NSU CommunityFest

Sunshine, music, good food, friends, and fun! Come join us on campus as we dive into Nova Southeastern University's CommunityFest. CommunityFest is a feel-good festival that celebrates and connects NSU students, employees, their families, and our community at large on NSU's Fort Lauderdale/Davie Campus each year.

CommunityFest has been a campus tradition since 2003, when student Michelle Manley brought together all NSU sharks to strengthen the NSU community and school pride on one special day. It’s a warm and wonderful festival for all who participate, and we want you to get involved with all the fun!

The next CommunityFest will take place on February 10, 2024.
