2017 Fall Festival Schedule – At A Glance
This year's Fall Festival headliner is Grammy Award-winning hip-hop artist Lil Wayne. The concert will also feature Bad Mary, a modern punk band featuring Hofstra Professor David Henderson and several alumni, as well as dance music group C+C Music Factory and the U2 cover band Unforgettable Fire. We’re also excited to welcome back alumna Jamie Morris - co-host of The WALK Breakfast Club with Mark and Jamie – as our Fall Festival MC for the second year in a row.
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, Tornado, Sizzler 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. Tickets for guests MUST be purchased by October 4 through the apps on your student portal.
