Marauders Fest is a major fundraising event for athletic scholarships at the University of Mary; all of the money raised will benefit student athletes right here. It is also a time for alumni, fans, and community members to see the new and exciting changes on our growing campus.

Festivities begin on June 18 with a Pitchfork Fondue. Activities will continue throughout the week, with a 5K/10K run on Wednesday, a FootGolf tournament on Thursday, a Golf Tournament on Friday, a Poker Run and Volleyball tournament on Saturday, and more. We hope you will attend the various events on campus and around the Bismarck-Mandan community.
