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.

Enjoy games, arts and crafts, music, face painting, bounce houses, a bake sale and (vegan-friendly) barbecue. Plus, who can forget our famous dunk tank? Bring your friends and family to celebrate your school spirit and welcome the spring season – there’s something for all ages!

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 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!
