The theme for this year's Staff Fest is "Be Bold - Be Emory!" Staff Fest 2017 will be held on May 12, from 12:00 noon – 3:00 pm on the Quad, with games, music, dancing, and food! Note: some events start earlier, see below.

LUNCH: Lunch will be provided while quantities last and serving will begin promptly at 12:00 noon. Menu includes: chopped beef brisket or pulled chicken, barbeque baked beans, potato salad, cheddar biscuits, fresh fruit, and a small dessert. Vegetarian option is a black bean burger. Lunch is by Jim 'N Nicks.

Note: No badges or meal tickets are needed. There is only one food line for all attendees. Attendees who are in line can receive one meal per person only (you cannot pickup a meal for a co-worker) and no extra “to go” meals will be permitted.

Beverages include an assortment of Coca-Cola products. A big thanks goes out to our sponsor, Coca-Cola!coca-cola logo

Popcorn and ice cream will also be available on the Quad.

BRING YOUR OWN WATER BOTTLE: In order to support Emory's sustainability goals, we want to encourage everyone to bring their own re-usable water bottle to Staff Fest. This will limit the amount of plastic water bottles we disseminate. And you might even win a prize! Show your water bottle to HR staff at the T-shirt table to enter your name into a drawing for a grand prize!

REMINDER: Staff Fest is for current staff and retirees only. Family members will not be admitted.  

No Emory Information Central this year: In order to accommodate lunch and offer seating in more places on the Quad, Staff Fest 2017 will not include Emory Information Central (department tables and booths).
