Northeast Quad | 12-4 p.m. | Rain Date: April 21, 2018

What is QuadFest?

QuadFest is an annual festival/carnival style celebration held in the Northeast Quad. Held near the end of the semester, it is sponsored by the Northeast/Sylvan Area Government in conjunction with the Northeast House Councils. It's FREE to attend, and we bring the celebration to you; no need to go too far. Games/Activities like Rock walls, obstacle courses, Henna, and more will be available -- You'll have to come see all that's available. In other words, it's kind of like a perk for living in Northeast/Sylvan.

Make sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram. Also, be sure to like our Facebook Page for the latest updates and see photos from the event!

Frequently Asked Questions

What activities will you all have at the event?

Great question! You'll have to come to the event to see all the activities, but here are just a few: rock wall, obstacle courses, henna, corn hole, drink sampling, Antonio's Pizza.

I'm a volunteer; what do I need to know?

First of all, thank you for volunteering! Whether you're volunteering for the entire duration of the event and beyond, or just a few hours, we appreciate your time! Please make make sure that you have filled out the Google Forum by clicking "Sign Up Here!" at the top of this page. Once you have done so, we will e-mail with specific instructions/what to do come the day of the event. We are very flexible. If you have a special circumstance (e.g. need to take a break in between, etc.) feel free to reach out to us. Contact information below.

How many hours of community service will I get?

You will be awarded the actual amount of hours of service you have performed. Although the event itself is only 4 hours, we are seeking help beyond these 4 hours (prior to the event) to help set up, get organized, and so forth. If you are volunteering because of a community service requirement for a class, please make sure to bring a verification letter for the supervisor to sign. If not, we will provide one to you.
