Our Community Calendar is a resource we offer to all qualified nonprofits. Community Calendar events are highlighted live, on-air throughout the day on KCPW. Featured events are chosen at random. You will also find all current Community Calendar events listed here at kcpw.org.
PLEASE NOTE: Our Community Calendar now also has a physical home. Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.
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 a religious organization or individual.
If your event meets these criteria, click “Post Your Event” below. Include your contact information in case we have any questions. Otherwise, your event may not get published.
KCPW would like to encourage you to make the most of your post by adding a featured image and links to your organization. Utilize the provided field boxes (i.e. location, ticket information) to display information as accurately and quickly as possible. Please do not submit duplicate postings for the same event.
Please submit requests at least 10-14 days before your event – event listings read on-air are chosen at random, at least two weeks prior to the 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.
On Monday, December 10, at 6:30 PM, Weller’s is proud to host author Julie MacNeil and the book launch of THE 50 YEAR SECRET!
The Journey of Julie MacNeil:
Julie MacNeil was adopted at birth and for many years she had been curious about her family medical history. A few years ago (thanks to a chance DNA test) she learned she has a rare genetic liver-lung disease called Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency. This means her liver doesn’t produce a protein enzyme that her body needed to protect her lungs, and can lead to emphysema or COPD in someone like her, who has never smoked. If left untreated, it can lead to needing a bilateral lung transplant.
Due to the highly genetic nature of this rare condition and the frightening side effects if undiagnosed, the doctors encouraged her to find my biological parents.
THE 50 YEAR SECRET is the story of her incredible journey to find her biological parents.
A reading will begin at 6:30, with a signing to follow.
Join us Wednesday, December 12, at 6:30 PM, as we welcome Eileen Hallet Stone to the store for a presentation and signing of Auerbach’s: The Store that Performs What It Promises!
After an arduous journey to Utah’s Mormon frontier, three Jewish immigrant brothers built a flagship institution that lasted more than a century in downtown Salt Lake City. The F. Auerbach & Bros. story is one of personal challenges, Prussian folktales, perilous sea voyages, Wild West tenacity and those elegant and sophisticated fashions found on the second floor. Built along railroad tracks and dressing boomtown “Ladies of Aristocracy” in finery, Auerbach’s tent stores evolved into one of the finest retailers in state history, providing something for everyone under one roof. Award-winning author and former Salt Lake Tribune columnist Eileen Hallet Stone brings to life the magical moments of the shopping dynasty that lasted until 1979.
Award-winning author and former Salt Lake Tribune columnist Eileen Hallet Stone’s projects include Historic Tales of Utah, Hidden History of Utah, A Homeland in the West: Utah Jews Remember and Missing Stories: An Oral History of Ethnic and Minority Groups in Utah, co-authored with Leslie Kelen. Her commentary is featured in the 2015 documentary film Carvalho’s Journey.
The presentation will begin at 6:30, with a signing to follow.
