Come one, come all to ThurtenE 2017!
Celebrate the 110th anniversary of ThurtenE Carnival at our “Picture Perfect” celebration! Enjoy the magic and tradition of the oldest and largest-student run carnival in the nation.
ThurtenE Carnival involves dozens of student groups and showcases the uniqueness, creativity and hard work of the student body at Washington University in St. Louis. With never-before-seen Carnival attractions, the weekend will be one for the books!
Coinciding with Alumni Weekend, ThurtenE is not only a time to bring together the past and present, but to lay the foundations for a brighter future. Net proceeds from the carnival this year will be donated to our community partner, the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition. The Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition is a nonprofit organization which benefits the lives of foster children by recruiting and supporting foster and adoptive families in the St. Louis metropolitan community. The Coalition’s innovative programs are dedicated to finding a permanent home for a foster child in a fraction of the time it would normally take, and preparing adoptive parents and children with the resources to see long-term success.
