A few summers ago we began a UCLA tradition right here in Washington D.C. - over 100 Bruins came together from far and near to spend a beautiful summer day meeting old friends and making new ones, eating, drinking, and California dreamin' while relaxing in the sun. This annual picnic, taking place this year on Saturday, July 21st, features our New Student Sendoff (where we recognize DC-area students attending UCLA in the Fall), the 3rd Annual Bruin Bake-Off, many UCLA claps, games and more! Please feel free to bring frisbees, footballs, and other recreational items as well. Little Bruins are welcome!

Use this link to RSVP in addition to letting your friends know you're coming on Google+:

The event is free, but we'd like you to RSVP in advance so we have a good head count. Food and refreshments are provided, but feel free to pack a picnic, throw some food onto the grill, or go potluck style. Feel free to show off your dad's potato salad or your grandmother's apple pie!

How to Get there:
Garfield Park (F St SE & 2nd St SE) is conveniently located just two blocks south of the Capital South Metro stop. There is also parking available around the park, although some of the streets have 2 hour parking limits on Saturdays.

Interested in Helping out? Want to volunteer at the picnic? Shoot us an e-mail at and we'll fill you in on the opportunities available.
