Fall Frolics

Fall Frolics

The Annual Fall Frolics Carnival is one of Potomac's most beloved and anticipated Potomac traditions; It is also Potomac's first big fundraiser in the school year. For over 40 years, Fall Frolics has generated more than $7.5 million to support student scholarships and faculty development.

The Fall Frolics Carnival is the highlight of a week’s activities and fun for the entire family. This popular event occurs each October, bringing our community together for a day of fun and friendship.

Activities include games and carnival rides, tattoos, hairspray, the popular Wheel of Fortune, the Spirit Store and much more. Enjoy a great lunch or snack the day away with delicious food served in the Upper School Circle. When your sweet tooth calls, stop at the Intermediate School Bake Sale booth or take a treat home for dessert!

Parent volunteers are essential to the success of Fall Frolics. Mark your calendars and plan to be a part of this community-wide event. Potomac parents and friends, old and new, are encouraged to volunteer and join in this cherished event.

Please reach out to our committee chairs to get involved: Diane Halpin and Elizabeth Sutphin.
