2022 U-Fest

U-Fest Promotional Graphic

Welcome! The Third Annual U-Fest is slated to take place on Friday, Aug. 5, from 4:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Walker Johnston Softball Diamonds. U-Fest is a fun, festive, family-friendly event featuring food trucks, bounce houses, beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), and live music performed by Faculty Lounge. Entry fee is $10 for adults and $3 for individuals age 13-18. Children 12 and younger will receive free entrance. Entrance fee will include one drink ticket.

All proceeds and sponsorship funds will be used to cover the facility rental, pay for the band and remaining funds will be for student scholarships and classroom grants. At last year’s U-Fest, roughly $5,000 was raised as part of the $16,000 awarded for classroom grants for Urbandale educators and $26,000 for scholarships for Urbandale students.

“We are looking forward to hosting another festive U-Fest event in support of our mission to enhance educational opportunities for Urbandale Community School District students, teachers and staff,” said Meribeth Haynes, president of the Urbandale Education Foundation and co-chair of Urbandale Alumni Association. “U-Fest is a great opportunity for the community to enjoy a casual social environment together and alumni to reconnect.”
