Yardfest Countdown: Yardfest Through the Years

Yardfest is almost here—count down with us! Check out our guides to Kid Cudi, Parick Park, and Wale, then watch for more Yardfest features to come. Tonight, we present to you the history of Yardfest at Harvard. For the past sixteen years, Yardfest has wrestled rainy days, low attendance, and little funding to retain its place as the College’s spring pep event. Yardfest, previously known as Springfest, began in 1994 under the leadership of the Undergraduate Council as a way of bringing together the undergraduate community—and as a way for the UC to rally from a botched concert that cost $20,000 earlier that year.
