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.

Volunteer Orientation: Bird Docent @ HawkWatch International |  |  |

Become a Bird Docent Volunteer and experience the wonder of raptors, first hand, while helping HWI expand its education mission!

Bird Docent volunteers assist in providing community outreach programs with HawkWatch International’s education birds. Volunteers are taught how to handle our non-releasable education birds, learn about birds of prey and our various programs, and then take the birds out to community programs to teach about raptor ecology and conservation. We do request a time commitment of volunteers and ask that they assist with some general bird care duties.

If you would like to become a Bird Docent volunteer for HawkWatch International, please attend this orientation where you will meet the birds and Nikki Wayment, HawkWatch International’s Executive Director.

Collectors Book Salon: Mark Edlund @ Weller Book Works
Jul 26 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Collectors Book Salon: Mark Edlund @ Weller Book Works |  |  |

Book-lovers and collectors meet at Weller Book Works Collectors’ Book Salons on the last Friday of each month, January through October. Serious and frivolous bibliophiles meet in our Rare Book Department for friendship conversation, edification and bibliolust. We start at 6:30 pm and at 7:15, an invited bibliophile leads the Collectors’ Chat about a topic of her or his particular knowledge and passion. And at each salon there is also a special deal on rare books.

The Collector’s Chat in our July Collectors’ Book Salon will feature Mark J. Edlund, Doctor of Psychiatry. In 2015 Mark spoke to our guests about uncommon bibliographies regarding the Mormon Church and the West, and showed us some of his collection of association copies of books pertaining to Mormon and Western Americana. We are happy that he has agreed to return for another chat, Bedrock Western Americana: The Arthur H Clark Company and the Lakeside Classics. Few publishers of Western history have reputations and catalogs as impressive as Clark and Lakeside. For over a century Arthur H. Clark has laid wide fields of first-hand source documents before the eyes of readers. Alternately, the Lakeside Press has reprinted important Americana in high quality diminutive “handy” editions. Both companies have high production values. When I encounter a book published by either, i know it will be worthy content in a good package. Join us and Mark Edlund on July 27th.
