Family Fest and Campus Sustainability Day

It’s October already?  I guess what they say really is true; time flies when you’re being sustainable.  It’s a good thing you checked into the Conservation Conversation when you did.  In the upcoming weeks of October, there will be numerous events for you to take part in and enjoy.


“Get set for good food and lots of fun with carnival games, prizes, professional family photos with Willie Warhawk, face painting, music, and more!”  On Saturday, October 12, UW-Whitewater will be hosting Family Fest, an interactive and fun-filled event that is sure to bring enjoyment to all who attend.


Family Fest events will be held in the Kachel Field House from 11:30AM to 2:00PM.  Costs to attend events are as follows:


  • Adult Ticket: $12.75
  • Children under 10: $4.50 (3 and under are free)
  • Warhawks without a meal plan: $8.75
  • Warhawks with a meal plan: No Cost! (Students must present HawkCard at event to use their meal plan)


After Family Fest has concluded, you can watch your UW-Whitewater Warhawks take the field to battle UW-Stout Blue Devils at Perkins Stadium.  Kickoff will be at 2:30PM, so come and show your support for the Warhawks.


Following Family Fest, on Wednesday, October 23, UW-Whitewater will be celebrating Campus Sustainability Day.  There will be multiple events around campus for you to participate in.  In particular, the UW-Whitewater Earth Initiative will be hosting a table in the University Center asking for your participation in a plastic bag collection.  This event asks you to bring in 20 plastic shopping bags and in return you can receive a FREE reusable Sentry grocery bag.  Did I mention it’s FREE and REUSABLE?


As time continues to fly, make sure to take some time to enjoy your October by attending Family Fest and Campus Sustainability Day.  Feel free to let us know what you thought about either or both events on Facebook or Twitter.
