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.

SLC White Party: Candy Rococo @ Dreamscapes |  |  |

Utah Arts Alliance invites you to the 23rd annual SLC WHITE PARTY! (21+ only event; valid ID required)

This year’s theme: Candy Rococo! We’re partying in pastels and all things boujee and baroque! Grab your cotton candy wigs, and sharpen those sweet tooths for an 18th Century sugary-sweet shindig you won’t want to miss.

WHAT IS A WHITE PARTY?
White Parties are themed parties at which the standard clothing is all or almost all white and were started in the 1970’s as large dance events closely associated with LGBTQIA+ culture.

The SLC WHITE PARTY is the longest running WHITE PARTY in SLC and inclusive to all who wish to experience a magical night of art, music, performance, dance and joy. The SLC WHITE PARTY is welcoming to all regardless of race, gender, sexuality, or ability.

ATTIRE: A WHITE PARTY is a themed costume party with a special dress code that asks all guests attending to wear white outfits. You can wear colorful accents to a white party in the form of accessories. But generally speaking, except for accessories and accents, your outfit is encouraged to be head-to-toe white!

The SLC White Party is a fundraiser for the Utah Arts Alliance, a Utah 501(c)3 organization.
