Join UNISUS at this year's Light Up Summerland Event

UNISUS is excited to announce our participation in LightUP Summerland on November 24th, 2023!

Come try baked holiday treats from around the world

UNISUS parent and student councils will be hosting a booth celebrating our many nationalities with baked holiday goods from around the world.  Instead of setting a specific price, we will kindly request a donation of your choice. Your generosity will help support a local charity (to be announced). 

Participate in a scavenger hunt celebrating Summerland Businesses

Our UNISUS Senior students are also excited to announce a scavenger hunt to run from 4 to 7pm on November 24th, which will require the solving of riddles to find and celebrate local businesses in our Summerland Core.  Those who solve all riddles will have a chance to win an assortment of prizes which will be awarded at 7:30pm at our UNISUS booth at the festival! 

Come see the UNISUS School band perform at the Festival on the Family Stage at 6pm!
