Picnic Day 2009 is this year's Picnic Day celebration fittingly titled Reflections: 100 Years of Aggie Legacy. As usual, there will be the 150+ exhibits and special events all over campus, the parade, Picnic Day Battle of the Bands, a sledding hill with Ski Demonstrations, Davis Dance Revolution, and so much more! Last year, a non-profit fair was hosted at Olson Lawn successfully, and we hope to showcase the charities and nonprofits in the Yolo/Sacramento area again.

Applications Applications for the Student Organization Faire, Animal Events, Entertainment, Exhibits, Non-Profit Organization, Parade and Special Events are now available on the Picnic Day website. They are due Wednesday, February 25, 2009 at 5:00PM
