Calling all Harvard students, alumni, family and friends, and community members! Join us for Fall Fest 2021, an event where Harvard Community members, Crimson, and Big Green fans and everyone in between can gather for an afternoon of fall festivities.
Reconnect with old friends or make new ones at a tailgate and enjoy a great pregame atmosphere around the Stadium, then head into Harvard Stadium to watch the Crimson battle its rivals to the North, the Dartmouth Big Green.
Join policy makers, urban designers, and artists in Boston and Cambridge for a discussion about the future of public art!

As engaged citizens call for the removal of certain public monuments that evoke harmful systems, the conversation about the role of public art in our communities gains momentum.
