From dog and art shows to square dancing and barn tours, U of G’s annual College Royal open house has something for every taste.

Kicking off on St. Patrick’s Day, the event will take place March 17-18, 9 5 p.m.

This year’s College Royal theme is “Luck of the Royal.” 

Now in its 94th year, College Royal is the largest university open house of its kind in North America. The event draws thousands of visitors each year who come to explore all that U of G has to offer. The University’s students, faculty and staff will showcase the many ways in which U of G bridges farm life, city life and the larger community in food innovation and agriculture, science, engineering and the arts.

New this year is a lecture series with U of G professors, starting each day at 2:45 p.m. A College Royal app on Apple and Android devices contains all the information you need to know about the open house weekend.
