Diadeloso is right around the corner, and already the university has a full day of entertainment lined up.
Festivities begin at 9 a.m. and continue until 7:30 p.m.

Morning activities kick off with student musicians, the Dia Queen competition and a dog show.

Throughout the day, Baylor students will be able to test their mettle in a variety of athletic competitions featuring everything from campus golf to tug-of-war.

Registration for these events opens March 27, and registration fees vary from $5 to $35.

Food options include Austin food trucks Blue Dog Pizza, and Yume Burger along with local favorites like Taqueria La Milpa and Penguin Pete’s Snocones.

The afternoon’s entertainment includes the fiery comedic stunts of the KamiKaze Fireflies, a professional hypnotist, camel rides provided by the Texas Camel Corps, and a student organization activity carnival.

The main stage will host a lineup of student musicians as well as Uproar Records artists and Baylor students David Dulcie and Ty Mayfield. Headlining the event is the Virginia-based pop-rock band, Parachute.
