Light up the Night: FIFTH Annual Year-end block party

To celebrate the end of class, the McMaster University Alumni Association and the McMaster Students Union, along with numerous campus partners, including the Student Success Centre and Housing and Conference Services have partnered to create a truly awesome experience. We will Light Up the Night with thousands of bulbs strung between campus buildings and trees, along with loads of free glow swag.

The fifth annual year-end block party will feature carnivalesque rides, games and food.  Ride the Gravitron, have fun with friends in the Para-Trooper, or take in the view from the Ferris wheel. Stroll the street playing the midway games and enjoy traditional carnival food. In addition, Light Up the Night will boast a main stage, featuring the headlining musical act, The Beaches with special guest, Poesy. Buskers will perform up and down Scholars Road all night long.. In addition, the annual Last Lecture with Q&A in Wilson Hall will feature Dr. Samantha Nutt, founder of War Child Canada.

Food will be plentiful on April 9, with thousands of churros and mini-corn dogs offered up for free, along side an even bigger supply of complimentary carnival favorites such as cotton candy and caramel corn. 

This is a free event, all McMaster students & alumni are welcome. Please note, a McMaster University student card will be required for access to the free food vendors and for ride admissions. There are no tickets to purchased, but registration is required for Last Lecture, Open Mic, eSports tournament and Hungry Games.

Light Up the Night won a prestigious Canadian Event Industry award in 2016 and was a finalist for a the same honour in 2017.
