Free Entertainment and Celebrity Performances Lined Up for CIAA Toyota Fan Fest and Super Saturday
Posted By: Elynor Moss on February 05, 2018

Performances and engaging activities slated for tournament events at Charlotte Convention Center


Two of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA) Basketball Tournament’s staple events—Fan Fest and Super Saturday—will return for its alumni, fans and community members to enjoy for FREE. Each event will entail celebrity performances, meet and greets, as well as giveaways, interactive games and activities for all ages.

CIAA Toyota Fan Fest will be held on Friday, Mar. 2 and Saturday, Mar. 3 from Noon to 8 p.m. CIAA Super Saturday will be held on Mar. 2 from 8:30 a.m. to Noon. Both events will take place at the Charlotte Convention Center.

Friday’s Fan Fest will feature a performance by R&B group Bell Biv DeVoe, the Divas of Olive Branch Majorette Team; CIAA Big Day party with DJ Kool and three DJs spinning records, and a special celebrity guest appearance, sponsor activations from companies like Toyota, Coke, Food Lion, Nationwide, the US Army, Lowe’s Home Improvement, T-Mobile, the U.S. Marine Corp, the U.S. Coast Guard and many more.

Slated for Saturday’s Fan Fest will be performances by rappers Dave East, DJ Luke Nasty, and R&B group Volume 4; a sneaker showcase; as well as hip-hop dance troupe Fuzion Force, and Charlotte Ultimate Cheer. On both days, there will be giveaways, games and activities at various sponsor booths and over 40 vendors for fans to check out.

Super Saturday attendees can look forward to performances by rappers Ayo & Teo, as well as the Phi Beta Sigma Step Team from Livingstone College and UFIT HS Cheer Champion; watch the CIAA Cheerleading Exhibition; and see who will be crowned Queen during the 2018 Food Lion Miss CIAA competition.

“Outside of the competitive action on the basketball court, CIAA Toyota Fan Fest and Super Saturday are two of the most exciting events during tournament week,” said Commissioner Jacqie McWilliams. “Our alumni, fans and community members can enjoy great entertainment, win giveaways, play interactive games, meet celebrities and more–all for free, and all in one place–the Charlotte Convention Center.”
