Things to do before and after the Penn State Blue and White Game

It’s not called Happy Valley for no reason. There are so many things to do in Happy Valley before and after the Blue and White Game in April. Before:
Arrive at the Bryce Jordan Center before the Blue and White game to experience the Family Fun Zone! A variety of activities including live entertainment, games, giveaways and more will be available. This event is free and open to the public. There is also a Fan Festival along Curtin Road on Penn State campus.  You’ll find food vendors, games, sponsor booths, and activities.  The team bus will arrive here and there will be a player autograph session starting at 12:15 PM.

Penn State Athletics will be hosting a Blue-White Apparel Sale from 9 AM-2:30 PM on the day of the Blue-White Game. The sale will include clothing, equipment, and game-used apparel and will be held at Pegula Ice Arena.

Make sure to stop by the Penn State All-Sports Museum from Noon-2 PM.

Hot spots for shopping, dining, and nightlife in Happy Valley, PA after the game

We’ve got you covered for fun things to do in Happy Valley after the Blue and White Game!

State College offers a wonderful selection of nightlife opportunities that range from a relaxed atmosphere for those looking to kick back to the live music options open until 2 AM. Many of these options are just steps away from campus.

There are classic options that bridge multiple Penn State generations like the Tavern or Champ’s or new options such as Liberty Craft House or Local Whiskey. If you’re wanting to combine a good dinner with a cocktail or two we suggest options such as Duffy’s Tavern in Boalsburg, Gigi’s Southern Table, The Field Burger & Tap or Otto’s Pub & Brewery. Venture back to Bellefonte for a really cool vibe at Big Spring Spirits.

Relax and Unwind

Back at the Reynolds Mansion Bed and Breakfast, relax and unwind in your immaculate guest room with private en-suite bathroom.  All of the well-appointed rooms in the mansion have large tv’s, just in case the game gets rained out!  There is also 24/7 coffee and tea available to all guests. We would be thrilled to have you check out all that the mansion has to offer.  We’re only 9 miles from Beaver Stadium.
