Alumni - Events & Reunions - Family Friendly Weekend
Family Friendly Weekend
The entire family is welcome during Reunion Weekend.
We're delighted that you are planning a return to Grounds this spring. If you are traveling with children or grandchildren, please know that they are welcome at Reunion. When you arrive on Grounds and check in, you will find activities in the lobby to occupy them while you pick up your registration packet, catch up with friends or learn about new initiatives from various Darden departments. The Picnic and Field Day on Saturday is planned with children in mind, offering inflatable attractions, face painting, a balloon artist, petting zoo, and room to play. Nursing moms in need of a quiet space should stop by our registration desk for assistance.
While in Charlottesville, you may find the Charlottesville Family website helpful for kid-friendly activities, parks and playground locations and more.
