The Special Olympics Pennsylvania Fall Festival is unlike any other event at Villanova.  With great reason, athletes, volunteers, and students alike regularly remark that Fall Festival is their favorite weekend of the year.  Nothing else unites our campus with as much enthusiasm, and nothing makes Villanova as wonderful as experiencing the athletes’ excitement, sportsmanship, and joy.”
