Welcome Back Festival
The Welcome Back Festival is generally held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. on the first Monday in August after classes begin, on College Avenue. More than 60 local businesses and university organizations have tables at the festival with samples and prizes that can be exchanged for tickets. Tickets can be purchased for 50 cents each, with proceeds going to the Student Alumni Council Endowment Fund, which helps fund scholarships. Admission to the festival is free and open to the public. The Clemson Rally Cats, the Tiger mascot, the cheerleaders, Clemson student-athletes and other special guests will provide entertainment on the stage, and disc jockeys from radio station Hot 98.1 will play music. Clemson University President James F. Barker and Clemson Mayor Larry Abernathy will also be on-hand to welcome the crowd. The Welcome Back Festival is sponsored by the Clemson Student Alumni Council and Clemson Alumni Association with support from the city of Clemson and area businesses.
