Penn State Brandywine will host its annual, free fall festival known as Penn State Day on Saturday, Oct. 16.

The carnival-themed event will feature a 5K "Dash and Walk" around the campus sponsored by the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce (10 a.m. start, 8 a.m. registration, $25 registration fee) and a Penn State Brandywine soccer game (1 p.m.).

From 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., festival-goers will vote on the best dressed Penn Stater, watch their tots race to the finish line in the Toddler Trot, make funny T-shirts, get cheesy in the photo booth, jam out to live music and munch on the much-loved grilled stickies and other yummy fall-flavored foods on the campus lawn.

For high schoolers considering college at Penn State Brandywine, there will be a morning “Get to Know Us Program” from 10 a.m. to noon. Admissions staff will discuss what it takes to get accepted. Attendees will explore the many opportunities for students on campus, take part in an application workshop explaining what to do when it's time to apply and tour of the campus through the eyes of the students.

All events will be held rain or shine.
