The Sixth Annual CAA Picnic

Try something new this year! Join the Columbia Alumni Association (CAA) at the Sixth Annual CAA Picnic, a summer tradition with a new twist.

This year’s picnic goes beyond borders. Try foods of the world and give international dance steps a whirl while kids of all ages have fun in the sun. Activities include:

  • International cuisines from around the
    world—sample Caribbean, Asian, European, Mediterranean, and Israeli
    foods, as well as traditional American fare
  • Extra food items include cotton candy and popcorn
  • Activities include bounce house, carnival games, field day games, croquet, bocce, and corn hole toss
  • Get your face painted, an airbrushed temporary tattoo, henna art, or a balloon animal
  • Dance to the DJ’s tunes and try out a Bollywood dance class
  • Learn about surface energy through bubbles with a PhD student from the School of Engineering and Applied Science
  • Take a campus tour and learn Columbia trivia
  • And more to be announced

Show your spirit by wearing Columbia gear—or blue and white—and have a great time with your Columbia family!
