UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — There are plenty of reasons to return to University Park for We Are Weekend, set for May 31 to June 2.

We Are Weekend features events, giveaways, and plenty of chances to find out what’s new at Penn State while enjoying time-honored traditional favorites.

The weekend also features a free concert that's open to the community — with We Are Weekend registration including free Berkey Creamery ice cream, water and reserved seating at the concert.  

Bruce in the USA will headline a concert at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park, with State College fan-favorite Velveeta kicking things off. Doors and concession stands will open at noon on Saturday, June 1, at Medlar Field, with Velveeta playing at 12:30 p.m. Then at 2 p.m., fans can rock out to Bruce in the USA, hailed as “The most powerful and intense Springsteen tribute on the planet.”
