Packapalooza™ is back Saturday, August 27, 2022 with musical headliner American Aquarium.

For a decade, the university has welcomed students back in August with Packapalooza™, a campus-community street fair celebrating all things NC State. Students and the community are invited to join us on Hillsborough Street on Saturday, August 27 from 2 to 10 p.m. 

We know that the past two years have been challenging and as we come through the pandemic it will be important to have something exciting to focus on. This will be the 10th anniversary of Packapalooza™ and we will make this a memorable event.

Packapalooza™ is an all-day block party and street festival capping off Wolfpack Welcome Week at the start of the academic year. We will have everything it takes to celebrate in NC State style, including great music, activities throughout the day, and fun entertainment for the whole family. Previous year’s events have had over 85,000 attendees with over 300 vendor booths, and over 40 sponsoring organizations.
