The What

UNBSU Campus Events is a new events brand created by the UNBSU with mission to redesign what it means to be a UNB student through the highest caliber events possible.

Uniting our strong, vibrant UNB community is at the core of everything we do–and we can’t wait to show you.

Kristian D’Amore
Director of Campus Events

The Who

Born and raised in Mississauga, ON, Kristian grew up surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the big city. At the age of 16, he was inspired to be part of starting an Italian food and music festival. Today, it now ranks year after year as one of the Top 100 Festivals and Events in Ontario. Kristian has worked at the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games and the 2017 North American Indigenous Games organizing the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, and nightly concerts. 

Since coming to UNB, Fredericton has given Kristian all the opportunities to be creative and follow his passion in creating extraordinary and memorable events. He has been part of committees that executed the 2017 & 2018 University Cup, 2018 UNBSU RED Awards, 2018 TEDxUNB, and the 2018 UNB Sports Business Conference. He is currently a member of the UNB Reds men's soccer team, holds dual-citizenship (Italian & Canadian), and is extremely excited about what the year holds with the UNB Student Union Campus Events portfolio! 

Welcome Back: Music Fest

Redefining what it means to “come back to school” UNBSU Campus Events took our refocused energy and delivered on the first of four major events for the year. Guaranteed you have never seen Freddy Beach lit up quite like this.

2018 kick-off concert recap

A student-led concert at UNB like NEVER BEFORE! Get ready to kick the school year off in style... the right way. 🎉
An electrifying mix of modern beats, our 2018 concert will go down in history as a true "call to the dancefloor!" JUNO Award winning bangers, club anthems, and latin pop kept the good vibes going all night long! 🤙🏻
Our friends 19+ had the opportunity to enjoy the Heineken 0.0 Beer Garden operated by your friends at The Cellar Pub 🍻, the first EVER wet-dry feature of an event for the SU.
This was certainly a night you didn’t want to miss!

alx veliz

Our 2018 opening act is an artist whose emergence comes at a great time in music – a time when dancing rules, where cultures embrace, and when optimism rides high. Alx Veliz brought an electrifying, synth-driven pop & Latin rhythm, to this day calling students from across campus to the dance floor with the sound of his newest hit - Dancing Kizomba .

DANGEROUS 🔥 is one word you could use to describe our 2018 Headliner….or was it that girl? 4x JUNO Award winner Kardinal Offishall rocked our headliner spot bringing everything from throwback jams to current high-energy rap. It was impossible to walk away from the venue with an ounce of energy after dancing all night long to this one of a kind performance.

Reasons to love UNB?

We’ve got 1785.

With a history this large, you’re gonna want to be a part of it.

Founded in 1785 the University of New Brunswick stands as Canada’s oldest english speaking university, an honour filled with centuries of traditions we as students couldn’t wait to be a part of. UNBSU Campus Events took over the Friday of Homecoming 2018 to deliver an unforgettable day of celebrating our rich history, as well as the 6000 undergrads who make our campus the home it is today.

live music & Wine night on the cellar Patio

Perhaps a new Hoco tradition for UNB? This incredible night of laughs featuring student performers had the Cellar Patio packed like we’ve never seen before. Whether it was the music, friends, fresh snacks, or staying cozy in our red and black blankets that made the night such a stand out - you’ll have to come next year and see for yourself!

HOCO carnival in the quad

The rain may have moved much of the carnival indoors, nothing keeps a true RED from taking their turn on a mechanical bull! Sporting our limited edition Hoco T, students gathered in the SUB to spend the afternoon celebrating the unique and vibrant history of our university - with help from a few of our local friends of course! Goodlife, Domino’s, and Supplement King kept the crowds fed and entertained while carnival classics such as cotton candy and fresh popcorn made their way around the Atrium too!

Think you’ve seen it all? Just. Wait.

Still to come:

Winter Carnival
