Q: Are small children allowed at the fair?
A: Absolutely. However, as it is extremely busy and quite tightly packed with bodies in the building, we encourage you to bring carriers rather than strollers as it can be extremely difficult to navigate them through the crowds.

A: Yes. Our on-campus Starbucks location will be open during the fair. Starbucks is located in the Old Main building, a short walk from the CAC.
