TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Amazing performances, incredible food and exciting activities. The Experience Tallahassee Festival brought local colleges and organizations together to provide a unique event that features the best of Tallahassee on Saturday.

"We anticipate a 1,000 to 1,500 people through the course of the day and it's open to the community, it's open to the students of the three universities so we're looking to many people getting involved and interconnecting," said Florida State University Director of Student Activities Todd Shaver.

This annual event began three years ago. FAMU, FSU and TCC wanted to provide incoming students with an opportunity to learn about Tallahassee. Event coordinators say they try to add something new to the festival every year to display the vibrant and diverse Tallahassee community.

"We want you to know more about the city and every aspect of the city and not just enjoy our campuses but to actually go out and enjoy the community," said Florida A&M University Director of Student Activities Will Clemm. "It's just an opportunity to let folks know that we're all here together."

Clemm went on to say "We maybe at different campuses, we may wear different colors but we're all here together to work together and make Tallahassee great and get degrees."

After the event, there was a free screening of Wonder Woman at the Capital City Amphitheater.
