CCNY celebrates Halloween with 5th annual Scarefest on Oct. 31

After two years of being a virtual event, the 5th Annual Halloween CCNY Scarefest is back in-person for some spooky fun.
The event is open to the public on a first come, first served basis and takes place on Monday, Oct. 31 from 4-10 p.m. Adults and kids are welcome.
Groups of 10 will embark on a spooky 10-minute guided tour through the secret tunnels of City College’s creepy gothic buildings, and be in for a scary good time as our haunted tunnels come to life.

Tours begin at the North Academic Center (NAC) building lobby where the entrance is located at West 138th Street and Convent Avenue.

All visitors will leave with goodies and an adult-only (18 and up) costume contest takes place from 8-9 p.m. in the NAC Hoffman Lounge where participants can sign up no later than 8:30 p.m. The contest is sponsored by Tau Epsilon Phi CCNY and prizes for best costume will be given out.

Note: To access the campus, CCNY campus groups need Cleared4 access, and all other visitors can use their vaccine cards to gain access. Masks are optional, which is the state guideline now.
