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 the fall season and an exciting time 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:  Bethany Ritchey or Jillian Marwell.

Fall Frolics Wristbands

We are excited to, once again, offer the option to preorder a wrist band. This will give a child unlimited access to the games and inflatables for the duration of Fall Frolics. Individual tickets and sheets of tickets will still be available for purchase at the event for $1.00/ticket. Please note: the wristband can not be used for food and beverages, prizes, raffle tickets or shopping. Pre ordered wristbands will be available for pickup at the ticket booth on event day.
