To celebrate the 25th anniversary of University Fest this year, we’re making it even more memorable. Make sure you visit the green-and-white tent for free giveaways and free raffle tickets for prizes, such as Beats wireless headphones, a Fitbit Charge 2 and many others, including one big prize. This year also features two new attractions: a stunt jump for the truly brave and a Zorb Ball track.

It's free

Ever hear, “The best things in life are free”? Enough said!
