Biggest Party on the East Coast

Check out this article from yesterday’s Cavalier Daily. Student writer Nancy Chae explains how Easters weekend at UVA was one of the biggest party weekends on the east coast during the 1960s, 70s and 80s. Students from other universities in Virginia and schools outside of the state would come to UVA and flood the campus with alcohol and debauchery. The grass field behind Madison Hall, “MadBowl,” was party central, and it often turned into a drunken mud pit. The event was so big and wild, UVA officials decided to cancel the event in the early 1980s. The year after Easters was canceled, Foxfield races became the new party destination for university students.
