Due to wet conditions Family Weekend parking is located on east campus near the intersection of Foothills Parkway and Colorado.  A free  shuttle will run between this parking location and the University Memorial Center, location of Family Weekend headquarters in UMC room 235.  Your parking pass will be honored at this location.  Due to wet turf, Friday’s Run Ralphie Run has been cancelled.  Due to snow on the course, the golf tournament has been cancelled and all fees including lunch will be refunded.  All other events are still on schedule as of 7:30 AM Friday, October 4th.  Because we are away from the office and on-site, please come to registration headquarters in the UMC room 235 to have any questions answered.

Kick-off for the CU-Oregon football game is scheduled for 4:00 pm (Mountain Time).  The Family Weekend Pre-game will begin at 1:30 pm until 3:00 pm. *** CLICK HERE for the 2013 Family Weekend itinerary in .pdf.***

We invite you to join other CU-Boulder parents and families for a special weekend on campus during one of Boulder’s most beautiful seasons. This annual fall event provides an opportunity for you to visit your student’s campus home, talk with university faculty and staff, attend classes and presentations, tour the campus and Boulder, cheer the Colorado Buffaloes to a Pac-12 football victory over the Oregon Ducks, and meet other CU-Boulder families.

Family Weekend is a self-supporting event hosted by the Office of Parent Relations and the CU Parents Association. The Family Weekend registration fee is $55 per family. This fee covers administrative costs and gives you access to specially priced football tickets, presentations, tours, three-day recreation center passes, free parking on Friday, Friday dinner in a dining hall for all registered members of your family/party, and informational materials for your family. It also gives you the opportunity to participate in special Family Weekend events that have additional charges associated with them—the Friday golf tournament, the Friday post-Stampede reception, the Saturday pre-game, and the Sunday fun run/walk.

Once you have perused this website and read about Family Weekend, you can register and purchase tickets for events, including the football game, on this website.
