Family weekend reunites students with their families early in the fall semester, when students have settled into their campus routine and are excited to share their life as a Bonnie with their loved ones.

Family Weekend, sponsored by the Campus Activities Board and the Center for Activities, Recreation and Leadership at St. Bonaventure, reunites students and their families so that all may share the rich and varied experiences that make up college life at SBU.

There's live entertainment, an assortment of family friendly games, contests and events, and a number of SBU Division I and club sport contests. Highlights of the weekend include the Polar Spray, a wet and wild fundraiser for Special Olympics New York, and the Family Weekend Festival, a fun-filled event that turns a parking lot into a street fair offering entertainment, information and vendor booths, and much more.

The date for Family Weekend 2021 is not yet set. Please return to this site for updates.
