The 2013 Best Fest was the 35th annual and took place in front of the Convocation Center on Friday, October 25th, 2013. Due to the Homecoming events also being that week, Best Fest was merged with Golf Cart Parade so that the two events would not be competing against each other. Booths were set up in the unpaved areas just to the east and west of the convo entrance and also in the parking lot right in front. The theme was "Rowdy in Runnerland", a take off of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and the event featured the Roadrunner Rampage, the fireworks show that usually accompanies Golf Cart Parade.

Josh Gracin was the musical guest. Approximate schedule for the event a 7:00 concert, 7:30 parade, and 8:45 spirit rally.[1]
