Palousafest is the premier welcome back event on campus. Each year 3,000 to 5,000 new students, returning students, and community members attend this street fair to browse hundreds of student organizations, campus departments, and local businesses and non-profits and find out how to get involved with the Palouse community. Stick around for an outdoor screening of Captain Marvel at nightfall.
