Scare Fair 2016

Scare Fair 2016

Rush Rhees Library
October 28, 2016 1:00pm to 4:00pm

This year’s Scare Fair, hosted annually by Rush Rhees Library, is a blast from the past! Inspired by the runaway success of Stranger Things and set in the new Evans Lam Square, the celebration will pay homage to classic 80’s culture with a high-tech twist.

Come to Rush Rhees for:


The Stack Stalk

Grab your tickets for the Stack Stalk at the ticket booth next to the Q&i area. Each ticket will send you on an adventure around the library. Once you’ve visited your four assigned locations to get a stamp (and some candy, of course!) you will be eligible to tour the iconic Rush Rhees tower!

Tickets limited to the first 350 students!


Tower Tours

Bring your completed ticket to the blue elevators to visit the top of the tower! Don’t forget to use our hashtag #strangURthings when you post your pictures from the top. We’ll be picking winners throughout the event to win fun prizes.


Photo/video booths and Augmented Reality

You have to see it to believe it.


Costume Contest

Featuring live music from Vocal Point! Be sure to wear your costume to compete at 2:30. Vice President Paul Burgett will be on hand to emcee the annual contest, which is always a great time. Prizes abound.



RCL, the IT Center, and the Writing Fellows will be running entertainment all day to keep things exciting!



Sponsored by the Friends of the University of Rochester Libraries (FURL) and RCL, we’re looking forward to cider, donuts, apples, popcorn, and more!


One last thing…

This year, there’s a way to skip the line!

Check the hashtag #strangURthings for clues to help us find Barb.
