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.

Nov 2 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
BLACK, BOLD & BRILLIANT: LAND BACK EDITION @ Salt Lake City Public Library Main Branch |  |  |

Land Back is a campaign that seeks to return political and economic control to Indigenous people in the United States and Canada over land that historically belonged to them prior to colonization. What does this movement hold for Utah’s Indigenous communities, and what similarities does Land Back have with the Reparations movement in Black communities which also aims to address historical inequality? Join the Black, Bold & Brilliant team as they celebrate Indigenous People’s Month with this thoughtful and restorative roundtable discussion.

Both her viral TED talk and her instant New York Times bestseller The Sum of Us reveal the devastating true cost of racism—not just for people of color, but for everyone. Deeply stirring, intelligent, and compassionate, McGhee’s talks offer us an actionable roadmap during one of the most critical—and most troubled—periods in history.

Through the Lens: Grey Gardens Film Screening & Post-Film Discussion @ The City Library
Dec 7 all-day
Through the Lens: Grey Gardens Film Screening & Post-Film Discussion @ The City Library |  |  |

Utah Film Center is excited to announce our upcoming screening of Grey Gardens on Wednesday, December 7th at 7 pm at the City Library downtown location. This illuminating documentary follows two women who lived together at the Grey Gardens estate for decades in increasing squalor and isolation and their recollection of their past experiences. Please join us for the film and stick around afterward for a post-film discussion about the film and its resonance today with a University of Utah professor and KUER’s RadioWest host Doug Fabrizio.

Presented as part of our Through the Lens series, which for 2022 features a collaboration with the University of Utah’s Department of Film and Media Arts to present an extended exploration of what many Film Lovers regard as the “Classic Films” in cinematic history. The post-film discussion will ask, “Why is this film a classic, and who is it a classic for?”

SYNOPSIS
Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale (“Big Edie”) and her daughter Edith Bouvier Beale (“Little Edie”) were the aunt and the first cousin, respectively, of former US First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Throughout the fall of 1971 and into 1972, their living conditions—their house was infested by fleas, inhabited by numerous cats and raccoons, deprived of running water, and filled with garbage and decay—were exposed as the result of an article in the National Enquirer and a cover story in New York Magazine after a series of inspections (which the Beales called “raids”) by the Suffolk County Health Department. With the Beale women facing eviction and the razing of their house, in the summer of 1972 Jacqueline Onassis and her sister Lee Radziwill provided the necessary funds to stabilize and repair the dilapidated house so that it would meet village codes.
