Bruin Bash

UCLA Bruin Bash events are designed for alumni, fans, and friends to gather and celebrate the Bruin Spirit before entering the game. Bruin Bash is family-friendly, nostalgic and exciting for all ages. Everyone is welcome, from first time Bruin fans to life-long supporters. Sign up for a fun way to beat the traffic by arriving early and enjoying a pre-game meal!

Bruin Bash events have taken place at the James West Alumni Center, Rose Bowl and at other locations as our teams go on the road. No matter where we are, we want to create an inviting and festive environment for our UCLA community to connect with one another and warm up their 8-Clap cheer before the game.
