The Festival kicks off at 6:00 p.m. with dinner and games, followed by trick-or-treating through the College’s residence halls, and a spooky haunted house in the Student Union Building.

Students from Warner Pacific College are volunteering their time to provide the Family Fall Festival for the Southeast Portland community. This ethic of serving others is a key component to the mission of the College and is part of their philosophy to be “In the City, For the City.” The Family Fall Festival presents a perfect opportunity for neighbors to get to know the Warner Pacific community in a fun and safe environment.
