A biweekly publication for faculty and staff

Cap & Town

September 10, 2016 - 12:00 pm to 10:00 pm

Celebrate the start of the new academic year and connect with Downtown Merced at Cap & Town, a large block party happening from noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 10, on Main Street between M Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Way.

The celebration was first held in 2009, when first lady Michelle Obama delivered the keynote address at UC Merced’s commencement ceremony. The event later expanded to include graduates of all age levels, from all schools in Merced. After taking a break in 2015, the event was revived this year, with organizers moving it to the beginning of the school year.
