The 2024 Abernethy Carnival will take place 5:30-8pm on Friday, May 17

Bracelet sales and volunteering opportunities will be available on Konstella!


What is Carnival?

Carnival is a (fun)raiser, beloved school tradition and HUGE celebration for Abernethy students and the wider community. Families can enjoy traditional carnival games and prizes, inflatable obstacle courses, musical cakes, face-painting, balloon animals and a photo booth. Food trucks offer a selection of pizza, hot dogs, bento boxes and shaved ice treats. A flat fee is charged for kids admission, which buys each participant a wristband and allows kids to move freely between games and activities all night long. 

Do adults need a wristband?

Adults DO NOT need to purchase a wristband. We need you to supervise the games as a volunteer!


How do I buy a wristband?

Wristbands can be purchased online by using this link or scanning the QR on the poster. They can also be purchased at the school gazebo before and after school May 13 – May 17 where cash and check will be accepted. 

When do I get my wristband?

Wristbands can be picked up in the gazebo either before and after school May 13-17 or during the carnival. 


Does the carnival wristband cover food?

In addition to unlimited games and activities, admission wristbands allow each child one cotton candy, one popcorn and one donut. Wristbands DO NOT cover food purchased from third-party vendors, such as pizza or shaved ice. Wristbands also do not cover Fairy Sparkle hair services. 


What if I need financial assistance?

We want EVERY child to enjoy carnival regardless of ability to pay!! Please contact counselor, 

Jenny Morgan, if you or someone you know is in need of financial assistance:


Where do Carnival proceeds go?

Carnival's primary function is to bring our community together to celebrate. It is not a traditional fundraiser. The carnival committee does its best to price wristbands appropriately to cover expenses. Any proceeds go directly to the PTA general fund where they are used to enhance school programs.


How can I help make carnival a success?

Carnival is a true community event and relies heavily on parents and community participation. Consider volunteering to help set up, run a carnival game, bag up cotton candy, or sell wristbands. Sign-up by scanning the QR code on the carnival flier or clicking this link. Questions about volunteering?


If you aren’t able to volunteer, consider dropping off a store-bought cake or baked good for the VERY POPULAR musical cake-a-palooza. Donations will be collected in the auditorium the day of the event. Questions about cake-a-palooza?
