Villanova Fall Fest Image

The 29th Annual Fall Festival will be held at Villanova University from November 10-12, 2017!

The Special Olympics PA Fall Festival is hosted and organized by Villanova University students and is the largest annual student-run Special Olympics event in the world.  For one weekend each year, Villanova University opens its campus up to over 1,000 athletes, 400 coaches, and 2,000 volunteers from the Villanova Student Body, surrounding community, and corporations.

The athletes who participate in the Fall Festival compete in a total of six Olympic-type sports including bocce, long distance running, power-lifting, roller skating, soccer and volleyball.  However, sporting events are just a small component of the overall weekend. 

The event requires 2,000 volunteers from the Villanova University student body, corporate organizations and the surrounding community. Spectators are encouraged to visit any of the competition venues on or near campus and cheer on athletes at Special Olympics Pennsylvania’s second largest event of the year.
