A variety of events that families can enjoy at their own pace will be held on campus during Family Weekend, Friday through Sunday, Oct. 25 to 27.

Many events are free, and some require tickets that can be purchased at the Fredonia Ticket Office in the Williams Center.

This year’s highlight is Family Weekend Feud, a game show similar to Family Feud, which will be played on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m., in the Williams Center Multipurpose Room. Families will have an opportunity to win prizes at this free event. Students are invited to accompany family members in the game or join their own friends to form teams to compete for prizes.

Family Feud, as well as a caricature artist, a magic show and a donut and cider stop, will be hosted by Spectrum Entertainment Board.

Other events include musical performances, athletic events, art gallery hours and a special night of viewing the stars in the Science Center observatory.

Campus traditions are in full swing with the Scholars Breakfast on Saturday morning in the Steele Hall Fieldhouse, hosted by the Fredonia College Foundation, by invitation only to students who have received scholarships and their guests.

“Terror in the Trees” will be staged on Friday and Saturday evenings in the campus woodlot, near the clock tower, by Fredonia Immersive Theatre. Tickets will be on sale at the ticket office.

A complete listing of events with times and locations can be found on the Family Weekend website online.
