About LSU Fall Fest
LSU 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, LSU 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. LSU Fall Fest provides its community members with the opportunity to learn about different campus departments, meet new friends and classmates, enjoy free food and drinks, claim free giveaways from sponsors, and celebrate the spirit of LSU with student entertainment from the Fall Fest stage.
