Be a Kid For The Kids!

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, the BuckeyeThon CarnOval is canceled. We look forward to holding our CarnOval safely in 2021.

CarnOval is a Carnival held on the South Oval to kick off yet another year for BuckeyeThon. Ohio State's students return for the fall to a reception of all the carnival essentials: inflatables, games, sweets, and all the other essentials. CarnOval is the spark that fans the flame to our new fundraising year!
