An unforgettable weekend awaits you 28–30 April 2023. Spend time with old friends and beloved faculty. Experience Darden’s world-class hospitality and fabulous food. Attend class parties on and off Grounds, meet friends under the tent at the Foxfield Horse Races, dance to live music at the Saturday night soiree, and enjoy other scheduled events.

  • Pricing & Refunds

    Thank you for your commitment to attend Reunion weekend! We hope you value the opportunity to reengage with the School, Darden faculty and your classmates and that you find the experience well worth the investment.

    We are pleased to offer a la carte pricing for Reunion weekend activities to allow flexibility for alumni with competing work or personal schedules. Pay only for the activities that you and your family are able to attend. In addition, a la carte registration allows Darden to minimize costs because exact numbers are reported to caterers.

    Full pricing information is available as you go through registration.

    Registration fees are nonrefundable after 5 p.m. EDT on 14 April 2023, when guarantee numbers are due to caterers. Until then, please submit your refund request in writing to the Office of Engagement at alumni@darden.virginia.edu or call +1-434-243-8977 with any questions.
