Carnival 2024

Saturday, May 18th from 10am to 3pm

Rain or shine! 

Carnival is back and expanding its impact with a community raffle, a silent auction, rides, games, and activities for all ages including a train ride, bungee trampoline, obstacle courses, and more! Building on the success of last year's Carnival we will be engaging families with free rides and activities. Gordon's Carnival will continue to be the school's largest fundraising event, but the focus will be on raising resources through sponsorship and donations and shifting away from ticket sales for rides and activities.


Carnival will be Saturday, May 18th from 10am to 3pm, rain or shine, open to students, parents, alumni and their parents, grandfriends, friends, and community members.

Carnival is no fun without you!

There are dozens of ways to help make this year's Carnival the best one ever. Choose your adventure at

Register to unlock all the action

In order to participate fully in Carnival, everyone is asked to register in advance using the form below. Having registrations in advance will help us plan and ensure that everyone has a wonderful time.

When families preregister, they will receive a packet which will include wristbands for entry, and tickets for free food items. Food and drink will also be available for purchase.

Packets will be available for pickup in the Commons beginning Monday, May 13th, and registrations can be done in-person during drop off that week. Walk-ups will also be welcomed at Carnival.

Carnival t-shirts

Commemorate this year's fun with a themed tee! Shirts are $15 each and must be ordered in advance.  No shirts will be available at the event. Order by April 29th. T-shirts will be distributed in the days before Carnival.

Order t-shirts here! 

Two t-shirt colors available: candy pink or lime green.

What about the fundraising?

The fundraising will happen through our community raffle and the silent auction. Carnival attendees will also be able to make a direct donation at a level that is meaningful to them.

Thank you to our Carnival sponsors! Any money raised through the raffle, the auction and donations will go directly to supporting the Gordon Fund.

Silent Auction and Community Raffle
