BIG APPLE SPRING CONVENTION 2021:
LEVEL UP!

Friday, April 23rd - Sunday, April 25th


Welcome to the BAR Spring Convention 2021 website! When we think about "Level Up!", we're reminded of the adrenaline rush that comes with reaching a new level in an old video game–the perfect mixture of new energy and nostalgia. This weekend will not only reflect this feeling, but will surpass barriers and "level up" beyond the limit!

Through the weekend, we’ll have a huge variety of experiences. We'll celebrate the best of Big Apple virtually on Friday evening and the first half of Saturday, then we'll gather in-person for Saturday evening! You can find the full schedule, along with clickable Zoom links, below. You can also check out all the information about the team that brought you this convention, add a note to the Class of 2021 in our Senior Yearbook, see how to join pop-up experiences, and more. Thank you for joining us for an unforgettable weekend!

-Mia, Eli, and your Spring Convention Leadership Team
