Sibling Weekend 2019
Get your favorite siblings to campus for this year’s Sibling Weekend 2019, April 12-14, presented by Student Alumni Council.
This annual tradition has tons of events happening all over campus (thanks to many campus departments and programs), from sports to movies to free food. And that’s not to mention Gamma Phi’s big Spring Shows and carnival at Redbird Arena. Check out some of the can’t-miss ones below and stay updated on more events through the Sibling Weekend website.
Be sure to use #RedbirdFamily as you post and share the memories you create with your siblings and family.
2019 Gamma Phi Circus
Please join us for the annual Gamma Phi Circus Spring Shows, a Sibling Weekend tradition that features performances by the oldest collegiate circus in the nation. This year marks the 90th anniversary of the founding of Gamma Phi at Illinois State University in 1929 by Clifford “Pop” Horton. So the circus is bringing out all the stops with this year’s “Celebration” theme.
Student Alumni Council welcomes you to its seventh annual pre-show Sibling’s Carnival on the Redbird Arena Concourse, beginning at noon prior to the 1 p.m. Saturday matinee show of Gamma Phi. This popular Sibling Weekend tradition is kid-approved and open to everyone that has a youth ticket to the matinee show. The carnival includes a variety of games, face painters, prizes, and fun for kids of all ages.
