Register for Red and White Fest: An Employee Celebration

University Human Resources invites you to wear NC State gear and bring your Pack spirit to Miller Fields for Red and White Fest: An Employee Celebration on Wednesday, Nov. 2, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Miller Fields is located behind Carmichael Gymnasium between Dan Allen and Morrill drives.

This celebration of the NC State community and Wolfpack pride will feature food sponsored by TIAA, games, music and giveaways. Come engage with NC State partners, connect with colleagues and celebrate our Wolfpack. Let us know if you are planning to attend by completing this registration form

We need volunteers to help us staff this event. If you’d like to volunteer, please sign up.

Managers: Encourage Employees To Attend the Fest

Managers, please try to accommodate employees who would like to attend Red and White Fest. In addition, we’d appreciate it if you encourage your team to go. We advocate for teams to attend the fest together for team building and fun. If you can’t attend the on-campus event, we encourage work teams to celebrate their accomplishments by hosting a tailgate or picnic wherever they are. 

Also, plan to attend or view the live stream of the Chancellor’s Fall Address on Monday, Oct. 31. This is another great opportunity to foster team building and Pack pride during Red and White Week.

Help Pack the Shelves

Red and White Fest will also be an opportunity for everyone to participate in Pack the Shelves, a program that supports Feed the Pack, NC State’s food pantry. Bring a food item to the event and drop it off in a container that we will provide for your college or division. Every person who brings a food item can enter a raffle to win prizes. The college or division that collects the most donations will be named the Red and White Fest Champion. Visit the Feed the Pack website to see a list of the pantry’s most-needed food items or to learn how to support the pantry by volunteering or providing monetary donations.

Tell Us Why You’re a Proud Member of the Wolfpack

Part of Red and White Fest’s purpose is to promote Pack pride, and we want to see who has the most pride in our employee community. Send a photo, short video or essay to that describes why you are proud to be a member of the Wolfpack community. We will accept individual and team submissions. The Red and White Fest Spirit Team will select winners from the individual and team submissions that demonstrate the most Pack pride. 

The winners from the individual submissions will receive a prize pack that will include a 2022 Red and White Week T-shirt and other NC State swag. The top team will receive a free custom team-building retreat delivered by Learning and Organizational Development, along with Red and White Week T-shirts for the team. (maximum of 25 T-shirts). 

Get started and show us your Wolfpack pride. Submissions are due by Nov. 3, and we will announce winners Nov. 4. Creativity is encouraged.

Join Us on Social Media

We plan to promote this event and share pictures from it on a Twitter account jointly operated by UHR and University Communications and Marketing. UHR and UCOMM will use the account to share news about NC State and our employees, build community, offer contests, show off Pack pride and promote NC State as a premier employer in North Carolina.
