Cal Poly’s Open House starts Thursday and runs through Saturday with a host of family-friendly activities and opportunities to learn about university programs.

More than 7,000 visitors are expected.

The weekend starts Thursday with a preview of campus clubs at the downtown Farmers Market; Friday is admitted students preview day.

Saturday’s list of events are open to the public and include a campus showcase with tours, main stage performances, a kids’ fair and more. The Poly Royal Parade will take place from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday, and a rodeo will be from 5 to 7 p.m.

Cal Poly’s 2005 solar house will be on display in the C-7 parking lot. The student-designed house earned third place in the 2005 National Solar Decathlon Competition in Washington, D.C., where teams of architecture students competed to design and built energy-efficient solar-powered houses.
