University of Idaho: Dad's Weekend 2018

By Nicole Hindberg on November 1, 2018

Every year, the University of Idaho puts on a successful Dad’s Weekend. This year, the university is encouraging families to register early to reserve their spot for the festivities featured. With the event only two weeks away, the time to register is running out. Dad’s Weekend 2018 is scheduled for Friday, November 9-Sunday, November 11. Those three days are packed with entertainment for Vandal families.

Friday, November 9th

Kicking off the weekend from 5-7 p.m. at the Best Western Plus University Inn, where there will be a beer tasting for all those dads out there. Hosted by the Student Alumni Relations Board, you can get a ticket for $30 (over 21) and $15 (under 21).

Powerade Pong: 7:30 p.m. at the PEB Gym. Hosted by the student-athlete advisory committee, you can try your luck at the Powerade pong tournament. Register early on the dad’s weekend page:

Saturday, November 10th

Head over to Moscow Building Supply to get free donuts while you shop starting at 9:30 a.m.

At 10 a.m., head over to the swim center to cheer on the women’s swim and dive team as they take on the University of Wyoming.

At 11 a.m., the first annual Dad’s Weekend Cornhole Tournament begins. The cost is $5 per person if you register early.

At noon, head over to the Memorial Gym and cheer on the Women’s Volleyball team as they take on Montana State University.

Shortly after the volleyball game starts, Vandal Tailgate starts — everyone’s favorite event at Vandal football games. Most have more fun doing this than being in the actual Dome. Tailgate opens at 12:30 p.m.

At 3:30 p.m., the Idaho Vandals will kick off against the University of Montana. At halftime, the Dad of the Year will be announced. More information about how to nominate your dad will be on the Dad’s Weekend website.

At 8 p.m., head over to the Pitman Center to be hypnotized by Sailesh. Hosted by Vandal Student Involvement, you will have a night of laughs, confusion and hypnotism during this not-so-politically correct show.

Sunday, November 11th

From 10 a.m.-4 p.m., the Vandal Store will be open and having a sale for the Vandal families out there.

Spend your Sunday with your dad before you say goodbye.

This weekend will be full of fun for your Vandal family. It will create memories for you and your parents. Hopefully, they will stop nagging you about spending time with them, at least until Thanksgiving break is over. The University is predicting a larger turnout than last year so register early so you can participate in everything that you want to!
