About Fall Fest

Fall Fest is a university tradition that began in 1994 as the Chancellor’s official “welcome” for new students, faculty, and staff and a “welcome back” for returning members of the University family. The event was held in the LSU Quadrangle for the first twenty years.

Today, Fall Fest is an event where students, faculty, and staff can come together on the LSU Parade Ground to celebrate being a part of the LSU community. Fall Fest is an opportunity to learn about different campus departments, meet new friends and classmates, enjoy free food and drinks, claim free giveaways, and celebrate the spirit of LSU with student entertainment from the Fall Fest stage.

Students can learn about LSU services and resources and browse dozens of student organizations, with the ability to join some on the spot!

Fall Fest is free and open to LSU students, faculty, staff, and prospective students and families participating in Kickoff LSU and LSU Family Weekend.

Tickets are not required, but everyone should bring their Tiger Card to obtain food items.
