Pagio Inc. and the Shrewsbury Street Merchants' Association are partnering for the Eighth Annual Shrewsbury Street College Shuffle. Based off the very popular Taste of Shrewsbury Street, the College Shuffle is exclusively for college students and the college community (including faculty, staff and families).

This event is a tradition for all Worcester-area college students. The previous College Shuffles were each a great success with over 2,000 participants enjoying great food from over 20 restaurants!


The schedule for the day includes food tastings from participating restaurants on Shrewsbury Street, commonly known as Restaurant Row. During the shuffle, there will be college performance groups entertaining strollers along the street. In addition, vendors and sponsors will set up booths along the street.

Free Transportation

Free transportation will be provided throughout the day from most campuses to Shrewsbury Street and back to each campus; see bus stop schedule. Check with your Student Activities Office for more information. There is free parking along the street.


To purchase an admission button for $10 in advance, a VALID COLLEGE I.D. must be presented to your college's Office of Student Activities. The button must be worn to attend the event and participate in the food tastings and other activities along the street. College faculty and other college staff, along with students' family members, are invited to attend as well. Day-of-event price of buttons is $15. A valid college-issued I.D. will be required for all purchases.
