Calhoun Carnival

The Calhoun Carnival is the biggest and best carnival on the Upper West Side, and it takes place every year on the first Saturday in May, from 11-5pm.

Games, music, craft activities, the first barbecue of the season—there's something for everyone! The first Calhoun Carnival (previously known as the Spring Fair) was held in the 1963. The Parents Association hasn't missed a year since. Event proceeds fund the Parent Association's Annual Tea and awards to faculty and staff.
