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.

Ashlad, the youngest brother, is ridiculed and thought of as foolish because he asks so many questions. But Ashlad’s curiosity and kindness seem to bring him remarkable luck wherever he goes. Ultimately, Ashlad proves himself not so foolish after all, and brings home the unlikeliest of treasures, more precious than gold.

Building Bionics: How technologies are going to enhance the human body and end physical disability @ Marriott Library, Gould Auditorium
Mar 29 @ 12:00 pm
Building Bionics: How technologies are going to enhance the human body and end physical disability @ Marriott Library, Gould Auditorium |  |  |

In this talk, Dr. Tommaso Lenzi, Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, a Core Faculty in the Robotics Center at University of Utah, and the Director of the Ergonomics and Safety Program at the Rocky Mountain Center for Occupational and Environmental Health, will present ongoing work at his HGN Lab for Bionic Engineering to advance the science of bionics. He will describe novel electromechanical designs that will empower next-generation bionic limbs to match the strength and speed of biological legs. He will demonstrate intelligent control systems that synchronize the movements of the bionic leg with the human nervous system, enabling individuals with amputation to perform activities that are impossible with conventional prostheses. Finally, Dr. Lenzi will discuss critical challenges and areas of future research that must advance for bionics to become a part of our lives.

Award Winning Film “All That Breathes” Free Screening and Post Discussion Presented by Utah Film Center @ The City Library
Apr 5 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Award Winning Film "All That Breathes" Free Screening and Post Discussion Presented by Utah Film Center @ The City Library |  |  |

Join the Utah Film Center on Wednesday, April 5 at 7 pm at The City Library in downtown Salt Lake for a free film screening of the award-winning documentary, All That Breathes.

Presented as part of the Utah Film Center’s Through the Lens Spring Series and in partnership with KUER’s Radiowest, All That Breathes documents the story of two brothers who fall in love with the black kite bird in one of the world’s most populated cities, New Dehli.

This mesmerizing story follows the “kite brothers” as they care for thousands of creatures sick from smog-choked skies in their makeshift bird hospital inside the tiny basement of their home. As environmental toxicity and civil unrest escalate, the relationship between this Muslim family and the neglected kite forms a poetic chronicle of the city’s collapsing ecology and rising social tensions.

We invite you to stay after the screening as KUER’s Radiowest host, Doug Fabrizio, hosts an engaging conversation with film director, Shaunak Sen about the restorative efforts despite dealing with some of the world’s poorest air quality.
