Fan Fest Scheduled for August 13


Appalachian State University football’s annual Fan Fest is set for Saturday, Aug. 13 at Kidd Brewer Stadium. We are excited to announce this year’s edition of Fan Fest will be slightly different than in years past. The changing format will be more interactive for children to participate and interact in limited instruction with student-athletes from the football team and fall olympic sports teams.

Fan Fest begins at 5:30 p.m. with an EXCLUSIVE half-hour window for members of the Junior Mountaineer Kids Club and their parents to get autographs with their favorite Appalachian State football student-athletes and coaches before the gates open for the general public.

The gates open for the general public at 6 p.m. and student-athletes and coaches will be available for autographs until 7 p.m.

The Junior Mountaineer Kids Club is the official club for App State fans in eighth grade or younger. In addition to the exclusive early admission to Fan Fest, Junior Mountaineer Kids Club members also receive:

  • membership pack with a FREE Junior Mountaineer Kids Club t-shirt, official membership credential and special gift
  • FREE admission to Sept. 10 football home opener versus Old Dominion and exclusive tailgate!
  • FREE admission to ALL other Appalachian State home athletic events, including men’s and women’s basketball and baseball
  • And so much more!

Annual membership for the Junior Mountaineer Kids Club costs just $35 per child – additional JMKC members in the same family are $30. Pre-registrations will be taken until Wednesday, August 10 at 5 p.m. All JMKC members will be able to pick up their membership packet the day of Fan Fest and will be able to register for JMKC on site.
