WHAT IS WULAPALOOZA?
Wulapalooza is an annual earth, art and music festival that takes place on the campus of Willamette University. Local schools, performance groups, and professional bands perform for over a thousand students and community members annually with local businesses and student groups fundraising for various charitable organizations. We are an Earth Day and community festival that yearly brings in thousands of community members and students. The 19th annual Wulapalooza festival will take place on April 29th, 2017.
WHAT DOES ADMISSION COST?
Admission to Wulapalooza is completely free to both students and the community.
The timing of this year's festival will be slightly different from previous years, and will have a "soft" opening, commencing activities at 12pm (i.e. games, student acts, booths, food, art, etc.) at the Bistro and on Brown Field. Student musical acts will begin at 1pm and continue until 5:30pm when we will open up the main stage for our headlining bands. We operate this way so that we can have it closed down by 10pm to avoid disturbing our neighbors and to allow festival goers time to travel back to their homes so that they can get a good night's sleep. As always the festival is ABSOLUTELY FREE to all attendees.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
In the past it has only mildly affected the running of the festival, the show goes on rain or shine, bring an umbrella!
HOW IT WORKS:
Daytime (12:00 PM-5:20 PM)
The first half of the festival focuses on activities, booths and student creations. These include student organizations, clubs, community groups and student musical acts of various genres. During the day there are many non-Wulapalooza sponsored activities and booths provided by various student groups.
The evening portion of the festival is mainly an awesome concert on Brown Field. See the Lineup page for more details about the bands.
