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.

University of Utah Children’s Dance Theatre presents “Salt”
The Children’s Dance Theatre invites you to come experience a magical adventure for all ages, based on a whimsical folk tale. Three brothers set out to seek their fortunes in a world full of fierce trolls and hungry giants. 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.
