Mark your calendars for April 22, 2017! That's the date that Penn State has set for Blue-White weekend, a date that has emerged as a harbinger of spring, an unofficial spring reunion, and the celebration of a new year of football. It’s also a chance to return to State College and reunite with Alpha Zeta!

 “Blue-White Weekend is a tremendous illustration of the Penn State community coming together all across campus,” said Director of Athletics Sandy Barbour. “Blue-White is a great example of Athletics serving as a conduit for our Penn State family connectedness.”

But all this togetherness comes at a cost... Penn State reports an excess of $500,000 to ensure an enjoyable, safe and successful game day. Facility preparations, security, traffic/parking, game day staffing and portable lighting and toilets are among the areas of greatest expense.

In light of this, here are the changes you’ll need to know for the upcoming year:

Car Parking Change at 2017 Blue-White Game to Address Portion of Expenses; No Changes for Season Ticket Holders with Season Parking

Season ticket holders – no charge. Their Blue-White Game parking will be in the preferred lots adjacent to the stadium. Season ticket holders with season car parking will receive a 2017 Blue-White parking permit when they receive their 2016 season tickets this summer.

Season ticket holders with season overnight RV or season game day RV parking will receive a 2017 Blue-White game day RV parking permit this summer. For fans with an RV arriving on Friday, April 21, the overnight RV lot will remain $60 (cash only) for all fans for the Blue-White Game.

All RVs will park in the overnight RV lot for the spring game.

Fans arriving on game day for the 2017 Blue-White game who did not have a 2016 season car or RV parking permit will be charged $20 (cash only) for car parking in the Blue-White gameday car lots or $20 (cash only) for RV parking in the overnight RV lot. All RVs will park in the overnight RV lot for the spring game.

Details on purchasing a Blue-White Game car or RV parking pass will be announced by January 31, 2017.
