Fall Festival


This year’s Fall Festival weekend begins with the Talent showcase on Friday, October 1. Saturday begins with Pride Expo, where students creatively depict this year’s theme "USA Roadtrips”. At 2:00pm, the Fall Festival concert and carnival will open. At the carnival there will be rides, photo booths, food vendors, and games. During the event, Hofstra's Fall Festival Royalty will be announced on stage. The evening will end with fireworks by Grucci on the field!

This year's Fall Festival Concert and Carnival welcomes Hofstra students' guests. Guests are friends of students who are neither their family members nor other Hofstra students. As with all university events, the guests are the responsibility of their host students and are welcomed at a 1:1 ratio, meaning each student can bring one guest. Tickets for guests MUST be purchased by September 29 through your student portal. Guest tickets must be purchased by September 29, and guests must pick up their wristband 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (door closes at 5 p.m.) on October 2 in the Multi-Purpose Room, accompanied by their Hofstra student host.

Your student ticket is FREE - do not purchase a ticket for yourself.
