End of Summer GARDEN PARTY [TICKETS HERE]



IT'S BACK, we promised it would be! We are really really excited to announce the second instalment of our Garden Party concept at Koerner's. Everyone is getting back into town, Res will have just moved in the day before and we need a place to celebrate together!! And we ALSO need an excuse to rock them bow-ties, suspenders and sundress! We will be brining back all the fairy lights, white triangles banners, flower-pinecone centrepieces, mason jar's full of beer & special ;) pink lemonade, and rigging up enough white balloons to pick up a small baby. By overwhelming demand we are so excited to welcome back our friends LUKE WALLACE BAND. As the picnic tables get pushed out of the way Luke and that dirty banjo will kick off the open air dance floor followed by classic hits and sing a longs from our DJs.


And of course no Calendar event is complete without a new profile pic to show your mum, dad and friends back home just how awesome UBC really is. Formal themed props and photo booth by the talented William Selviz.

We Want You! Get Involved



The Calendar is a student run organization dedicated to making UBC more fun and building a strong student community. We provide a hub for all things awesome, spread the word about student events, and host a few campus wide ragers of our own.

We are in the process of expanding The Calendar to the next level and we are on the hunt for some more rad people to help us out. We are looking for fun, capable people from a variety of backgrounds and skill sets to add to our team. We have both casual and executive team position openings.

The Calendar provides a realm for creative experimentation and a fantastic stage to develop skills and spearhead innovative ideas. Take advantage of the many perks that come with running the social hub of campus and meet new likeminded people from all corners of UBC at our internal socials.

Rep Team

A team of fun loving and outgoing socialites that somehow manage to know everyone in their respective corners of UBC. You love meeting new people and are always nice to everyone. You go out a fair bit but manage to balance your work and social time. As a Community Rep you both represent and connect The Calendar to your friends and peers at UBC. The Rep team keeps UBC awesome, spreads the word about the calendar and other awesome stuff happening on campus, as well as postering and selling tickets for calendar events. The Rep team meets every second week to brainstorm ideas, promote events, execute fun projects, and hang out! The rep team also serves as a pool of awesome people for next years more senior positions.

Event Manager

An experienced event planner ready to take your skills to the next level. You have a passion for making people happy that has fueled your desire to host. Be the air traffic controllers of The Calendar’s flagship events. Organize logistics, motivate our team, and creatively solve problems under pressure because above all else you know ‘the show must go on’ all with a smile on your face.

Internal Social Coordinator

A fun loving person who loves organizing BBQ and potlucks for your friends and finding excuses to go on outings as a team. You find a way to get to know everyone, and you might just have a bit of border collie in you because you love keeping the pack together. Develop your event skills or give back to the team by organizing awesome social events for The Calendar team to get loose and enjoy each others company.

Twitter Manager / Socialite

Based on your existing account(s) it’s clear that you are a twitter person. You are a social butterfly, inherently quirky and you love keeping the twitter verse updated throughout the day. Let UBC know about upcoming events, respond to fan mentions and event retweets, and keep other partiers in the loop about whats good when you go out.

Creative Team

Are you awesome at something? The Calendar’s creative team is a handful of talented people that lend their skills to make The Calendar more awesome. From shooting photos at UBC parties, filming short videos, painting signs and canvases, writing fun information pieces, to designing info-graphics and posters. We are looking for the following!
• Photography
• Videography
• Graphic Design
• Visual Art
• Creative Writing?
• Other?


Applications Closed.

We are excited to announce our big event of the summer Digital Zoo created to bring the festival spirit home to Vancouver. The concept of Digital Zoo was born on the drive home from every music festival this summer. "Why can't everyday be like this". The event is inspired by festival culture, the feeling of inhibition and connectedness we feel at the hight of a festival. We want to create a space to bring this festival love home with us.

The Calendar Summer Sessions #2


Thank you so much Fortune Sound Club & Cherchez La Femme for inviting us back to do this again and support some legitimately talented local artists! from our very own school!

UBC Get Together & Patio Party | July 12


Goal: get as many UBC homies together in one place as possible. Bring your roommates, bring your new work friends, drink some beer and then we can all head out together for a rowdy night a s fat team.

Event Announcement: Calendar Sessions: Live Series


So stoked to finally be doing this! The goal for The Calendar Summer Sessions is to showcase high quality local artists from UBC and Vancouver on the mains stage at Fortune Sound Club. This is something we have wanted to to try out for along time and we are so stoked to finally be doing it. We want to give UBC and other local artists a space to showcase their talents and projects to friends and the public in a rowdy high energy environment.


After seeing E BUUDA & DEAD M1C (Evan Elman & Mikey Jay Blige) perform at the grad affair in April we couldn't think of a better fit to headline the first go at this experiment. Their energy, legitimate talent as artists, and stage presence highlight exactly what we want this night to be about.


This is a further extension of our "Friday Get Together" project facilitated by the "In Vancouver For The Summer" event. Find out who is here, bring your friends, drink some beer and make some more. So come out a little early this Friday and help us try something a bit different. Support local artists, remember how much you miss live music, and then stick around for the rowdiness that is Happy Ending Fridays at Fortune Sound Club.



UBC Get Together | May 17th


Stoked on the second instalment of our weekly UBC Get Together. Another awesome turnout. Stay tuned to our In Vancouver For The Summer page for details and giveaways for the next one.

In Vancouver For the Summer | UBC Facebook Event


Are you staying in Van for the summer? We are making a page to keep track of your friends and meet new ones. Instead of studying we decided to make a summer-long event so UBC people can keep track of other UBC people who are also kicking in it van this summer! Use this event to find out who is here, make beach plans, make beach party plans, make plans for going out, make volleyball tournaments, etc.


We are also thinking it would be rad to make a bunch of UBC meet-up events, so people can head out with a couple friends who are here, and then meet and party with other UBC homies kickin it in Van for the summer. We are also gonna work on getting some club hookups so we can use our numbers to not pay 15 dollar cover all summer lol.

UBC Get Together | May 10th


First UBC Get together of the summer. We worked out a deal with Joe's Apartment to get everyone discounts all summer. What up 8 dollar cover!

Besides everyone knows strobe lights look fucking amazing in a down poor.
