More than 10,000 Queen’s community members – including all first-year students and their orientation leaders – took to University Avenue on Wednesday, Sept. 4 for the ASUS Sidewalk Sale.

The annual event featured more than 300 booths, including Queen’s clubs and departments, as well as local, national, and international businesses. To accommodate the sale, University Avenue was closed between Union and Stuart streets.

Principal and Vice-Chancellor Patrick Deane took the opportunity both to tour some of the booths with Kingston and the Islands MPP Ian Arthur and to connect with students.

Each vendor taking part in the giant sale applied for a space on the street and as always proceeds will support the Canadian Cancer Society.
