Our History

Established in 2012, QueensEvents.ca is a grassroots event promotion initiative that assembles and distributes information about local events at Queen’s and downtown Kingston.

Through our website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages, visitors can find out about upcoming arts, academic and social events in the community surrounding Queen’s University.

Our Mission

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

Who runs it?

QueensEvents.ca is a collaboration between 350+ event organizers and a core team led by Sarah Witiuk. We work together to create an accessible all-in-one events calendar. Our core team takes care of marketing, website development, partnerships, and training. If you are an event organizer, it’s free to become a contributor.

Our Vision

To connect all 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.
