Picnic Day!



Join us for the 103rd Annual Picnic Day!

The Cal Aggie Alumni Association is a proud sponsor of Picnic Day and hosts a number of events and fun activities for Aggie alumni and their families in the Gateway District. CAAA kicks off Picnic Day festivities on Friday with our annual Golden Society Reunion and the UC Davis Alumni Wine Tasting.  On Picnic Day, CAAA hosts the Authentic Aggie Zone on Vanderhoef Quad, the VIP Member Lounge at the Walter A. Buehler Alumni Center and the first annual Aggie drone photo. For over 100 years, UC Davis’ annual Open House has served to display the incredible achievements by students, faculty, and Aggie community members. As the largest student-run event in the country, alumni, parents, friends, community members and students come to see animals, inventions, performances, and a parade. Come join us for what is to be a memorable and fun weekend!
