The annual kick off festival hosted by Student Activities has developed over the years into an evening full of entertainment. Hosting a variety of carnival rides & games with local food vendors offering a taste of Lynchburg and Central Virginia, we are glad to give you this event for free. In this friendly atmosphere we are pleased to introduce Liberty departments and student-led clubs to meet the incoming and returning students with information and giveaways! Just when you think you've had enough, Student Activities gives you a free concert with national recording artists and a firework show to end the night! It's an evening you won't want to miss. To see more details, check out the information below for times and artists.

JOHNNYSWIM is a Los Angeles-based duo composed of Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez. The two began writing and singing together in the spring of 2006 and found that their similar influences of folk, soul, and rock blended together lusciously. Nashville newspaper "the Tennesean" describes JOHNNYSWIM as ,"A mix of Lauryn Hill and John Mayer." The two bring their voices together for dramatic, emotional pop songs that leave a deep impression.

Drew Holcomb is a Tennessee-born, duck hunting, 1st edition book collecting, golf playing Eagle Scout with a Masters degree in Divinity from Scotland’s University of St Andrews. Medicine, the follow-up to Drew's critically acclaimed 2013 album Good Light features more of the emotionally riveting performances one expects from the singer/songwriter.
