Rally at the Rails

Join us in Downtown Brookings for our community "pep rally" event with live music and food trucks!

We’re giving the classic pep rally a hobo reboot and taking it downtown! We’ve invited Jack, the SDSU Cheerleading Team, President Dunn, and the Bum Band. Along with Maiden Dixie who is bringing live music to Brookings to celebrate SDSU's greatest tradition. Throughout the Rally we’ll have a dig-for-worms contest, corn-hole, and yard-sized Jenga. We will also have official Hobo Day buttons for sale, various food trucks and vendors. We hope to see you there! .

  • WHEN: 5-9 p.m. on Wednesday, October 11
  • WHERE: Downtown Brookings, along 5th street near Wooden Legs and Nick's Hamburger Shop

Get Involved

We'll be having a dig-for-worms contest where participants will shove their faces into a pan of whipped cream and Oreo crumbles to find and eat gummy worms as fast as possible. Whoever eats the most worms in 30 seconds wins! Sign up the day of the rally. Student organizations and clubs can also have an activity booth. In the past, groups have had face painting, coloring pages, and games!

If you have any questions, please get in touch with us.
