Fall Family Weekend

Fall Family Weekend 2021

Welcome

Parent & Family Programs and the Auburn University Parent & Family Association Board of Directors look forward to this annual event.

Fall Family Weekend 2022 will be held in conjunction with Homecoming 2022.  At this time Auburn Athletics has not announced the homecoming game for the 2022 football season.  This announcement is historically made in March or February in the calendar year that it takes place.

 

Many campus departments and local businesses work together to make Fall Family Weekend a great event for you and your family. In addition to a tailgate hosted by Parent & Family programs, there will be many other ways for families to explore Auburn’s campus and community.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you have not received your football tickets that you purchased through the Fall Family Weekend block of seats you can contact the Auburn Ticket Office at 844.282.2010, option 1 or ticketsales@auburn.edu.  You will need to provide them the name and email used for your order.

The ticket gives you admittance to the Auburn University Parent & Family Association’s tailgate with a meal and non-alcoholic beverages. There will also be fun activities throughout the tailgate, live music, and time to meet other Auburn families. Because Fall Family Weekend is a campus-coordinated event, a portion of this cost also goes towards the marketing of Fall Family Weekend. Regardless of age, the ticket for the tailgate is $30. This helps offset the costs for Auburn University students to attend for a reduced amount.

We will announce the tailgate menu closer to time.

If you require dietary accommodation, you can contact parent@auburn.edu to let us know.

No, you will not receive a ticket in the mail.  Additional details will be provided as we finalize Fall Family Weekend 2021 plans.

Gameday at Auburn University is a major event, and Parent & Family Programs cannot guarantee parking for any guest.  However, Auburn Athletics has provided guidance regarding parking for game day at the following links:

Guests of the university are also encouraged to park in downtown Auburn and surrounding streets.  Guests should be prepared to walk during gameday, as the traffic pattern on campus and surround area is altered to accommodate the large number of fans in the area.

Accessible parking is available on game day. We will publish this information as it is posted. Gameday weekends are crowded, and campus can be difficult to navigate. We recommend bringing a wheelchair or a motorized scooter for those guests to have trouble walking long distances. We are not able to provide golf-carting or shuttling from accessible parking areas to the location of the tailgate.

Of course! There are tons of family-friendly events for your student’s sibling to attend throughout the entire weekend. Please note that a ticket will have to be purchased for siblings as well.

We are continuing to work with Auburn Athletics to finalize football ticket plans.  In the event that we are able to offer a parent and family block that decision is completely up to you! The student section of Jordan-Hare stadium is blocked off from general seating. If you would like for your student to sit with you during the game, we recommend purchasing a ticket for them, or plan on meeting up after the game. Please note that football tickets are a separate purchase from Fall Family Weekend event tickets.

Most certainly! We always recommend comparing the schedule of events to see if it is feasible to attend both. Tickets for Fall Family Weekend will be on sale till close to the event, so you have plenty of time to weigh your options.

Tickets to the Auburn University Parent & Family Association’s Tailgate can be refunded in full through 3:00 p.m. Central Time on the Friday one week prior to the start of Fall Family Weekend. After this date, all sales are final. Because a final number must be turned into the caterer for the tailgate, all meals are purchased at this time and no ticket may be refunded.

 

To request a refund of your Tailgate tickets you can:

  • Email parent@auburn.edu
  • Provide the name on the order and the email address used
  • Provide what tickets you would like refunded.

 

Please note that Fall Family Weekend tailgate is a rain or shine event.  Refunds will not be provided in the event of inclement weather, due to the cost of space, tent, and food rental order. In the event of cancellation due to inclement weather or other matter beyond the control of Parent & Family Programs, all purchased food will be donated to the Campus Kitchens project to provide meals to food-insecure members of the Auburn campus and community.

All football ticket sales are final.
