RecFest 2023 – August 19th

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 19th, 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.

This year’s theme will revolve around the roaring 20’s and we look forward to having you as a vendor at the 2023 RecFest event; reserve your space today as one of our vendors or sponsors.
