Garden Fest

Garden FestIn collaboration with the Garden Fest Committee, Bakersfield College Student Government Association (BCSGA) will be hosting the Garden Fest's Carnival Game Competition. Please carefully read the information as items have been changed from previous year for registered student organizations (StudOrgs).
Carnival Game Competition
Get fired up about the annual BC Carnival Competition and a chance to win $250 for the best carnival attraction. The Carnival Competition booth spaces are free to registered StudOrgs or student intercollegiate athletic groups. All StudOrg booths are located within the designated Carnival area. BCSGA will provide participating StudOrgs with one 8ft table. Chairs and canopies will not be provided. 
Student groups are strongly encouraged to host a booth that is practical, simple, and original for carnival entries and encourages teams to enter basic carnival games—for examples, a football, ring toss, go fishing, duck pond, or basketball toss or dart throw – or something inexpensive and creative.  Since children and community members attend, groups are encouraged to show BC spirit by wearing BC gear, and giving their game booth a creative flavor. Here is a site with great ideas: 
Competition Guidelines:
StudOrg booth must be set-up and ready to go by 8:30 am on April 21st
StudOrg booth must remain open until after 4:00 pm on April 21st
StudOrg must be registered and in good standing with the Office of Student Life
StudOrg game is based on creativity, Renegade Pride, and BC spirit
StudOrg members participating the day of the event must sign a general release and waiver of liability form
In addition to the Carnival game competition, groups are allowed to use the space to fundraise for their organization. This fundraiser must be pre-approved by the Office of Student Life and the Garden Fest Committee. Items sold must not be offered for sale by the Horticulture Dept. (i.e. plants). Depending on the item, catered or prepared foods may not be allowed for sale. This is also a great time to introduce your organization to the Bakersfield community and get more members. 
BC Carnival Competition form must be completed and submitted by April 18, 2018. For more information email
