Picnic Day, UC Davis
It’s that time of the year again! UC Davis’ 97th annual campus-wide open house, Picnic Day, is this Saturday, April 16, 2011. The theme of this year’s Picnic Day is “Rewind” and was chosen with hope that Picnic Day attendees will revive the spirit of the first picnic day in 1909.
Picnic Day at UC Davis is a family-friendly event for all to come and experience the diversity and achievement at UC Davis and the surrounding community in the areas of research, teaching, service and campus life. Picnic Day is a FREE event and open for everyone, no registration required to attend. For the schedule of events, visit the Picnic Day website.
When I was a student at UC Davis, Picnic Day was always one of the most memorable days of the year. It was the best excuse to wake up early and wander around campus with my friends enjoying the exhibits, parties, demonstrations, live music, food, and the crowds of people present on one of the busiest days of the year in Davis.
Of course, the SacFoodies especially love all the great food at Picnic Day! The abundance of food vendors and food-related events available throughout campus are reason enough for us to attend each year. Check out some of our previous SacFoodies Picnic Day posts to learn more.
