Jagapalooza, brought to you by the Student Activities Programming Board (SAPB), is IUPUI’s end-of-the-year carnival. It has all the fun and excitement you need before final exams begin. Come on out to enjoy carnival rides, games, novelty artists, food trucks, and more. Jagapalooza is one of the best ways to spend your Friday night on the IUPUI campus. It’s open to all IUPUI students, faculty, and staff. Guests are permitted if accompanied by an IUPUI student, faculty, or staff member. For more information, follow SAPB on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
New this year
Tradition doesn’t have to mean old and outdated. Now in its seventh year, Jagapalooza is back with more excitement than ever before. Check out more carnival rides, more games, more food trucks, and more novelty artists. Test your skills on the 25-foot climbing wall, take a photo in front of our Jagapalooza giant Lite Bright, or be amazed by one of our strolling circus performers. When the sun goes down, the lights go up for Indy’s only downtown carnival.
Be a part of the IUPUI tradition
Do you have outreach goals to engage more than 4,000 IUPUI students, faculty, and staff? Consider sponsoring Jagapalooza. Whether you are a registered student organization, a campus office, or an external business, we have sponsorship packages to meet your needs.
Ranging from $50 to $5,000, our sponsorships offer you opportunities to have a booth at Jagapalooza, showcase your logo on official event signage and promotional items, and even have your name associated with the event itself. Sponsoring Jagapalooza impacts the lives of students, supports our university, and brings to life our vibrant campus tradition.
