Virginia Tech®home


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 going virtual!

To safely accommodate as many student organizations and attendees as possible, Gobblerfest is going to be offered as a virtual fair in GobblerConnect on September 4th from 4 pm – 6 pm. We know how integral this event is to help both new and returning students get connected at Virginia Tech, and are excited to have the tools at our disposal to still make that happen during this unique semester. 

As part of this virtual experience, attendees will be able to learn about the wide variety of student organizations on campus and connect with them in real time. Organizations will be able to be filtered by different categories to allow for easier navigation. Attendees can simply RSVP to the virtual fair and login to GobblerConnect during the event to get started. A full list of participating organizations will be available when sign-ups are complete!

Only currently registered student organizations are eligible to showcase in this year’s virtual Gobblerfest. Participating organizations can host live Zoom meetings during the event to engage potential new members, allow students to RSVP to upcoming information sessions, and upload videos and photos of their organization doing what it does best. Sign-ups to participate will occur the week of August 17th and eligible organizations will receive information on how to sign-up soon.

In the weeks leading up to Gobblerfest, we will provide tips for participating organizations on how to update their GobblerConnect profiles, develop helpful information for prospective members, and host effective Zoom meetings during the event.

Gobblerfest isn’t the only option for getting connected to student organizations. More information is to come about additional opportunities for organizations to do in-person outreach and for interested students to meet organizations in a safer, smaller, in-person format in September.

As we begin this academic year, we encourage everyone to think about connecting with student organizations as an on-going journey that will absolutely be different but no less important than any other academic year!

Attendees will log in to GobblerConnect during the virtual fair and go to the event page for Gobblerfest, which will also be listed on the home page of GobblerConnect. During the event, participating organizations will show up as individual tiles that will include their live Zoom session (if applicable), a short description of the organization and how to join, as well as a link to their profile page. On their profile page, you’ll be able to find pictures and videos they’ve uploaded, upcoming events like information sessions, and contact information to ask additional questions.   You can also search within the event or filter the tiles by categories to narrow the results you’re browsing.

Here is a list of the different categories and descriptions of those categories. These are the same categories you can use to filter your searches on GobblerConnect prior to attending Gobblerfest to determine which organization you want to plan to talk to.

Virginia Tech is home more than 55 inter/nationally affiliated chapters within the fraternity and sorority community. Four governing councils, the Interfraternity Council (IFC), the National Pan-Hellenic Council (NPHC), the Pan-Hellenic Collegiate Council (NPC), United Council of Fraternities & Sororities (UCFS) coordinate all Greek programs. Organizations must be approved through FSL prior to being classified as Greek Life.

These organizations provide opportunities for members to be involved in athletic/physical activities in which Virginia Tech does not formally compete.

Religious or Spiritual

These organizations provide opportunities to explore and practice religious and spiritual beliefs.  

Service & Charity

These organizations are primary focused on volunteer service and fundraising for the local Blacksburg community, regionally, and/or internationally. Some of the organizations work in conjunction with already established agencies, such as Habitat for Humanity or United Way.

These organizations were created for students interested in learning more about technological advancements and gaining hands on design, programming, coding, or competition experience.  

There will be additional opportunities for students to connect with student organizations throughout the semester. This includes the opportunity to browse GobblerConnect pages anytime, on-going organization-specific information sessions listed on GobblerConnect, as well as a planned series of events to allow for interested students to meet organizations in safer, smaller, in-person events throughout September. The details for these in-person events are still being finalized and will be shared broadly when available.

Only currently registered student organizations are eligible to participate and will be invited to sign up via GobblerConnect during the week of August 17th. All eligible organizations will receive information on how to sign-up via GobblerConnect in the coming weeks.

Organizations are not required to participate in the virtual fair. If you decide not to participate, you will be missing out on a widely advertised opportunity that we expect to draw many new students. If you have questions or concerns about participating in the virtual event, please contact

No. While we recognize the valuable contributions local businesses provide to enhancing Gobblerfest, Student Engagement and Campus Life will focus on the core mission of the event this year: allowing Virginia Tech students to build community by connecting with campus student organizations.

It is our hope that we are able to work with local businesses and non-profit organizations again for next year’s event. However, there may still be limited opportunities to connect with students and support Gobblerfest through sponsorship. Interested businesses should email for more information.

No. While we recognize Gobblerfest is a great opportunity for departments to connect with students, Student Engagement and Campus Life will focus on the core mission of the event this year: allowing Virginia Tech students to build community by connecting with campus student organizations.
