Welcome 2019

Belonging Matters

Join us on Sunday, September 22nd, from 12:30pm-4:00pm on Cross Campus (450 College Street) for the 2019 Multicultural Block Party!

Inspired by the theme “Belonging Matters”, this year’s block party will continue to celebrate the diversity of Yale University, its community members, and New Haven through interactive music, dance, designs, language, signs and symbols, cultural performances, sampling of ethnic foods and seasonings, and many more cultural expressions. Check back soon for updates on the programming.

Now in its seventh year, the Multicultural Block Party is an annual, family-friendly event. All members of the Yale Community are invited to attend. The event is sponsored by a collaboration between Yale organizations, including the eight affinity groups, and local businesses.
