Alumni & Family Weekend

Thank you for attending!

Thousands returned to campus for this year’s Alumni & Family Weekend. It was a special time with an engaging assortment of academic sessions focused on Fairfield's Jesuit mission, as well as a multitude of opportunities for guests to experience the athletic, artistic, and fun sides of Fairfield. Events included StagFest, RugbyFest, the Stags Pep Rally, various athletic games, a Glee Club Concert, the annual White Coat Ceremony, and more.

Thank you to all those who attended Alumni & Family Weekend and to all those who were with us in spirit. It was a time to reconnect, enjoy, network, and to experience our proud traditions here at Fairfield.

This is our annual Alumni & Family Weekend festival which has something to offer for the entire family. There are a variety of food vendors, a wine + beer garden, the Lil’ Stags Zone, a Stags Pep Rally, photo booth, and live band entertainment featuring “The Adults.” This festival is free and open to guests of all ages, with vouchers required only for the food vendors and wine + beer garden. All guests will have access to complimentary water, with additional non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase. To ensure we are in compliance with all Covid-19 regulations, StagFest sales will be limited to the first 1,000 orders.
