Terp Carnival Moves Into STAMP Homecoming Fall 2021



Terp Carnival **LOCATION CHANGE**

Come spend Homecoming Friday with us at Terp Carnival in STAMP (where it'll be nice and dry) at between 4:30 and 8:30PM!

We still can't wait for Terp Carnival on Friday evening—but due to the rainy forecast, we've had to change things up a little: Terp Carnival will now take place inside STAMP. You'll be able to find carnival activities and concessions in the TerpZone and the North Atrium; the scarf giveaway will take place on the first floor, near the old Adele's Restaurant; and you'll be able to chat with partners around the food court balcony. The fireworks finale has been postponed until November 5.
