FVV Fan Fest Info
A production of the Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (RACVB), the 2018 FVV Fan Fest returns to the UW Health Sports Factory at 5 p.m. Friday, June 22. As part of the Bring Your Game 2 Rockford (BYG2RKFD) campaign, the guest of honor for this second annual event is Fred VanVleet, a Rockford native and NBA star point guard for the Toronto Raptors. The Fan Fest is the Rockford area's premier community summer rec night for all ages.
The FVV Fan Fest is a multi-layered partnership experience that features a gaming lounge, live T-shirt screens, bouncy houses, agility drills, and shooting contests throughout the evening. Moreover, the evening's highlights include the Celebrity Three-Point Contest at 7 p.m., which is immediately followed by the Community Dunk Contest on the championship court. Benefiting the 501(c)3 RACVB Charitable Foundation, the FVV Fan Fest is an extension of RACVB's partnership with VanVleet, who is in his second year as the organization's official sports tourism ambassador. The face of the Fan Fest, VanVleet continues to raise his game on the court and by giving back to his hometown.
By benefiting the RACVB Charitable Foundation, all net proceeds of 2018 FVV Fan Fest will be subsequently directed to sports programs and projects in need. Please join the RACVB for a community rec night celebrating the Rockford region's sports tourism ambassador while benefiting sports programs across the region.
