Stay hydrated! Fill a water bottle or travel mug before you come to the event. Use one of the many water refill stations to refill when needed.

Compostable plates, cups, and more
Dinner at OPERS Fest will be served on 100% compostable service ware. That means your plate, cup, napkin, cutlery (and even the wrapper it comes in!) are all compostable. All food scraps are compostable as well. Please do not throw flyers, newspapers, candy wrappers, or chip bags into the compost; use our recycling and trash bins instead.

Evening (after 6pm) Dining

These independently-operated locations will be open:

  • Iveta Cafe - open until 9pm Located in the Quarry Plaza
  • Vivas Mexican Restaurant - open until 8pm Located at Merrill College


Where is the restroom?
Restroom facilities are located inside the fenced in OPERS facilities, adjacent to the East Field. Specifically, restrooms can be located inside the Wellness Center (gym), inside the main OPERS building near the northwest side of the field, and near the tennis courts inside the team locker rooms.

Where is the Lost-and-Found?
If you lose something during OPERS Fest, please visit the OPERS front office on the following day.
