The festival will kick off with a grand opening celebration from 10 a.m. to midnight on Friday, Sept. 25, including special prize giveaways, a meet-and-greet with CSU-Pueblo athletes, cheerleaders, and Wolfie from 5:30-7:30 p.m.  Participants also can enjoy the corn maze, a bonfire, hay rides, a family fun area, a bounce house, and the new Corn Cannon.

The corn maze will feature the CSU-Pueblo ThunderWolves logo to celebrate the school’s success.  

"Of course we're really proud of them, not just the Division II football championship, but really, the student-athlete citizens who make up the population of CSU-Pueblo and the faculty and the administration. They've done a lot for Pueblo, and we just wanted to honor them," said Mary Tinkcom, co-owner of Frederica Mesa Farm.

Award-winning, student operated radio station, Rev 89.5 FM, will broadcast live from the fall festival on Sept. 25, Oct. 2 and 30 from 5:30 - 8 p.m. each night.  Recently, Rev was ranked sixth in the nation among all non-commercial stations by Nielsen Media and tied for second in the Pueblo market.
