Students, alumni, family, and friends of Carthage can experience Summerfest for free!

Show your Carthage pride at Summerfest July 8. Summerfest is partnering with Carthage and other area colleges and universities for “Show Your College Pride Day” on Friday, July 8. All patrons arriving between noon and 3 p.m. wearing a Carthage shirt or hat will receive one free general admission ticket (valid for the day and time of the promotion only).

The Summerfest ticket grants patrons access to all ground stages; however, a separate ticket at an additional cost is required for admission to the American Family Insurance Amphitheater performance.

Artists headlining the festival stages on Friday, July 8 include The Black Crowes, Cordae, Jameson Rodgers, Gaelic Storm, and more. See the full lineup 

Carthage’s Office of Admissions and Office of Advancement will have a table set up at Booth 5 near the Mid Gate. Be sure to stop by for some Carthage swag items. Don’t forget to take photos at Summerfest in your Carthage gear and use #carthageviews for a chance to be featured on our social media!

No Carthage gear? No problem. Barnes & Noble at Carthage is selling T-shirts and hats at 10 percent off starting the week of June 20 for those who want to show their Carthage pride at Summerfest!
