About this Event

Host Organization: Department of Advancement

Carleton University is celebrating its 75th anniversary and we want to celebrate with you!

Join us for a day of entertainment, great food and Carleton pride in Parking Lot 5. Take a ride on the 50 foot ferris wheel, complete the inflatable obstacle course or delight in some traditional carnival fare. Enjoy a local beer in the beer garden while watching performances by the Chemistry Magic Show, student groups and our very own Carleton Cheerleading team.

The birthday bash coincides with the homecoming football game, where the Ravens will take on Waterloo at MNP Park.
