Don't miss the 56th Annual Calhoun Spring Carnival on Saturday, May 4, 11am-5pm, on West 81st Street between West End Avenue and Riverside Drive.

Want to get involved? It takes a village to make the Calhoun Carnival the best fair on the Upper West Side! Here are ways to get involved:

  1. Volunteer: Lend your time for Carnival preparations and day-of activities. Sign-up information will be shared after spring break.
  2. Donate a Raffle Prize: This year we're asking our amazing community for help securing prizes. These can include (but aren't limited to) special experiences, entertainment and gift certificates. Please contact Zurn Porter at zurnporter@gmail.com before April 7 if you want to donate something or know someone who does.  
  3. Spread the Word: Tell your friends and family to save the date for the Carnival – the more the merrier!
