Event Date

UC Davis
Amid the COVID-19 outbreak, we have been closely monitoring the guidance provided by local and state public health departments, which strongly recommend canceling large gatherings. It is with heavy hearts that we announce Picnic Day, scheduled for April 18, 2020, is canceled. We hope to see you at next year's 106th Picnic Day on April 17, 2021.

Picnic Day is one of UC Davis’ most revered traditions for alumni, students, families, staff, faculty and the greater community. This family-friendly event is free for all.  With more than 200 events taking place throughout campus, Picnic Day is a great time for Aggie alumni and their friends and family to come back to campus.

The Cal Aggie Alumni Association is a proud sponsor of Picnic Day and hosts fun activities for alumni and their families in the Gateway District (map). Additionally, when Aggies everywhere are thinking of their alma mater, UC Davis will hold its fourth annual Give Day – a 29-hour fundraising drive.

A full schedule of events for Picnic Day can be downloaded from the main Picnic Day website and is typically available the week before the event.
