Community Calendar

Our Community Calendar is a volunteer-run resource offered 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.

The Community Calendar also has a physical home. Following the criteria listed below, mail or bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10, Salt Lake City, UT 84111. 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:

Black, Bold & Brilliant Event: Little Satchmo Film Screening + Filmmaker Q&A @ Salt Lake City Downtown Public Library
Feb 1 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Black, Bold & Brilliant Event: Little Satchmo Film Screening + Filmmaker Q&A @ Salt Lake City Downtown Public Library |  |  |

Free in-person film screening and Q&A led by the Black, Bold and Brilliant team featuring film director John Alexander and film subject Sharon Preston Folta via Zoom.

Little Satchmo is an intimate exploration of the iconic Louis Armstrong’s life and legacy through his relationship with the daughter that the public never knew existed. Based on a revealing memoir written by Armstrong’s silent daughter, the film seeks to correct a historical narrative relying on caricature for too long.

Louis Daniel Armstrong, nicknamed “Satchmo”, had an illustrious career that spanned five decades. Due to his unique music styling, charisma, and gritty vocals, he is credited with changing the focus of jazz music from “collective improvisation” to solo performance. With an eye for the ladies, Armstrong had several failed marriages but remained with his fourth wife Lucille Wilson until his death in 1971. During his marriage to Wilson, Armstrong had a long time affair with Lucille Preston. Together they had a daughter, Sharon, who Louis lovingly called “Little Satchmo”. To protect them and his career, Lucille and Sharon lived in the shadows of his limelight.

“Hidden Letters” free film screening and discussion presented by Utah Film Center @ Salt Lake City Downtown Public Library
Feb 8 all-day
“Hidden Letters” free film screening and discussion presented by Utah Film Center @ Salt Lake City Downtown Public Library |  |  |

Utah Film Center is excited to announce our upcoming free film screening of Hidden Letters Wednesday, February 8 at 7 pm at the Salt Lake Downtown Public Library.

Presented as part of the Utah Film Center’s Through the Lens Series and in partnership with KUER’s Radiowest, Hidden Letters is a story of two Chinese women trying to balance their lives as independent women in modern China while confronting the traditional identity that defines but also oppresses them.

For thousands of years women who were often forced into oppressive marriages and forbidden to read or write, shared a secret language among themselves called Nushu. Written with delicate strokes made from sharpened bamboo sticks dipped in ink, Nushu bonded generations of Chinese women in a clandestine support system of sisterhood and survival.

Join us afterward as KUER’s Radiowest host, Doug Fabrizio, hosts a lively discussion with film director, Violet Du Feng via zoom cinematically exploring China’s gender issues as portrayed by this sensitive and stirring documentary.

Thank you for our tremendously successful 45th year! With such strong support from our local communities and sponsors, we are proud to announce the 46th Utah Asian Festival in 2023.

Our event benefits all Utahns, offering a glimpse at how traditional practices have been preserved and upheld in our state.

Our celebration is an opportunity for all to reunite with old friends; build new friendships; meet our various communities, leaders, and elders; and seek new opportunities to be involved and support our diverse Utah Asian communities.

This year’s festival will honor our communities through traditional and modern performances, children’s activities, and spotlights on cultural, nonprofit, and commercial organizations. As always, food trucks and food booths featuring local businesses will be on site serving delicious food and refreshments. We’ve listened to your feedback and are actively working to bring you the best event possible!

Join us for the 46th annual Utah Asian Festival on Saturday, June 3rd from 11:00 am until 7:00 pm at the Grand Building of the Utah State Fairpark (155 N 1000 W Salt Lake City, UT 84116).
