EventPW Presents Outerspace Festival
Time: N/A
Location: PW (7 Young Orchard Drive)

The PW Outerspace festival started in the 1960s during the space race as a way to celebrate all participants in PW shows being allowed to be launched into outer space. Together, the PW community would build a fully-functional rocket ship with a $750 budget and then choose 3 lucky members to board it and be launched into space.Unfortunately, this is no longer possible, but the Outerspace festival has lived on in the form of a fun, care-free day of performances, good food, and rays of sun. OUTSIDE!!All performers welcome!! (No astronauts though–not since the Buzz Aldrin incident of ’03). Singers, dancers, musicians, comedians, acrobats, clowns, lion tamers, and seals who can balance a ball on their nose: we want to see it all! If you would like to perform, please send your ideas to either benjamin_m_silver@brown.edu or fletcher_bell@brown.edu. A schedule of performances will soon be posted here.
