Manhattanville Community Day: Spring 2023

May 20, 2023
12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
The Forum at Columbia University, 601 W. 125th St., New York, NY 10027

Join us on the Manhattanville campus on May 20, 2023, for a free fun-filled celebration of community! Immerse yourself in the arts through Lenfest Kids film screenings and art workshops with the Wallach Art Gallery. Indulge in Uptown cuisine from flavorful food samples from Columbia-Harlem Small Business Development Center vendors. Explore the workings of the brain with the family during Saturday Science, learn about employment opportunities on campus — plus so much more.

Regardless of weather the day-of, the event will continue on–rain or shine! Though there are scheduled outdoor activities, there'll still be plenty of fun indoor programming running all day long. If you'd still like to take part in the outdoor fun, please plan to bring an umbrella!

We invite our neighbors surrounding Columbia's campuses in Morningside Heights, West Harlem, Harlem, and Washington Heights as well as Columbia affiliates to partake in this day of celebration.
