See you at Rocketfest! The University of Toledo’s Campus Activities and Programming and Inter-Fraternity Council will host RocketFest Thursday, April 5, from 7 to 10 p.m. in lot by Rocket Hall.

The event will include live music performances from DJ Sharkbait and three student bands: Chloe and the Steel Strings, Ice Cream Militia and homegrownups.

Food truck vendors will include Jimmy G’s BBQ, Rosie Rolling Chef and Jeanie’s Comfort Cuisine. Food coupons will be provided for UT students.

The event will serve as a study break to de-stress students from upcoming project deadlines and final exams. In addition, it will welcome spring and promote the budding talents of UT musicians.

“It is a great opportunity to connect with communities and strengthen the on-campus involvement,” said Aanchal Senapati, director of live events and entertainment with Campus Activities and Programing. “It will instill a sense of community pride.”

There also will be ticket giveaways for concerts by Sam Smith and Kendrick Lamar. In addition, tickets will be given out for Cedar Point, Bonaroo Music Festival, Faster Horses Music Festival and the 16th Edition Number Fest.

Started by Campus Activities and Programming and the Inter-Fraternity Council, the RocketFest also is co-sponsored by Coca-Cola.

“This event builds new strategic partnerships between Campus Activities and Programming and the Inter-Fraternity Council to build a more collaborative UT community,” said Doryin Thames, vice president of operations for the Inter-Fraternity Council. “It is to provide a great time for everyone.”

The event is free for students and community members; entry wristbands will be given at the registration table.

If the weather doesn’t cooperate, the event will be moved into the Thompson Student Auditorium.
