WHAT IS A BUCKEYE BASH? A Buckeye Bash is a stand-up pep rally hosted by the Ohio State Alumni Association before selected Ohio State home and away football games. These events offer you an opportunity to gather with fellow Buckeyes and get ready for that day’s big game. The cost of a Bash includes site rental, food, beverages, door prizes, raffles, and appearances by Brutus Buckeye, the Ohio State cheerleaders, and other notable Ohio State personalities when possible. These events are typically held within walking distance of the stadium.

IS THERE A REFUND IF I CANNOT ATTEND THE BASH?
Unfortunately, there are no refunds.
DO YOU OFFER VEGETARIAN FOOD OPTIONS?
The Association will make every effort to provide this option when available. However, due to the pre-set menus of our on-site caterers, it is not always possible.
WILL ALCOHOL BE SERVED AT THE BASH?
Information regarding alcohol will be provided in the final confirmation note you will receive prior to the event.
HOW DO I GET INTO THE BASH ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT?
To enter the Bash, present the email that contains your confirmation and receipt as well as a photo ID to the Association staff at the check-in area. They will issue you a wristband which will get you into the event.
WHAT IF I’D LIKE TO BRING A YOUNG CHILD?
Everyone who wants to enter the stadium for the game must have a ticket, regardless of age. All fans, except for those two-and-under, are required to have a ticket to enter the Bash. There is a reduced Bash rate for children age 12 and under.
