50th Anniversary Season Block Party | SEPT 18

Gather your family and friends and meet us on Stafford Commons to celebrate 50 years of innovation with NC State LIVE! The FREE event from 1-5pm will feature jaw-dropping performances by Squonk (think house sized puppets that you can control), interactive craft making, student performing groups, and who could forget the cake and ice cream? This is a celebration not to be missed.
