The 49th annual Vintage Days will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday in and around the newly opened Lynda and Stewart Resnick Student Union at Fresno State.

Admission to Vintage Days is free and parking is not enforced. Visitors are encouraged to park in lots off Maple and Shaw avenues, where there will be a shuttle for attendees needing accommodations.

The student-planned festival attracts tens of thousands of attendees to Fresno State each year for a weekend of food, games, beverages, live performances, shopping, and other activities.

This year, the event will be held in a different location on campus while other parts of campus are under construction for the replacement of the Central Utility Plant.

Food, Fun and Games

Student clubs and organizations will host over a dozen food booths alongside vendors such as Country Fair Cinnamon Rolls, FURY Hot Chicken, Texas Twister Drinks, A Taste of Paradise Hawaiian Shaved Ice, Old Tyme Kettle Korn and Dutch Bros Coffee. Adults 21 and over can enjoy Fresno State wine and adult beverages in the Beer and Wine Garden. Proceeds benefit various student and campus organizations.

Attendees can uncover the perfect gift item or accessory in the Crafts Faire, a marketplace of over 100 booths featuring unique, handcrafted goods from a wide array of artisans.

Guests can also visit game booths hosted by student organizations and the Blue Shell Gaming Arena located in the Ruiz Ballroom of the Resnick Student Union, featuring vendors with pop culture memorabilia, artwork, photo opportunities with cosplay characters, and an exhibit on the history of video games.

Unlimited console gaming and the Mario Kart Live race track will be available with a $12 gaming wristband. Gaming tournaments are scheduled throughout the weekend and require a wristband and $10 registration per tournament. The schedule of the gaming tournaments will be available at fresnostate.edu/vintagedays.

Children can enjoy free arts and crafts in the Kids Zone. A $20 wristband will provide access to inflatables, pony rides, a rock climbing wall, a petting zoo and a reptile exhibit, as well as the Blue Shell Gaming Arena. The popular trackless train ride returns this year, and Story Time by Jumpstart will feature children’s books being read aloud throughout the weekend.

Over 20 musicians, bands, DJs, dancers and other local talent will entertain from the concert stage all weekend.

Fundraiser for Student Groups

Vintage Days is an annual festival planned by students that began in 1975. Today, the festivities span three days and welcome over 30,000 attendees each year. The admission-free event offers student organizations the largest fundraising opportunity on campus and invites community members and alumni to experience a variety of entertainment and dining options on the Fresno State campus.
