November can be a dreary month in the middle of the fall semester. If classes are starting to drag on, and you’re in dire need of some entertainment, fear not! The thriving city of Kingston has you covered with events that cater to Queen’s University and St. Lawrence students.
Here is a short list of both low-cost and free events:
– The Kingston Vinyl Sale from November 1st to 4th at the Kingston Symphony Warehouse is a great place to peruse old tunes and pick up some inexpensive records for your collection! Vinyl record prices slowly decrease as the weekend goes on!
– The Agnes Etherington Art Centre is located right on the Queen’s campus, and it hosts a myriad of events/exhibitions all year long. Enjoy a Night of Poetry on November 8th at 6:30pm, partake in an adult art class, or take a free art tour every Thursday at lunchtime.
– Watch a Frontenacs hockey game at the Leon’s Centre for a special student rate of $19.95 per ticket.
– Grab a coffee or beer at Musiikki Café (73 Brock St) and check out local musicians. Mondays feature Jazz and Tuesdays are open mic. Maybe dust off your guitar and get on stage!
– Kingston’s Tone Deaf Festival goes through November 16-26th with both low-cost and free events. This festival celebrates adventurous sound performance at various venues around the city, such as the Agnes Atherington Art Centre and The Screening Room.
– Believe it or not, Christmas is just around the corner. Get in the spirit by watching the Santa Parade on November 17th as it travels down Princess Street after 5pm.
– The Tett Centre offers workshops at a low-cost for those interested in anything from cooking to painting to dancing. Check out their website for more details: https://www.tettcentre.org.
– Looking to stay active? Don’t forget to look into your school’s intramural sports and fitness centres. St. Lawrence students have access to Kingston YMCA’s with their student card.
