Beer trucks are coming to Meliora Weekend this year, a twist to the fifteenth annual celebration’s usual fare.

Alongside the standard food trucks stationed at Wilson Quad, now a part of the new Meliora Village, will be a beer truck, open Friday, Oct. 7, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday, Oct. 8, from 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Aimed at creating a tailgate style atmosphere, there will also be music and student performances for all to enjoy.

A second beer truck will be available from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. during the Ben Folds concert on the Rugby Field Oct. 8.

The three-day Meliora Weekend, which is slated to begin Oct. 6, features a variety of keynote speakers, live entertainment, symposia and panel discussions, reunion events, sporting events, seminars, open houses, and more. It is the University’s official homecoming weekend.

For students to participate in the weekend festivities, they must register for the Meliora Weekend Passa free pass which grants access to all non-ticketed events. For those who wish to have access to the beer trucks, 21+ wristbands will be distributed when students pick up their registration packets in Wilson Commons, or at the beer trucks and bars across campus.
