The Hokie Village is a fan and family-friendly festival that will give fans the opportunity to come to Blacksburg on home game days and provide them with free pregame entertainment. Hokie Village features inflatables, tailgating games, concessions, music from the Marching Virginians and appearances by Virginia Tech student-athletes including the Virginia Tech Wrestling team and the Women's Lacrosse team and the Spirit Squads and HokieBird.

Hokie Village will also be the home of a beer garden as a pregame entertainment option for fans looking for easily accessible family friendly tailgating options. As it is a controlled area, fans cannot bring in beer from outside of Hokie Village nor leave Hokie Village without consuming their beverages. Accepting both cash and cards.

In addition, Virginia Tech team buses arrive at approximately 1:30 pm for The Hokie Walk. Head coach Justin Fuente and the team will walk from the outside the West Side of Lane Stadium on Beamer Way to the team locker room in the Merryman Center. Fans are encouraged to cheer on the team upon arrival.

The new Victory to March combines fans' favorite game day traditions to form a spirit parade into Lane Stadium. Beginning one hour prior to kickoff at the Marching Virginians Center, the parade will travel through Lot 5, pass between Lots 2 and 3, and conclude in Lane Stadium entering through the Southwest field tunnel. The parade will feature Skipper, the HokieBird, the HighTechs dance team, the Corps of Cadets spirit team, Esprit De Corps, and of course the Marching Virginians. Fans are encouraged to join in the March to Victory and enter Lane Stadium gates upon the conclusion of the march.

The Hokie Village will be held on the turf soccer practice field and can be accessed by both the Beamer Way gate entrance and the Thompson Field entrance.
