Villanova's Special Olympics Fall Festival is the largest annual student run Special Olympic event in the world. And this is your invitation to show your support by cheering on the athletes at competition venues on or near the campus.

November 10th through the 12th, Villanova will hold its 29th Annual Fall Festival -- welcoming over 1,000 athletes, 400 coaches, and 2,000 volunteers from the student body, the surrounding community, and local 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. 
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.

Come to the Pavilion Friday evening for the inspiring Opening Ceremonies, and be sure to visit the Quad on Saturday and Sunday, as it is transformed into Olympic Town - a street festival of entertainment for the athletes and families.
