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:

  • 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.

We 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. 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.

NOTE:  approved events are typically posted to the Community Calendar within seven days of your submission.

Please submit requests at least 14 days before your event – listings read on-air are chosen at random, the week of the event.

Craft Lake City STEM Labs Workshop: ValenSlime @ Utah STEM Action Center Innovation Hub
Feb 11 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Craft Lake City STEM Labs Workshop: ValenSlime @ Utah STEM Action Center Innovation Hub |  |  |

At STEM labs, we use scientific principles in creative new ways, and our special guest scientist Beth Drees will explain not just HOW to make slime, but WHY the whole thing works! Using this new chemical knowledge, kids are encouraged to create test batches of slime to explore their favorite textures by experimenting with different combinations of ingredients until they find the perfect recipe. Once their slime is just right, we’ll use ratios to create a mega-batch, add their favorite custom mix-ins, and package individual portions to hand out as special DIY valentine gifts for the whole class. Even grown ups will have fun engineering fascinating new goops with their kids, and at the end, everyone will walk away feeling like a chemical engineer.

This workshop will be held at the STEM Action Center’s Innovation Hub in Millcreek, where you can have all the fun of slime and leave the mess behind!

Please note: a parent or guardian must be in attendance with their child/children. The $29 ticket allows entry for one child and one parent. An additional $10 for entry of another child with that ticket.
