Dads Weekend is going virtual! To support the health and safety of our Illinois community, and in the best interest of our students and their families, we will not be able to host an in-person Dads Weekend this year.


Dads Weekend | November 6-8

We could not be more excited to share this weekend with you and your student! Dads Weekend is a fall Illinois tradition. While this year’s Dads Weekend will be virtual, this weekend is still dedicated to all of our Illini Dads and family members! We hope you will join us during Dads weekend for the first-time ever, hosted virtually!

During Dads weekend, students and their families will have the chance to participate in a range of activities. Throughout the weekend, we hope you will share your experiences on social media using the hashtag #IlliniDads.

Welcome to the Illini Union website! Tell us what you think!
