The Alumni Association is offering a limited number of tickets and many are already sold out, according to Vice President of Advancement Jeff Wendorf.

Prices range starting at $1,439 to $3,359. The total prices will vary depending on what you add on to each package deal.

Some items include plane tickets, hotel accommodations, tickets to the welcome event, tickets to the Badger Huddle pregame event, Rose Bowl souvenirs and more.

“Everything from the game day tailgate to New Year’s Eve events, it’s all included,” Wendorf said. “It depends upon how many nights you want to stay, what you want to add on to your package and what hotel you want to stay at.”

Wendorf said the Alumni Association plans to bring about 1,500 guests with them to Pasadena.

“I think the best deal is being there for four nights because if you’re going all the way to Los Angeles, you’ll want to take in everything,” Wendorf said.

Travel packages through the Alumni Association do not include tickets to the Rose Bowl game. Optional tickets are available to be added to each package.

Burkhalter Travel Agency is also offering package deals that range from $2,349 to $3,825.

“All of the packages are four-night programs with charter flights, non-stop flights from Madison or Milwaukee. You have a choice of a hotel, either downtown, Santa Monica or Hollywood,” said Burkhalter Travel President Ed Mani. “The most popular out of the three hotels is the one in Santa Monica. That’s $200 more but it’s the most popular because it is four blocks from the ocean.”

Optional purchases include adding on tickets to the Rose Bowl parade, the Badger Huddle tailgate, and the UW pregame party.
