We are pleased to announce the return of the 16th annual UBC FarmAde! Started in 2001 as a (successful) community effort to help save the UBC farm from residential development. FarmAde has grown over the years into one of the largest annual events at UBC. It marks the beginning of UBC’s school year, the harvest season and reliably occurs on one of the first Fridays of September. FarmAde brings everyone together for a big bash to celebrate the end of summer. It is also known as one of the only free and all ages welcome back dances at UBC for the return of the school year!
