Fresno State’s largest student-run event is back for its 45th anniversary this weekend.
Vintage Days at Fresno State attracts around 50,000 guests each year with three days of local food booths, games, live entertainment, a car show and a beer and wine garden.
Along with 26 different student food booths and six student game booths, this year’s festival has a new feature for students.
“The Student Zone is going to provide a place for Fresno State students with games, activities and giveaways for the students,” said Bryna De Fede, student director for Vintage Days. “We are having an activity with the Health Center that will give graduating students a chance to decorate their graduation cap.”
The car show is also celebrating its second anniversary on Sunday. All spectators are welcomed to watch for free or can register to showcase a vehicle. A non-refundable registration fee of $30 can be paid online or $35 per car at the gate the day of the show.
Nine food vendors will be present as well, including favorites such as Dutch Bros. and cinnamon rolls, according to Fede.
Behind the annual event are eight committees with 15 students total.
“I think the hardest challenge that we have faced is remembering we are students first and prioritizing,” Fede said. “Every event or team comes with their own set of obstacles, but our committee this year has tackled it all with a great attitude and have worked hard all year long.”
