Georgetown Community, Neighbors Gather for Campus Fair and Tailgate
October 15, 2013 – More than 100 university members and community neighbors gathered for food, games, music and more on Oct. 12 for the Georgetown Community Fair and Tailgate, sponsored by the Georgetown Community Partnership (GCP).
GCP is composed of senior university leaders, students, faculty and staff, elected leaders of the Advisory Neighborhood Commission (ANC) and presidents of the neighborhood citizens associations. The group provides a new forum for collaborative conversations involving the university, its neighbors and the Washington, D.C. community.
Neighborhood children and those of university faculty and staff played games, met Georgetown’s Jack the Bulldog mascot and had their faces painted by university students.
The fair also featured representatives from campus departments including performing arts, Yates Field House, athletics, Hoya Kids Club, GUWellness, as well as neighborhood and community organizations.
Many fair and tailgate participants used their free tickets to later cheer on Georgetown as the football team faced Fordham.
