Riverfest is an annual concert held in the spring semester at Sewell Park.

Riverfest is hosted by Student Association for Campus Activities to provide the community with free entertainment.

Games, food, giveaways and live music are what students can look forward to at Riverfest, according to Alexandra Puryear, former pride and traditions coordinator.

“We have always had prominent artists like Ying Yang Twins, Young Joc, Gloriana, We the Kings and this past year, Bowling for Soup,” Puryear said.

Zeeba Zarei, nursing sophomore and newly chosen pride and traditions coordinator, hopes to continue making Riverfest an event students can look forward to.

“I plan to have more interactive activities to do during the week of and during Riverfest to get the student body really excited for Riverfest,” Zarei said. “We do put so much of our work and time into it, and seeing the students come out really makes all of it worth it.”

Breanna Herbert, sociology junior, said she has attended Riverfest twice while at Texas State.

“It does not disappoint,” Herbert said. “It is something every student should attend and not miss out.”
