Fall Festival

Concert & Carnival

Hofstra’s annual Fall Festival Concert & Carnival brings a variety of musical artists to campus, as well bringing carnival rides, games, and food for students and family to enjoy. The concert typically features several artists, ranging from present-day to throwbacks to cover bands.

This year’s lineup features 90s cover band Reservoir Dawgs, chart topping nostalgia band 3OH!3, and welcomes Flo Rida as this year’s headliner!

All who attend the Fall Festival carnival and concert venue will be subject to increased security measures, including bag checks.

While you're enjoying the tunes, be sure to spend some time at the Fall Festival Carnival, featuring rides such as the Zipper, Gravitron, Tornado and other favorites. Immediately following the concert, Fireworks by Grucci will light up the sky with a special show!

This year, the concert and carnival will once again feature unique food vendors.

*This year's Fall Festival Concert and Carnival welcomes Hofstra students' guests. As with all university events, the guests are the responsibility of their host students and are welcomed at a 2:1 ratio, meaning each student can bring two guests. Guest tickets must be purchased by September 26, and guests must pick up their wristband by 5pm on the 28th in the Multi-Purpose Room, accompanied by their Hofstra student host.
