WKU Fan Fest brings excitement for sports fans

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Topper Fans, the countdown is finally over! Fan Fest is officially back Saturday!

After taking a three-year hiatus due to COVID, Fan Fest is returning from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. tomorrow on South Lawn on WKU’s campus.

Fans will have the chance to meet and get autographs from football, volleyball and soccer student-athletes. The event is followed by a free volleyball scrimmage in Diddle Arena on their new floor.

And there’s fun for all ages, with inflatables, face paint, balloon artists, yard games and more. They will also be collecting donations for flood victims in eastern Kentucky.

“We are so excited to have the community back out here with our student athletes. We haven’t been fully able to execute this event since 2019 so being able to see the community again and have our student athletes interact with the kiddos and families is going to be so special,” said Blake Mayfield, assistant director of marketing at WKU.
