Fall Fest: A look back

It’s that time of year again: the changing leaves, cool and breezy weather, wearing boots and flannels and enjoying warm apple cider all mark the return of fall on campus. What better way to celebrate the arrival of the season than with Fall Fest? This event, one of the University’s annual traditions and a favorite event for students, brings smaller-name artists to campus that still have massive appeal to the student population. In addition to the artists, the Campus Activities & Programs (CAP) Center organizes tons of different activities for students that relate to the theme of the festival each year. Take a look back at the past two years as we gear up for this year’s Fall Fest: Countrified festival!

In 2010, the University “went green” with a reducing, reusing and recycling themed Fall Fest. Performer Sam Adams rocked Sojka lawn and created the perfect autumn afternoon atmosphere. Free aluminum water bottles, eco-friendly crafts and even a cake with leaves made of icing made this Fall Fest a success … and one in support of a good cause.

Fall Fest 2011 got a dose of hip-hop flavor in Lewisburg with performers Chiddy Bang and The Cool Kids. Paired with this infusion of rap talent, students made their own spray-paint t-shirts and spin-art, while they munched on mac n’ cheese and other comfort food favorites. Inside Sojka pavilion, a colorful lights show made the afternoon an exciting and high-energy event for all.

This year’s festival brings country to the heart of Lewisburg … and, truth be told, it’s about time! Country talents Gloriana, Jack Ingram and Tyler Hilton will perform at Fall Fest and create the perfect atmosphere for a laid-back afternoon. Along with listening to these performers, students can ride a Ferris Wheel (right on Sojka lawn!), enjoy delicious turkey legs and other country-themed cuisine, take an old-tyme Western photo with friends or try their hand at many different country-themed activities. So get on your boots, tie that bandana around your head and head to Sojka lawn on Saturday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. for a festival you won’t want to miss!
