Festival Events

The Festival’s Host, UNCSA, has been closely monitoring the inclement weather as a result of Hurricane Ian. Out of an abundance of caution, UNCSA will postpone the start times for all campus events. Festival events will start at noon Saturday. Updated competition times will be forwarded later today.
