list just the first instance in the date and time, and include the details for subsequent classes in the description.

Please submit requests at least 14 days before the event. Approved events are typically posted within seven days of submission.

Tomato Planting Tips & Tricks Workshop @ Wasatch Community Gardens
May 18 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Tomato Planting Tips & Tricks Workshop @ Wasatch Community Gardens |  |  |

Are you ready to plant your tomatoes, but you’ve got some questions like “How far apart should they be planted? What do I do with really leggy tomatoes? Can I pinch off any lower leaves? Should I use compost or fertilizer? What about companion plants for tomatoes?”

Come join us in our Teaching Gardens as we plant tomatoes together and answer all of your tomato-planting questions. We’ll compare deep planting and trench planting techniques as we discuss proper plant spacing according to plant variety, and we reveal a host of other tips for how to increase your tomato productivity and plant health.

Please come dressed for being outside and for working in the garden, and feel free to bring garden gloves if you have a favorite pair. Please come prepared with sunscreen, water bottle, and don’t forget your mask 🙂

This workshop has a limited number of spots available and is expected to sell out quickly. No walk-ins permitted the day of class, so please register online ahead of time.

If rain is expected we will cancel THE DAY BEFORE the event via EMAIL, so please check your email inbox (and SPAM folder) if the weather looks iffy!

Discounted rates available to current community gardeners with WCG or the WCG Network.

Pre-Registration is required.

NOTE: We offer a limited number of reduced-tuition scholarships for low-income individuals. If you would like to apply, please fill out and submit our scholarship application before continuing the on-line registration process.

The Utah Asian Festival is the premiere Asian culture event in the state of Utah and the longest running, continuous festival of its kind west of the Mississippi since 1977.

Utah Asian Festival showcases our 150+ years in the state of Utah highlighting our profound cultures and traditions, delectable Asian food, and exceptional performances.

Our event is a platform benefitting all Utahns, to offer a glimpse at how our Asian ethnic groups and community members have both preserved and transformed traditional practices in our state.

Our celebration is an opportunity for all to have a reunion with old friends, make new ones, meet our various communities, leaders, and elders, and seek new opportunities to be involved and support our diverse Utah Asian communities.
