Annual Picnic at Magnuson Park

All alumni, students, families, and friends are welcome! Reconnect with fellow alums, meet incoming Harvard students, and welcome the Club's annual cohort of CAP Scholars. Volunteers needed (see below). Note the new location.



Please join us for a Harvard Club tradition, the Annual Picnic, at Seattle's stunning Madrona Park on Lake Washington. Home to bald eagles and beautiful views (see below), Madrona Park provides a perfect new venue in which to connect with fellow alumni, meet incoming Harvard students and the Harvard Club CAP Scholars, enjoy great food (including vegetarian options), and learn more about the Club. The picnic is free.


Date:  Saturday, August 7, 2021

Time:  3:00 - 6:00 pm

Location: Warren G. Magnuson Park Shelter 1,  7400 Sand Point Way NE Seattle, WA 98115. 


The cookout is free, and there will be plenty of summertime standards like burgers, hot dogs, and sodas. Please bring a dish to share. If you are so inclined, you may proudly display your culinary prowess by bringing a homemade seasonal cookout favorite. The time crunched (or less daring) are free to exercise those shopping skills and share snacks, a salad, or dessert. Please bring serving utensils, if needed, for your dish (but no sharp knives).


Seating: â€‹please bring a beach blanket or camp chairs as on-site seating is limited.


All alumni, students, parents, and guests are welcome, so bring your family and friends. We hope to see you there!
