Parents & Families

Parent & Family Weekend, presented by Alaska Airlines, is your weekend with your #UWFamily! Spend quality time together and discover what the Husky Experience is all about.

The weekend kicks off at noon on Friday, April 12 — and be sure to join us at 4 p.m. that day for the PFW Welcome Event. Hear from UW President Ana Mari Cauce, enjoy performances from the Husky Marching Band and UW Cheer, catch an appearance by live mascot Dubs II, and much more.

After that, it’s up to you! Choose from a variety of events and activities to build a schedule that fits your family’s interests. Here are a few ideas to get you started.
