Dear Campus Organizations and University Departments,

On Saturday April 18th, 2015, ASUCI will be hosting the annual Wayzgoose Festival in Aldrich Park from 10:00AM to 3:00PM. Wayzgoose is a part of Celebrate UCI, the campus open house. We invite all campus groups to participate in Wayzgoose by hosting a booth that contributes to the event by selling food or hosting a game. Your support is essential to the success of this UCI community event and this is a great opportunity for your group to recruit new members, raise money, or perform a group activity. Last year’s event was a huge success and we are excited to see Wayzgoose grow again this year!

Wayzgoose 2015 is a sustainable festival. We strongly encourage each group to reflect the 50th Anniversary theme in their booth decorations and attire. There will be a water bottle refilling station, so please bring a water bottle.

Please note the following facts and dates:

  • Monday, March 2nd: Booth sign-ups begin online
  • Friday, March 27th: Booth sign-ups end at 11:59 p. m. online

In our continuing effort to reward those who plan ahead, Wayzgoose booth spaces will remain self-assigned this year. To officially sign-up, your group must select your booth’s location, determine your booth activity, and pay the registration fee in full.

We hope that you will share in the excitement and the enthusiasm that is the 2015 Wayzgoose Festival. If you should have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us in ASUCI at (949) 824-2400.
