Clemson highlights innovation, creativity and education at downtown Greenville’s signature food, drink and music festival

Downtown Greenville is going Solid Orange this weekend when Clemson University sponsors the Main Stage at Fall for Greenville. Three days of innovation, creativity and education get started on East Washington Street as the Clemson Main Stage welcomes campus partners and nearly a dozen bands to a party like no other.

Attendees can experience 80+ bands, 50+ food vendors, unique competitions and multiple kids’ activities all weekend long and connect with Clemson experiences all along the way. Look for Paws directing to East Washington Street and a custom, Paw-shaped tunnel guiding guests to the fun in store.

  • Friday, October 14: CU-ICAR, the definition of partnership between Clemson University and Greenville, will showcase innovation with the student-built, 180 mph driverless Indy car, highlighting LiDAR technology to show how lasers can map the world around them and creating instant collectibles by engraving Clemson coasters right before your eyes.

  • Saturday, October 15: The University’s famous ’55 Exchange ice cream shop invites Greenville to become ice cream scientists by creating a unique flavor specific to Fall for Greenville. Attendees can submit a flavor recipe by picking a base flavor, fun color, and sweet or savory add-ins and swirls that could become the ’55 Exchange signature flavor for the event. Learn about making and packaging ice cream, and whoever’s flavor is chosen could be making it right beside the experts at Clemson.

Associate Professor David Coyle gives Fall for Greenville a glimpse at invasive bugs, plants and trees that could be harmful and what to do about them.

Each day, at least three bands will perform on the Clemson Main Stage starting at 5 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Food, drink, games and activities will be available, and the University’s own Experience Clemson store will be open throughout the event at ONE Main Plaza, 1 N. Main St.
