The International Arts Center, the Department of Art and Design, the University Activities Council, the Student Government Association and multiple other Troy University departments have joined forces in honor of Beat South Week to host Troyapalooza on Wednesday, Oct. 19.

The event features free food and art experiences, a costume contest, inflatables, a photo booth and a two-hour performance from POPulus. Students will also be able to screen print their own t-shirts with the help of TROY art faculty and students.

Carrie Jaxon, Director and Curator for the IAC, said they hope to beat the success of last year’s event.

“We are thrilled to have Troyapalooza back for a second year! Last year we had a wonderful attendance by our students and we hope to have even more this year,” she said. “I’m grateful to all the departments who are contributing to this festival—it’s such a great gift to the students from the TROY family. We are also happy to have SGA involved this year as well.”

Festivities kick off at the IAC Plaza and Amphitheater at 6:30 p.m., and the POPulus performance begins at 7 p.m.

Sponsors include: Troy University; International Programs; John M. Long School of Music; Academic Affairs; Troy University Libraries; University Activities Council; Student Services; Student Government Association; Department of Art and Design; and the International Arts Center.
