RecFest 2021 “Marshall Gras”

Dear Colleagues,

You are invited to join the Marshall Recreation Center for the premier event of the year. RecFest is an opportunity to showcase your business or organization to not only Marshall Students, but to the entire Marshall community. This year’s event will take place on Saturday, August 21st, from 12-3pm on the gym courts of the Rec Center.

RecFest is the perfect place to connect and collaborate with Huntington and to expose your brand to thousands of incoming Marshall Students.

I hope you can join us, as we are excited for the return of RecFest this year, 2020 put a hold on the event but we are ready for this year’s event and hope to come back better than ever! This year’s theme will revolve around Mardi Gras or shall I say “Marshall Gras”, so be ready for a party! We look forward to having you as a vendor at the 2021 RecFest event; reserve your space today as one of our vendors or sponsors.

Regards,

Kayla Dodd
Assistant Director of Marketing & Membership
