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 an inter-conference football victory over the University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors, 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 $60 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 Pre-Stampede Round-Up (reception) at the Hotel Boulderado, the Saturday Family Weekend Pre-Game , and the Sunday Buffalo Family Stampede 5K Fun Run/Walk.

Once you have perused this website and read about Family Weekend 2014, you can register and purchase tickets for events, including the football game, on this website. For questions related to your registration, call the CU Athletic Ticket Office at 303-492-8337 or toll free at (800) 872-8337 or email at cutix@colorado.edu.
