UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - The annual Blue-White Weekend is slated to be full of fun activities for fans of all ages, highlighted by the Blue-White Game presented by Xfinity, which is set for Saturday, April 22 at 3 p.m. The Penn State Spring Football game serves as the centerpiece for numerous activities throughout the weekend on the University Park campus.

Admission will be free for the Blue-White Game presented by Xfinity. Season ticket holders who also purchased season parking permits for the 2016 season received a white 2017 Blue-White Game parking permit with their 2016 tickets and parking permit sheet last summer. Season ticket holders planning to attend the Blue-White Game are asked to hang their permit as they approach Beaver Stadium. Previously issued Blue-White Game parking permits that are lost will not be replaced.

In anticipation of another large Blue-White Game crowd, fans are encouraged to purchased Blue-White car and RV parking permits in advance. Season ticket holders with a white permit and patrons with pre-purchased permits will be able to park in the lots closest to Beaver Stadium. Fans purchasing parking permits on game day will be parked in lots further from the stadium. Advance parking purchases by phone (1-800-NITTANY) and online will end at 5 p.m. on Friday, April 7.

As announced in June 2016, fans attending the Blue-White Game who did not have 2016 season tickets and a season parking permit will be charged for parking for the intrasquad scrimmage. During Blue-White Weekend, there will be a $20 charge (cash only) for game day RVs and cars and a $60 charge (cash only) for the overnight RV lot (for all fans that arrive on Friday with an RV). Buses also will be charged $60 (cash only).

The popular autograph session with the Nittany Lions will be held from 12:15-1:05 p.m. at gates A, B, C, E and F of Beaver Stadium. The players will be permitted to sign one item per person to give as many fans as possible an opportunity to meet the squad. Autograph session details will be announced via Penn State Football social channels (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) the week of the Blue-White Game.
