After 40 years there's still nothing else like it!  Associated Students of the University of Arizona's Spring Fling is back again!  Starting back in 1974, Spring Fling has become an iconic figure by providing carnival rides, games, food booths, and entertainment to both the University of Arizona and Tucson communities.

Spring Fling is the largest student-run carnival in the nation attracting over 25,000 people last year. Spring Fling provides over 35 rides and games to attendees, over 20 different food booths with a wide variety ranging from corn dogs to crab puffs.

Spring fling is planned and organized by eight student directors who work around the clock to make sure that this is a great event! Countless volunteers work before and during the event to make sure that it runs smoothly for all of your excited guests!
