Have fun and support Marion-Polk Food Share at Wulapalooza

The 12th annual Wulapalooza, Willamette University's free music, art and Earth festival, will be held Saturday, April 24, on Brown Field.

The festival begins at 11 a.m. with the main music stage opening at 5:30 p.m. This year's featured performers are Typhoon, Japandroids, The Dodos and "Portugal. The Man." The event will also feature performances from Willamette University Dance Team and Taiko Drummers. Throughout the day, enjoy local and student-organized bands, buy fresh food from the French and Hawai'i clubs or check out arts and crafts from campus groups.

Each year Wulapalooza includes a fundraiser for a local charitable foundation. This year the event will sponsor the Marion-Polk Food Share. The event is free, but canned food and monetary donations are welcome.

This is the festival's 12th anniversary. In the past 12 years, Wulapalooza has evolved from a small festival providing a creative outlet for students on campus into a community event that attracts internationally recognized talent.

In the event of inclement weather, the event will be moved into the Sparks Athletic Center.
