Winter Carnival On-Campus Events

Over the past few years, DUPB has been committed to increasing the programs that are offered on campus leading up to the on-mountain experience at Keystone Resort. In the past, events have included movies, canvas painting, the chili cook-off, a Winter Carnival Kick-Off, and more.

This year, we will be bringing even MORE amazing and FREE events to help kick-off the start of Winter Carnival!

Monday, February 5th - 4 to 8 pm on Driscoll Green

WinterFest: Even though Colorado has been pretty warm, DUPB is creating a winter wonderland! We will be bringing back the magical horse-drawn carriage rides that make you feel as if you're in a movie! Drink some hot cocoa and warm up with a hot soup bar, and grab a pair of Winter Carnival themed socks! While you drink your hot chocolate, hang out by some fire pits, listen to some music, and you'll have the chance to do some virtual skiing!

Tuesday, February 6th - 5 to 8 pm in Katherine Ruffatto Hall

Rest & Relaxation Night: Week 6 is stressful - we get it! Come chill out with DUPB! We will have masseuses and acupuncturists, board games, coloring books, and anything else you might need to have a relaxing night. There will also be refreshments such as tea, coffee, and hot cocoa in a Winter Carnival mug you can keep, and supplies to decorate your own cookies! Then you can unwind and cuddle up with some blankets as you watch a movie - all held in Katherine Ruffatto Hall!

Wednesday, February 7th - 5 to 8 pm in Driscoll Ballroom

Chili Cook-off!: That's right! We are bringing back a Winter Carnival favorite: the Chili Cook-off! Groups can register to participate here. DUPB is partnering with the Hospitality School to provide tasting spoons, knives, cookware and utensils. DUPB will be providing each team with ingredients based off of their recipe. Our panel of judges will award on taste, while all attending students will vote on the Most Popular Chili Recipe! The winning team will win gift cards to local community restaurants. All attendees will get a chance to win raffle prizes such and a GO Pro and bluetooth headphones. Don't miss out on the opportunity to participate in this tradition! Team registration closes soon!

Thursday, February 8th - 7 to 9 pm in Magness Arena

Game Night: DUPB is partnering with athletics for you to have a fun night cheering on your DU Basketball team! Come to Magness Arena to pick up your registration packet, hang out with your friends, watch some basketball, and have a good time! We will be tailgating beforehand to get hyped up and to hand out some swag! Stay tuned for other fun giveaways and contests at the game!
