The ND/AFA Weekend has something for everyone! All events are family oriented with kids under 12 getting free entry. Bring the whole family! Connect with fellow Irish fans and get into the spirit of Notre Dame by supporting your team on and off the playing field. And, be sure to stop by the Notre Dame Credit Union table during the weekend for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore.
The ole’ fashioned Pep Rally will feature speakers from ND, music, lots of cheering led by the Cheerleaders, concession style food, beer from Odell (the official beer of the weekend!) and more. Visit the website to get up to date info and order your tickets. Order now and don’t wait in line at the door – simply show your confirmation and walk right in!!!
The Tailgate Party will be one to remember!!
We want all Irish fans to show up so we can rival the tailgater that the AFA does (read: more people, louder cheering and more fun!). Doors open at 11AM – you’ll want to be there early so you don’t miss a minute of the fun (and prizes!) that will be led by former KBCO DJ Pat Downey. Food will be prepared fresh by McCabe’s Tavern and Bite Me Gourmet Sausages. The Odell Beer Truck will be on-site pouring three of their most popular beers. Only a limited number of tickets will be sold on game day, so we encourage you to get your tickets today!
Notre Dame Football only comes to Colorado once in a blue moon. Be a part of this historic weekend by attending all or part of the activities and Get Your Irish On with other ND fans as we bring home a Victory for the Irish!
Thank you to all our partners and sponsors!
