Home Edition

48th Annual Suffolk Variety Show

Join with the Suffolk community live in our Facebook Watch Party

on Friday April 24th at 7pm

The Show Must Go On!

SpringFest has been a Suffolk tradition for almost half a century. It has taken on a variety of forms during that time – it used to feature a baking competition, and for a time it was FallFest –
but this will be the first time you can watch it at home.

Every year, the Suffolk community gathers to celebrate the arts and community at Suffolk with a star-studded variety show featuring the hidden and not-so-hidden talents of Suffolk students, faculty, staff and alumni. It highlights what is at the heart of Suffolk – creativity, diversity, joy and unity.

Although we are unable to gather this year as we have in the past, we decided this was a “the show must go on” moment. We couldn’t let this be the first time in 48 years that Suffolk didn’t have a SpringFest.  And students, faculty, staff and alums across the globe have responded to the call.

In a lot of ways, this change in format has showcased who we are at Suffolk – we are honoring our traditions while being flexible enough to adapt to new circumstances. We are thinking creatively and problem solving. We are pulling together as a community to support each other and to celebrate each other. We aren’t giving up even when things are hard. And that’s Suffolk.

We can’t be in the same place, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be together. We hope you will join our FACEBOOK WATCH PARTY (link) on Friday, April 24 at 7:00pm.

You can also see the show on this page (link) Where ever you are watching we hope you’ll share your reactions, applause and pictures of your watch party and baked goods on your favorite social media channels using #SuffolkSpringFest


As the COVID-19 pandemic brings about drastic changes, our students are facing crisis situations.

Suffolk alumni and friends are asking how they can help students, and we encourage any who can to support Suffolk CARES.
