Fall Family Events and Football

Logo for Family Weekend, University of Wisconsin–Madison, with Bucky

Family Weekend: October 8–10, 2021

We look forward to seeing you this fall, either in-person or virtually, at Family Weekend, UW–Madison’s signature event for parents and families.

Family Weekend gives the whole family, from grandparents to siblings, a chance to see UW–Madison through the eyes of your Badger. The weekend will include both in-person and virtual events such as photo opportunities with Bucky, student entertainment, engaging sessions with campus experts, athletics opportunities, and more. Please note that a home football game is not part of Family Weekend.

Family Weekend registration will open in late August at parent.wisc.edu/parent-events/family-weekend/
