Economic data dominates next week's trading calendar, with updates on gross domestic product (GDP), manufacturing, and housing scattered across the schedule. The main focus, however, will be the release of the nonfarm payrolls report for August on Friday. The earnings slate isn't completely dry, with names like Best Buy Co Inc (NYSE:BBY), Box Inc (NYSE:BOX), and Palo Alto Networks Inc (NYSE:PANW) set to report.

Below is a brief list of some key market events scheduled for the upcoming week. All earnings dates listed below are tentative and subject to change. Please check with each company's respective website for official reporting dates.

On Monday, Aug. 28, Wall Street will see the Dallas Fed's manufacturing index, and data on international trade in goods. The earnings calendar is rather bare. 

On Tuesday, Aug. 29, the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller home price index and consumer confidence will be released. BBY's report will highlight the earnings calendar. H & R Block (HRB) and Hain Celestial (HAIN) will also report. 

For Wednesday, Aug. 30, Automatic Data Processing will release its employment report, and the regularly scheduled update on domestic crude inventories will be unveiled, too. But the main focus will be the preliminary reading for second-quarter GDP. For earnings, Analog Devices (ADI), Bob Evans (BOBE), Box (BOX), (CTRP), Five Below (FIVE), Shoe Carnival (SCVL), and Workday (WDAY) will step into the spotlight. 

Weekly jobless claims come out on Thursday, Aug. 31. Also on the economic schedule is the Chicago purchasing managers index (PMI), the National Association of Realtors pending home sales index, and data on household income. Ambarella (AMBA), Campbell Soup (CPB), Ciena (CIEN), Dollar General (DG), lululemon athletica (LULU), Nutanix (NTXN), and Palo Alto Networks (PANW) make up the earnings slate. 

There's plenty of data to digest on Friday, Sept. 1, too. On top of the unveil of the nonfarm payrolls report for August, auto sales will be released throughout the day, and the PMI manufacturing index, the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) manufacturing index, construction spending, and the University of Michigan's consumer sentiment survey will all come out. The earnings calendar is empty.
