Once a year, Old Campus transforms into a food, agriculture, and music festival at the heart of Yale. Yale Hospitality hosted the annual Fall Festival outdoor celebration of fall, fun, and food on Saturday, October 15. Affectionately known as ‘Fall Fest’ for the last 13 years, the event unites student communities to explore great regional and culturally-inspired foods while creating lasting memories on Old Campus.

Recently named the №2 in Yelp’s ‘Top 100 in New England’ list, New Haven’s Zeneli Pizzeria made its mark at Fall Fest. The traditional Neapolitan-style pizzeria boasts freshly-made cheeses and thin-crust pizzas. The Zeneli team was on-site with fresh dough and cheese, including exciting demonstrations of fresh liuzzi mozzarella being hand-pulled throughout the event. The Smashed Potatoes featured on the menu began as seeds in the Netherlands through a partnership with Netherlands-based potato seed company HZPC. In line with nutritious and sustainable foods which are ‘better for you and better for the planet,’ local Cecarelli’s Farm in Northford, CT has been growing special, nutrient-dense potatoes for Yale students which are tailor-made for the state’s climate and soil. This year, Jeff Scramlin, president of North American Operations for HZPC will be among the Fall Fest guests in attendance.
