BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) - WKU Athletics is excited to announce the return of Fan Fest on Saturday, August 13, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the WKU South Lawn.

The WKU Football, Volleyball and Soccer teams will all participate in the event, along with Big Red and the WKU Cheer and Dance teams. Fans can receive autographs and interact with the student-athletes from each team throughout the day.

In addition to meeting WKU’s student-athletes, fans can enjoy family fun for all ages with activities such as inflatables, face paint, balloon artists, yard games and more. The first 500 fans will receive a free Tops t-shirt and will have the first opportunity to collect the team posters for football, volleyball and soccer.

Fan Fest will feature a live radio show with Brad Klein, the new voice of the WKU Women’s Basketball and Volleyball. Additionally, fans will be able to meet with a WKU ticket office representative to discuss ticket options for the 2022 football and volleyball seasons.

Parking and admission for Fan Fest are both free. Fans can park in both parking garages around Diddle Arena. In the event of poor weather, Fan Fest will be moved indoors to Diddle Arena.
