Bentley’s annual Phoenix Fest Carnival is held at the beginning of each academic year on our Upper School campus in Lafayette. This all-day, K-12 event for over 700 Bentley students features inflatables, carnival games, face painting, arts and crafts, prizes, field games, and a delicious barbecue lunch from the Bentley Commons.
As a tradition, each of our nine “Little Bentley” grades (K-8) wear different colored tee shirts, while the entire Upper School student body wears the classic Bentley blue.
This beloved event is a tribute to the interconnectedness of our school, with our oldest students delighting in and caring for our youngest learners. The entire event is run by students for students.
Although we were unable to enjoy Phoenix Fest in-person this year due to COVID-19, an all-day virtual extravaganza was a fun, memorable experience for all members of the Bentley community.
