Event Information

Annual Open House Celebration

8 am- 2 pm

The University Union



Established in 2000, Phlagleblast is an annual event in which the University Union showcases all of the great vendors, offices and services the Union has to offer. Phlagleblast is held the second week of each Fall semester either Wednesday or Thursday, depending on the calendar year. The building is transformed/decorated overnight with a new theme each year. Past themes include: Love, Candy Land, Under the Sea, Jungle Safari, Circus, and many more. This year's theme will be revealed over the Summer.

The Phlagleblast game allows students, staff, and faculty to familiarize them with the Union. As visitors enter the building, they are greeted and welcomed by our friendly staff with a happy smile and a game card. Participants then visit each vendor, office or program on the game card and receive a stamp and other information and useful freebies such as highlighters, pens, post-its, and many other school supplies. Once their game card is complete, they submit it to the prize table and are automatically entered into a drawing to win grand prizes (see list below) and a ton of other cool and free stuff including meal vouchers. Each participant is a winner just for completing the game card. They receive either a collectors' t-shirt or useful gift that is theme related.  Everyone can play, but only students can win grand prizes. Sac State looks forward to Phlagleblast each year to see what theme has been chosen, what exciting entertainment has been planned for the day, and what cool over-the-top prizes will be given away. This is a fun and free event- if you are a Sac State student, you should never miss it!

All ages permitted. No alcohol sold or permitted at venue.
