The third annual ComMUnity Fest has bridged the gap between MU students and the Millersville community since 2019. This year’s event is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 13, beginning at 3:30 p.m. It is open to all students, faculty and staff and will be a fun opportunity to get to know local businesses and organizations.
ComMUnity Fest is an event that lets MU students learn about what the Millersville community and the Lancaster area offer. Restaurants, businesses and other organizations will gather outdoors on the Student Memorial Center promenade and share their services.
The first ComMUnity Fest in 2019 brought in about 40 different vendors, with over 500 students, faculty and staff in attendance. Last year’s event brought in 35 vendors and over 900 attendees. After taking a short hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual event will return for the third time.
There will be free food, live music, yard games, giveaways and more at the event. Vendors who have already signed up include Lancaster Cupcake, Jersey Mike’s Subs, Giant Food Stores, Tropical Smoothie Café, Sheetz and others.
Information for Vendors
ComMUnity Fest is the only opportunity for local businesses, organizations, nonprofits and vendors to market their products and services to the nearly 8,000 students, faculty and staff at MU in an organized event of this capacity. This will be an especially great opportunity to reach out to students new to the Lancaster area who may be otherwise unaware of their services.
Vendors are encouraged to bring coupons, free giveaways, product samples and information about services to distribute to students who visit their table.
Registration can be found here. Any questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, or feel free to contact the Student Memorial Center at 717-871-7059.
