The 24th annual Grad Alley will take place on Tuesday, May 19, 2020 from 5:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. 

Grad Alley is an annual celebration, held the night before Commencement, to mark the accomplishments of the graduating class. The Class of 2020 and their families and friends are invited to attend.

Join your fellow graduates for festivities, food, and fun in this street fair near Washington Square. Games, refreshments, and entertainment will line the streets of West Fourth Street, Gould Plaza, and Schwartz Plaza including the NYU Jazz Cafe, jugglers, Lady Liberty, and more. Stop by the Kimmel Center for more food and entertainment - and catch a performance by the Illusionist at the Skirball Center. View the Empire State Building lit violet in honor of the Class of 2020.

Grad Alley takes place rain or shine.
