Chicago Aggies: All-UC Holiday Event

We are excited to announce our first all-UC event! We will be gathering in Daley Plaza for the Christkindlmarket to network and socialize with fellow UC alums in Chicago from local alumni networks across the UC system. Each network is inviting their alums and if you happen to know another UC alum, put it on their radar!

This Chicago tradition occurs every year in Daley Plaza, turning the area into a small German village filled with shops, vendors and food. Enjoy some hot gluwein, brats, potato pancakes, roasted nuts and other fun holiday fare after work in the heart of the city. The market also houses the city’s official Christmas tree. Thank you to alum Sylvia Yu for leading our interactions with the other UC networks and helping to make this possible!

Stop by and meet other alums from our prestigious university system. We will be meeting at the market's main entrance on Washington Street under the banner and handing out UC Davis buttons for your jacket or coat.  Let’s make sure UC Davis is well represented and enjoy some holiday festivities!

Time: 5:30 - 8 p.m.
Location: Chriskindlmarket (German Christmas Market)
