Kaleidoscope History

Kaleidoscope, the university’s annual festival and open house, was established in 1985 to open the campus to its neighbors, highlight the academic pursuits of the university and celebrate the diverse array of individuals and activities that help make CSULB the unique campus community that it is.

More than 30,000 people attend Kaleidoscope each year. The festival traditionally features nearly 200 exhibits and displays, including games, rides, hands-on demonstrations and food and retail booths sponsored by students, staff, faculty and community groups. The festival is fun and educational for people of all ages. Parking and admission are free.

Numerous campus events are held in conjunction with the Kaleidoscope Festival. Many groups have benefited by co-scheduling their on-campus events as a part of the Kaleidoscope Festival. Benefits provided by the Kaleidoscope office include assistance with publicity, logistics, parking, equipment and facilities. The following CSULB events have strengthened their success as a result of their involvement with Kaleidoscope: Alumni Pavilion, Engineering Day, Earth Day, the Associated Students Kaleido-Carnival, CSULB Open House and the Muscle Car 500 Pushcart Race.
