Return to Happy Valley July 08–12, 2015, and relive your college years by staying in the West Hall dorms just steps away from the Arts Festival’s sidewalk sales, festival food, and countless concerts. Alumni Weekend special events include, career seminars, access to ice skating at Pegula Ice Arena, swimming at Penn State's Olympic–size outdoor pool next to the natatorium, and the ever popular Saturday afternoon ice cream social featuring Berkey Creamery favorites and live entertainment from The Feats of Strength.

Other amenities included in alumni weekend is free parking at the Nittany Parking Deck, free daily breakfast if staying in the dorms, Arts Festival official button for downtown performances, giveaways, and a “Behind the Scenes” tour hosted Arts Festival’s executive director and staff.

New this year is a guided tour through The Arboretum at Penn State with extra time for the little ones to explore Childhood’s Gate Children’s Garden, which opened last July.
