Discover events at Queen's & downtown Kingston!

How it Works

Don’t know where to go to get Queen’s students to find out about your events? You’ve come to the right place!

QueensEvents.ca is the only campus-community events calendar that you can use to get the word out to thousands of people in the Queen’s community about your awesome events!

Events must be:

  • within walking distance of Queen’s campus (main or west).
  • within a student’s budget — under $100.
  • one-time-only — see our Recurring Events Policy below.
  • not against the law — no keggers/house parties.
  • If concerned that your event doesn’t fit the Event Criteria above, please email Sarah at queensevents@live.ca

Recurring Events Policy

  • We prioritize one-time-only events to avoid clutter.
  • Daily events are acceptable for a maximum of 7 days.
  • If you are posting about Hiring, instead of submitting the application period, submit the application deadline (one day).
  • If you have questions, please contact us at queensevents@live.ca

Examples of “events” include: Concerts, speaker series, film screenings, art receptions, sports games, open mic nights, workshops, dances, fundraisers, club nights, career fairs… and more!

Event: “a one-time occasion that has a fixed end date. Can include recurring events, less than 1 month.”

  • If you are hosting a multi-day festival or theatre performance, this likely counts as an Event.

Activity: “a recreational pursuit or pastime that does not have a specified end date.”

  • If you are hosting a tourism activity that anyone can go to at any time, this is an Activity and not an Event (e.g. skating, rock climbing, Haunted Walk, art gallery).
  • Note: If your Activity is hosting a special event/one-time occasion (e.g. figure skating performance, rock climbing competition, art gallery reception), this likely counts as an Event.

Unlike radio and TV, ads on QueensEvents.ca reach people who are already motivated to attend events. Email queensevents@live.ca with your event name & date to learn more about our Featured Event Boosts.
