This year marks the beginning of Texas Tech University's Autumn Festival, open to the public and appropriate for all ages.
The festival is from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday (Nov. 8) on campus at Memorial Circle and the Engineering Key. The festival will feature live, local music, a farmer's market, dance performances and a chef's demonstration stage.
“We are excited to bring the first Autumn Festival to the Texas Tech and Lubbock communities,” said Texas Tech President M. Duane Nellis. “This event is perfect for a family outing and for all ages to enjoy. With the local vendors, music and food, we hope to continue to strengthen the bond between the university and local community and also familiarize students with the Lubbock and South Plains area arts scene.”
Some products featured will be art of all different styles – oil, watercolor, ceramics, clay, mosaics – photography, woodworking, jewelry, handmade soaps and bath accessories, repurposed furniture and items, just to name a few.
Local vendors who provide wares, food or art are invited to display and sell their works while dancers and Texas musicians provide entertainment. Vendors must apply and pay a $25 registration fee for the festival by Friday (Oct. 24). Applicants will be notified regarding their acceptance by Wednesday (Oct. 29).
Each event will take place at the Black Box Laboratory Theatre, the main stage (West Memorial Circle) and/or the songwriter stage (North Engineering Key).
The Office of the President is committed to enhancing Texas Tech University's presence as a top tier national
public research university through efforts that promote even greater levels of student
success, academic quality and reputation, research and creative activities, and outreach
