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.

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.

Enjoy lofi guitar vibes from a local musician on our patio while sipping on cider.
From the artist:
“I have been playing music all my life, performing professionally in various groups in the salt lake area and beyond for a little over a decade (currently fronting blues-rock group Poet Bones). Graveljaw Keaton is my newest project, created as a home for my lofi-inspired, western-influenced guitar instrumental music. I’ve always called Utah home, and am excited to share this new project with the same music scene that’s been so supportive all these years!”
