The Return: Fan Fest & Scrimmage

Aug 19, 2021

The University of Washington football program announced several fan engagement opportunities to welcome the greatest fans back to The Greatest Setting. The month of August will be highlighted with The Return: Fan Fest & Scrimmage event inside Alaska Airlines Field at Husky Stadium on Saturday, Aug. 21.


The day will feature several family-friendly activities on the East Practice Field, including food trucks, inflatables, live performances from the Husky Band, a chance to participate in the Dawg Walk and much more. Following the festivities, fans are encouraged to head over to Husky Stadium to watch the team participate in a scrimmage from 1-3 PM. Concessions will be available inside Husky Stadium for the scrimmage, and 2021 Husky Football season ticket holders who RSVP to attend will be sent vouchers for complementary popcorn and soda. The event will take the place of Raise The Woof and Picture Day, two long-time events that will be postponed until 2022 due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19.

10:30 AM | Fan Fest Opens
11 AM | Dawg Walk

Season Ticket Holder Virtual Happy Hour | Tuesday, Aug. 31 | 5:30 – 6:30 PM | RSVP Link To Come
Back by popular demand after last April's event that featured updates from Director of Athletics Jen Cohen and Damon Huard, the athletic department is planning to host another hour-long session to take questions from fans. Cohen and Huard will provide updates related to the department and college athletics, but because what is most important to our fans is what matters to us, we would love to hear what is on the minds of our season ticket holders.
