Mark Your Calendars for AFW 2018: Oct. 19-21

Reserve your tickets for this year's Alumni & Family Weekend (AFW 2018).

Mark your calendars. You won't want to miss this one! The 2018 Alumni & Family Weekend will take place over the weekend of October 19-21 and it is going to be better than ever!

Alumni & Family Weekend is an annual Fairfield tradition that offers a variety of fun activities and special events for students, alumni, and families. Alumni enjoy mini-reunions with friends and classmates, and they get to see first-hand what’s new on campus. Parents and families come to see how their sons and daughters are doing after a couple of months away at college. The weekend is always filled with fun activities and events designed to entertain visitors of all ages.

As always, the weekend will include alumni favorites like, RugbyFest, Lil’ Stags Zone, athletic games, food trucks, a Glee Club concert, and other musical entertainment. This year, the festivities will also feature StagFest on October 20 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and a Stags Pep Rally at 3 p.m. in Rafferty Stadium. StagFest will host a wide variety of food trucks, a wine and beer garden, and a performance by The Adults, an alumni band featuring Peter Grennan '89, Jim Sheridan '89, Paul Simonetta '89, Gene Tiernan '89 and George Ramirez '91.

Campus departments have collaborated to create a unique schedule that will offer current students more time to share their experiences with their families, and will give alumni many opportunities to reconnect and network, while also offering everyone the opportunity to gather and enjoy a great time at StagFest.

New this year is Family Night on October 20 from 7-10 p.m. Gather with current students, families, and alumni for a fun night of entertainment, food, and live music from The Sin Sisters band. Additionally, enjoy appetizers, desserts, cash bar, and activities for the kids, such as an inflatable rock wall, photo booth with Lucas, crafts and candy bar.
