About Us

"Wouldn't it be cool if all upcoming events at Queen's and downtown were listed in one place, easy to find?" That's the question that started it all...

After a year on exchange, Sarah Witiuk (ArtSci’13) had a difficult time re-integrating into campus life. She kept hearing about events after they happened, and started to feel excluded from campus life.

She started looking for a solution, one place where she could find all the events on-campus. Film screenings, guest speakers, an astronaut giving a public lecture on-campus, your favourite band playing at a venue a block away from my house, a cross-campus Capture the Flag game, round-table discussions with Canadian politicians, leadership conferences, open-call auditions, fashion shows… and lots more.

That’s what this website is all about. It’s about the big events and the small ones you wouldn’t normally hear about. It’s about making the most out of your short time at Queen’s, and popping the bubble to discover Kingston events, too.

Our Vision

Our vision is to connect Queen's University students, faculty, staff and alumni to the greater Kingston community through the promotion of academic, arts, and social events within walking distance of campus.

Our Mission

We aim to improve access to information about all upcoming events within walking distance of Queen’s University.

  • 31,762 unique people visited QueensEvents.ca between September 1, 2015 to April 30, 2016.
  • 6,000+ events added by event organizers to date.
  • 70% of all events are open to all ages, contrary to drinking culture rhetoric.
  • 200+ contributors help to maintain the calendar.
