BSD-festivalmap600

Wristbands, student ID and age ID will be required to enter the event. A wristband is needed but does not guarantee entry into the event. Sorry. It’s inconvenient but those are the rules to ensure everyone’s safety and ability to have fun.

  • MacEwan Hall AB Doors open at noon. You will enter the event on the NE side of the building (near Science B).

FAQ

  • BSD has been a tradition at the University of Calgary for 59 years, having started in 1960. It has long served an important purpose for UCalgary students by fostering a sense of UCalgary pride and building campus community.
  • In 1989 the university approached the SU and asked that we host a single, large event on campus to celebrate BSD. The hope was that we would be able to offer a safe and fun environment for students to celebrate the last day of classes.

A few reasons:

  • Cost: the parking lot was an incredibly expensive venue.
  • Weather: the weather is increasingly unpredictable (thanks climate change).
  • Trying something new: we want to make sure that BSD is fun for everyone and having it inside means we can have a few different venues with more drink choices, more music choices, and different activities.

  • Come to the North Courtyard of Mac Hall April 8 – 11 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Bring your student ID and age ID.

  • The SU focuses on creating a safe but fun environment for students to celebrate the last day of classes. Most of our costs are linked to security and safety, including previously paying for security guards and Calgary Police Service presence all over campus, not just at our event.
  • BSD has been a tradition at the UCalgary for 59 years, having started in 1960. Students have told us that BSD is an important part of their university experience and that’s why we continue to host it every year. BSD fosters a sense of UCalgary pride and builds campus community for many students.
