Fall Fest

The Auraria Campus is once again gearing up for our annual Fall Fest sponsored by CU Denver Office of Events and Partnerships, MSU Denver Office of Student Activities, and the Community College of Denver Student Life. During each day of the two-day event, student organizations and campus departments promote their organizations while nonprofit and for-profit vendors invite the campus community to learn more about the products and services they provide.  We look forward to bringing your favorite food trucks back to campus while also showcasing new and exciting food vendors from all over the state.

Our student population exceeds 40,000 students, who commute daily to the campus. This event is a perfect opportunity to promote and advertise your organization or services to our students, faculty, and staff.
