The 15th annual Redbird Fan Fair will take place Saturday, August 17, at Hancock Stadium, where patrons will have the opportunity to enjoy the Redbird football scrimmage, carnival games, prizes, and music.

All events are open to the public and serve as the official kickoff of the 2019 fall athletics season. Free parking will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis in lots surrounding Hancock Stadium.

The Fan Fair will kick off the day’s events on the concourse at Hancock Stadium at 2:30 p.m. Student-athletes and coaches from Illinois State’s 19 varsity sports teams will be on hand at the Fan Fair, assisting in the various games. They will interact with the fans and will be signing autographs on a limited basis. Additional activities include inflatable games provided by Fun on the Run and a climbing wall provided by Upper Limits.

Reggie’s Kids Club T-shirts will NOT be distributed at Fan Fair as in years past, but instead will be given out to RKC members prior to the Illinois State volleyball contest against Illinois on September 13 at 7 p.m. Admission for Redbird volleyball games is FREE for all Reggie’s Kids Club members.

Redbird Fan Fair will lead right into the Red/White football scrimmage, which kicks off at 4 p.m. at Hancock. Find out more about Redbird Fan Fair.
