B1G FEST is the premier charity event for fans, friends and alumni of the schools of the Big Ten
Athletic Conference. Hosted by the leadership teams from Atlanta-based alumni groups,
B1G FEST has served as a day of football camaraderie and giving back since 2006.
Past beneficiaries of this event include the Boys and Girls Club of Atlanta, Bert’s Big Adventure, Homeless Pets Foundation, YES!Atlanta and Camp SunShine. In 2013, over 1,000 Big Ten alumni, fans and friends participated in the event, and ultimately raised $12,000 for Camp Sunshine.
We are happy to announce that we have partnered with Camp Twin Lakes for the 2014 B1GFest event.
Additional information about Camp Twin Lakes can be found on
their website at http://www.camptwinlakes.org/.
Put on your best Big Ten attire and join us in Buckhead - for a great cause! - and get excited for
the upcoming football season!
Tickets are $15 in advance.
Tickets will also be available at the door the day of the event for $30.
You must be 21 years old to participate in B1GFest
for B1GFest Tickets!
You must stop by the registration table at East Andrews between 4:00 and 6:00 p.m. to scan tickets and receive wristbands. (If you purchase advance tickets AND you're one of the first 1,000 people to check-in at East Andrews, you will also receive a $20 voucher to be used for a future Atlanta Improv Comedy show!)
Be sure to find reps from your favorite Big Ten school’s alumni club throughout the evening!
They will be wearing special lanyards for easy identification.
Ask them about their fall football game watches, networking events and philanthropy
work! And maybe, just maybe, they’ll have some fun items to give away throughout the evening…
Each school has an assigned "home bar" where they'll meet for the School Spirit Hour from 7-8pm.
School Spirit Hour designations are:
- Iowa, Northwestern: East Andrews (Stout)

The "end bar" will be Park Bench with dueling pianos for entertainment. The players are all learning the schools songs!
