Parents and Families

An annual tradition, Parent and Family Weekend festivities offer parents, families and loved ones an opportunity to explore campus and the greater Ann Arbor area alongside their Wolverine. 

This year, Parent and Family Weekend takes place during Homecoming weekend, which is sure to bring an added dose of “Go Blue” energy! 

While registration is now closed for this year’s event, we encourage families to attend even if they have not purchased tickets. A wealth of free events are available throughout the weekend that do not require tickets. The Bentley Historical Library’s Historic Walking Tour and the Parents & Family Weekend Photo Opportunity are two examples of the activities that await, and which will immerse the family in our campus culture.

For those who were not able to purchase football tickets through Parents and Family Weekend registration, we recommend checking with U-M Athletics at or StubHub for ticket availability. Additionally, though registration is now closed, we recommend contacting TJ Striblen with G-Men, U-M’s all-male a cappella group, at to see if G-Fest tickets are still available for purchase.

There are many places to explore in Ann Arbor; head over to Destination Ann Arbor to see all that Ann Arbor has to offer!
