Walton College welcomes students back to campus each year through the event to showcase student clubs, administrative departments and opportunities at the college. Attendees may meet Walton College faculty and staff, along with Razorback Spirit Squads and mascots.

This year, thanks to Ozarks Coca-Cola/Dr Pepper Bottling Company, one student has a chance to win more than $700 worth of prizes, including a Coke mini-cooler, custom Gold Peak Apple AirPods and custom Coke kettle-popcorn maker. For an opportunity to win, students must complete a Block Party passport. Students collect passport stamps at specific tents to be eligible for the drawing.
