Because of COVID-19, Spring 2021 Family Weekend primarily consists of virtual and remote events. 

The weekend begins today and runs through April 11. Parents and family members of WSU students are encouraged to attend, according to the event website

Formerly known as Mom’s and Dad’s Weekend, this year’s Family Weekend includes a virtual winefest, DIY paint night and drag show, according to the website.  

Although the majority of the 28 events are online, there are two in-person events families may attend. Events held in person will abide by COVID-19 health guidelines. According to the website, only individuals already living in Pullman are welcome in person.

Local promotions from Pullman business will take place during the weekend. For example, College Hill Custom Threads is hosting a pop-up shop with exclusive WSU Family Weekend apparel, according to the website.
