The kick off to Vintage Days at Fresno State

Local News

Vintage Days is an annual event held at Fresno State. But, this year student volunteers say they are going bigger by adding more food vendors and more student run carnival games. 

Bryna De Fede is the Student Director for Fresno State Vintage Days. She says every year thousands come out and get in on all of the action. 

“It’s all student run and planned and we expect 50 thousand people every year,” says De Fede. 

Vintage Days is home to a lot of fun vendors. Like Brian Gleser with Harmony Tie-Dyes. He says they have been coming to Vintage Days for years. 

“It not only supports our family but all the other vendors here are small family businesses,” says Gleser. “We all make our own stuff. So, it absolutely supports us.”

The three day event is what some call an end of the year festival. Where students from all over come to hang out. 

Katherine Garcia is a Fresno State Student. She says having Vintage Days at the end of April is a great idea. 

“Well the fact that it’s open to all students just makes the campus seem more welcoming in the first place,” says Garcia. “It is a lot more fun with finals coming up you know you remember all of the good times that you can have.”

Vintage Days will be open this Saturday from 10 a.m. till 6 p.m. and then again on Sunday from 10 a.m. till 5 p.m. 

It is completely free to attend and parents can get their kids a wristband to go on the jump houses and visit the petting zoo.
