Grab your co-workers and come out today for the thirty-fifth annual Fall Festival from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at TRECS. Due to weather concerns, all activities will take place inside. The event, hosted by Human Resources, is the university’s way of thanking Knoxville-area faculty, staff, and retirees for their dedication and hard work.

Transportation Services and Facilities Services are providing shuttle service from several areas of campus including UT Medical Center, the Kingston Pike Building, UT Conference Center, the Hill, and others. See the full schedule and list of all locations here (pdf). Parking will be available in the G-7 garage, across the street from the Allan Jones Aquatics Center.

This year’s event is themed Your Festival. Your Health. and will feature health and nutrition information from the UT Medical Center and other UT departments. UT’s employee insurance vendors BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, Magellan Health, and others also will be on hand. The campus’s new vision coverage provider, EyeMed, and the flexible spending program provider, PayFlex, will be available to answer questions.

Employees may participate in a variety of RecSports activities including Zorb balls, Joust, the Sports Zone, Bocce, and more.

The festival will feature favorite activities including bingo, music, giveaways from local vendors, door prizes, cake walk, and a catered lunch, courtesy of the campus Division of Finance and Administration.
