WestFest 2018

Posted: May 18, 2018

What the west campus of The Ohio State University lacks in crowds and action, it more than makes up for as a hub for next-generation technology and scientific  influence worldwide.

This Saturday, May 19, the campus has its annual time to shine. 

WestFest 2018, a free public event, returns from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the West Campus Quad (between Scott, Rightmire, Bevis, and Pressey Halls). WestFest is a family-friendly event showcasing sustainability and outreach efforts at Ohio State and beyond. 

Participating departments and organizations include: Arabidopsis Biological Resource Center, Byrd Polar & Climate Research Center, Center for Applied Plant Sciences, Center for Automotive Research, OBIC, Sea Grant/Stone Lab, Office of Energy and Environment, Orton Geological Museum, and more.

In addition to displays and hands-on activities highlighting research at Ohio State, there are tours of the Arabidopsis Biological Resource Center and Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center (available on a first-come, first-served basis).

Food trucks Broke Johnny, Empanadas & More, and Maanas will be on hand. A bike valet is provided by Yay Bikes!
