Sacred Heart University will be hosting its annual Spring Fest on Friday, April 28 from 5-10 p.m. and Saturday, April 29 from 1-7 p.m. in the Curtis Hall lot.
Student Events Team (SET) President and junior, Molly Teeter is excited for students to come together and be a part of Spring Fest 2023.
“Students should be excited to attend this event because it is a fun and new tradition at Sacred Heart filled with food, rides, and giveaways. You won’t want to miss it!” said Teeter.
To attend this on campus event, students will have to get a wristband that will allow them to enter Spring Fest.
“We will have two table times, one on April 27 and one on April 28. Students can also get their wristbands on the day of, where they will also get a few tickets for the food trucks,” said SET Annual Events Chair and junior, Kayla Kutch.
This year they will have a variety of different food trucks that will be attending the event. Everything from classic carnival food to sweet treats exclusively for students 21 or older.
“Some of the food trucks that will be attending this year include Tipsy Cone (alcohol- infused ice cream truck), Kona Ice, Melting Truck (grilled cheese truck), Spuds Your Way (Baked Potato Truck), and OhKDog (corn dog truck),” said Teeter.
Spring Fest will also be having carnival rides and games for students to play and enjoy.
“Spring Fest will be offering many games for students to play including water games, Block Buster, Balloons, Basketball, and Speed pitch,” said Teeter.
Similar to prior years, Spring Fest will again be offering a number of different carnival attractions that students can ride and enjoy.
“I’m really excited to attend Spring Fest for the first time this year! I’m most excited for the rides they will have,” said freshman Ben Lemos.
The rides this year are mostly the same as last year, with a few more additions. This includes the Zipper, Gravitron, Hang Glider, Orbitor, the Scrambler, and a Fun House.
Spring Fest has become a new tradition at Sacred Heart University. This is one of the biggest events that SET plans for campus, and a lot of hard work and team effort goes into making it a fun event for students.
“Planning Spring Fest takes a team. From the SET side, it is working on finding what games, food trucks, and giveaways to have at the event,” said Kutch.
The SET team is just as excited to work Spring Fest this year as students are to attend it.
“As I am working the event, I am excited to see all of the SHU students as well as have fun with all of my friends. I am also excited for the giveaways and the new tradition that this event has become for the SHU community,” said Teeter.
This two-day campus event is the perfect way to take a break from school work and spend time with your friends before the semester ends.
“Spring Fest this year isn’t just for one day. Between two days, there will be food trucks, rides, games, and giveaways,” said Kutch. “This event is the best way to end the semester and take a break from studying or writing a paper. We hope to see you there!”
