Spring Carnival

Carnegie Mellon's Spring Carnival is three days of amusement park rides, adventures in booths, unhealthy snacks, and buggy races.

Join us April 11-14, 2024 as we celebrate over 100 years of fun, laughter, booth, buggy, and being a Tartan!

Carnegie Mellon's oldest tradition is a favorite of students, alumni, faculty, and staff!

Each year, Carnival is planned and executed by our own Spring Carnival Committee. We love what we do. Alumni Association provides us with access to our amazing alumni network and helps with scheduling, and the Activities Board puts on our big events, such as the concert and comedian. Buggy is held by Sweepstakes Committee. Carnival is the best time of the year for us. Come see what we’re talking about!
