Steeped in Sun Devil spirit and filled with activities for students, families and the entire ASU community, the annual fall tradition of Family Weekend will take place Friday through Sunday, Oct. 13–15.

With three days of activities wrapped around ASU’s home football game against the Washington Huskies, Family Weekend 2017 will feature something for everyone, including Sun Devils and their families, younger siblings, non-traditional and graduate students, faculty, staff and alumni.

Registration is available on the Family Weekend website for all events, including the game-day Signature Barbecue and Devils on Mill block party, Sparky’s Spirit Hike up “A” Mountain, academic college activities and much more. New events are being added each week, such as behind-the-scenes campus tours and the annual Mill Madness event to showcase Sun Devil Basketball.

Most of the events are free, but many require an RSVP to attend. Check out the Family Weekend website for schedule details and to register. If you have additional questions, email them to
