Gobblerfest is an annual festival intended to engage students in campus activities and connect with the surrounding community while inspiring curiosity, civility and self-understanding. Gobblerfest was conceived in the fall of 2008 as a festival welcoming people to the Blacksburg community. This free event has become a highlight of the start of the academic year.
Gobblerfest is an excellent way for students to meet each other, explore common interests, and become a part of the Virginia Tech community, all in a healthy, alcohol-free setting. Student organizations, businesses, non-profit organizations, and Virginia Tech departments will offer food, games, free giveaways, and volunteer service information at booths around the Virginia Tech Drillfield. The day's schedule will also include a variety of entertainment.
Welcome Week culminates with Gobblerfest. Join us September 6, 2019 from 4-7pm on the Drillfield to explore all Virginia Tech has to offer!
