Welcome to the KNKX Community online events calendar. The KNKX Community Live Music, Cultural Arts, and Civic pages are updated regularly but please check websites for current information. Please e-mail community@knkx.org with your information which should consist of just the facts (event title, date and time, a short description and--very important--a URL or other link where listeners can get more details). And be sure to ask questions if you have them.

KNKX Sponsored Events and Community Partnerships

KNKX Event: The KNKX Holiday Jam concert will be presented in front of a live audience at Town Hall Seattle on December 18 at 7 p.m., hosted by Abe Beeson. REGISTER HERE. Our special guests are Northwest favorites Pearl Django and vocalist Gail Pettis performing music of the season. A student combo from Seattle JazzED (with mentors Nate Omdal and Marina Albero) will open the program. The KNKX Holiday Jam has been a station tradition for years, and we’re thrilled to return to a Seattle venue where we can safely celebrate with the community. Join us in person at Town Hall or watch the live stream.

KNKX is proud to welcome NPR's Wait, Wait...Don't Tell Me! host Peter Sagal to the Pantages Theater on March 12, 2022 presented by Tacoma Arts Live. Peter will talk about his experiences hosting Wait, Wait..., offering both colorful commentary on current events and a behind-the-scenes peek at the funniest show on radio.

KNKX sponsors Harlequin Productions' presentation of A Christmas Carol, November 26-December 31.
