University of Central Florida Family Weekend 2021

This year’s UCF Family Weekend will take place Friday, October 8th through Sunday, October 10th. In other words, it’s right around the corner!

As usual, Family Weekend will combine live entertainment, sporting action, and orientation resources useful for students and parents alike.

Friday night’s itinerary comes jampacked with good stuff, including the UCF Resource Fair, the Knights Major Exploration & Transition Center Open House, and an outdoor carnival on Memory Mall. Other activities on offer will include Fraternity & Sorority Life’s Parent & Family Open House and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion’s En Familia.

The Friday Knight Welcome goings-on will also feature two shows by the famed Downtown Orlando improv group SAK Comedy Lab, established in 1991 and producing some mighty well-known alum, including Wayne Brady and Paula Pell. You’ll also be able to get a bead on UCF mascot Knightro at some point during the proceedings…

Saturday’s main event is the football game between the UCF Knights and the East Carolina University Pirates, taking place at the fabled Bounce House. Ahead of that there’ll be the UCF Family Weekend tailgate, including live music through the UCF Tailgate Concert Series.

On Sunday the 9th, Student Success will lead “It Happens Downtown” Immersive Experiences to round Family Weekend out.
