Join us at NeighborFest 2021

2016 NeighborFest

For the 40th year (we skipped a COVID-plagued 2020), St. Thomas invites neighbors to campus for food, fun, camaraderie, ice cream and bluegrass music.

Date & Time:

Thursday, August 12, 2021
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM


John P. Monahan Plaza, south of the football field (one block east of Cretin)

NeighborFest will be in August again in 2021 (rather than the customary July) for reasons that we hope neighbors will love:

  1. Fewer conflicts with your family vacation.
  2. More opportunities to meet student leaders and athletes, who return to campus earlier than other students.
  3. A chance to meet staff members representing the Office of Sustainability Initiatives, the Office of International Students & Scholars, and more.

Join us in 2021 for this 40th annual event, when neighbors are invited to learn more about campus resources open to the public -- including the student-run Stewardship Garden, O'Shaughnessy-Frey Library, the Selim Center for Lifelong Learning and Campus Stores.

In addition:

  • Relax by the refreshing campus fountain.
  • Tap your toes to bluegrass music by the Broadfork String Band
  • Munch on fruit, fresh vegetables, ice cream and other free "eats."
  • Enjoy inexpensive hamburger, hot dog and veggie burger baskets.
  • Frolic with the Baron of Bubble, and take advantage of face painting and balloon animals for the kids.
  • And, new this year: Bring food items to donate to Keystone Community Services, to help our neighbors in need. Monetary donations will be welcome as well (cash, check or credit card).

No RSVP required. Gather your friends and family, or come over by yourself. Hundreds of your neighbors will be here to welcome you. Questions? Contact Director of Neighborhood Relations Amy Gage: 651-962-6123.
