Fall Festival


This year’s Fall Festival weekend begins with the Pride Expo, where students creatively depict this year’s theme "Favorite Streaming and Television Series”. At 2:00pm the Fall Festival concert and carnival will open. The line up for this year’s concert includes Bad Mary, a cover band starring Hofstra alumni and faculty David Henderson, the well-known U2 cover band Unforgettable Fire, the one and only C+C Music Factory, and a headliner that will be announced shortly! At the carnival we will have rides, photo booths, food vendors, and games. At the event we will also announce Hofstra's Fall Festival Royalty and then end the concert with fireworks by Grucci on the field!

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. Tickets for guests MUST be purchased by October 5 through your student portal.

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

For your family members, please purchase Family Weekend Registration and concert/carnival tickets at www.hofstra.edu/FW (click on Register Here). There is no limit on the number of family members.

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