Rave: Get your cowboy boots out

Jeanette Cibelli

Country music fans better get their cowboy boots ready because Fall Fest is back again.

Fall Fest is coming back to Quinnipiac on Saturday, Sept. 27. The Student Programming Board recently announced country artists Jana Kramer, Tyler Barham, and The Henningsens will be performing. The concert will begin at 2 p.m. in South Lot on the Mount Carmel campus. Admission is free for Quinnipiac students.

This is the second annual Fall Fest hosted by SPB at QU, and it promises to be even more exciting than the first year. Last year’s Fall Fest was a big success for SPB and a lot of people came out to have a good time. Even if you don’t like country music, the environment is welcoming and has the vibe of an outdoor summer concert.

Last September, Love and Theft headlined with additional performances from Ashley Monroe and Caanan Smith. There were huge crowds last year, so be sure to get there early if you want to be close to the stage.

Many students had a great time last year and are looking forward to this year’s festivities.

“Country music is my favorite,” said Kristin Duthie, a sophomore physical therapy major. “I had a lot of fun at Love and Theft last year. Last year’s Fall Fest was amazing, and I’m really excited to go again this year.”

Even though it comes a month after classes start, Fall Fest is an awesome way to kick off the start of a new year at Quinnipiac. It’s a ton of fun to sing along and dance with your friends in the middle of the crowds.  Fall Fest also rounds out the summer perfectly, since there’s nothing that screams summer more than an outdoor concert.

SPB has done a great job planning this event and choosing a genre that appeals to so many Quinnipiac students. As an added bonus, we don’t have to pay expensive ticket prices.  Fall Fest promises to be an afternoon to remember.  There’s no reason not to go.
