We welcome all families to participate in Family Weekend 2019 on September 20-22. It will be a weekend full of fun, food, and tradition! The Crimson Tide will take on the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles at Bryant Denny Stadium on Saturday.
Family Weekend is a “Choose Your Own Adventure” weekend with three main goals for UA families:
During Family Weekend, there will be plenty of opportunities to enjoy time with your student and achieve those goals as a family. Take a look at the Family Weekend Confirmation-2018 for helpful details on what Family Weekend has looked like in the past!
The Family Weekend registration fee is $25 for UA students and $35 for family members and includes:
Families will experience an evening in downtown Tuscaloosa with Parent & Family Programs. This event will include live entertainment in the beautiful Government Plaza and the option to purchase food from local restaurants and food truck vendors. This event is open to the Tuscaloosa community and is not a ticketed event. Present the ticket from your Check-In packet for a free picnic blanket (blankets are 1 per family to the first 500 families; only available at the Kickoff)! This event is co-sponsored by Tuscaloosa Tourism & Sports. Government Plaza Address: 2106 6th Street Tuscaloosa, AL 35401
Join Parent & Family Programs for a tailgate 3 hours prior to kickoff with food, goodies, and Crimson Tide tradition and pride! Look for the balloon towers and Tailgate signage!
Enjoy brunch, hosted by Bama Dining, with your UA family at one of our amazing campus dining locations, Lakeside Dining Hall. A great way to cap off your weekend on campus! Students will use a meal swipe and guests will use their wristband for admission.
Family Weekend T-Shirts are NOT included in registration. See below for details.
A la carte ticket options are available for the following events:
Women and Gender Resource Center Annual Chocolate Festival (Friday) $8 Note that these tickets are first come, first served and tend to sell quickly based on limited supplies.
Brunch: admission for those who haven’t registered can be purchased at the door.
Nothing will be available for purchase at Check-In.
Family Weekend tickets are available for purchase through an outside vendor. View the T-shirt options. T-shirts will be mailed directly to the address that you enter at check-out. View the T-shirt design.
For every Family Weekend registration, you are eligible to purchase one football ticket, on a first-come, first-served basis. Note that your Family Weekend registration purchase does not include your football tickets, but simply makes you eligible to purchase a football ticket on a separate transaction.
Note about football game tickets for UA Students: Student tickets for the football games are purchased and distributed online and are available on your student’s Action Card. If your student purchased Package D (freshmen) or Full Package or Package B (transfer and returning students), they should already have a ticket in the student section for the football game. Please check with your student to see if they have a ticket to the football game during Family Weekend. If your student does not have a ticket to the game and wants to sit with you in the stadium, you will need to register them for Family Weekend in order to make them eligible for a football ticket. This also applies if the student already has a ticket in a different section but wants to sit with you at the game.
After you make your Family Weekend purchase, visit our Football Tickets page for information on purchasing your game tickets. With any questions regarding football ticket purchases, contact the Athletic Ticket Office at 1-877-TIDETIX.
