City Fest: Brings Students and Business together Over the past thirteen years, City Fest has provided businesses the opportunity to market their products and/or services to EKU students, faculty, staff and the entire community. City Fest is the only time businesses are given the opportunity to directly market to students on EKU’s campus. Hosted by the Richmond Chamber of Commerce and EKU Conferencing and Events, City Fest takes place in the heart of EKU’s campus on University Drive. If you have been involved in City Fest in the past, you know what a great marketing opportunity it is; if you have not, you do not want to miss this yearly opportunity! We would like to say thank you to everyone who made City Fest 2017 such a huge success!
