What is Zag Fest?

Taking place on Friday, August 27 from 8am-2pm during New Student Orientation, ZagFest is designed to introduce new students to all that Spokane has to offer! At ZagFest, business and non-profits can market and make connections with their newest potential customers. This is a great opportunity to share resources and to be a part of the Gonzaga University campus and community.

Space reservations are now available

Keep in mind that Gonzaga events will be guided by a protocol created for the safety of all participants. Each Zag must do their part to make in-person events safe so that we can continue to support on-campus connections. Please continue to monitor our website for updates as we proceed with event planning for ZagFest.

The Attendees

Gonzaga University expects to have over 1300 new students joining us in the Fall of 2021. Over 80% of incoming Gonzaga students are from more than 250 miles outside of Spokane. The vast majority of these students needed information about Spokane businesses and the community as a whole.

  • Creating an interactive booth
  • Providing samples of their product
  • Distributing coupons for future sales
  • Hosting a raffle or product giveaway
