Fall Family Weekend

Fall Family Weekend is an annual campus tradition that brings students and their families together with the Chestertown community in a celebration of academic and co-curricular achievement. 

Typically scheduled for the last weekend in September, Fall Family Weekend coincides with the new, annual Chestertown RiverFest hosted by the College’s Center for Environment & Society and Chestertown RiverArts. Students design and build their own vessels to compete in the Cardboard Boat Regatta.

On-campus activities include the Academic Showcase featuring Poster Presentations, a dance presentation, Grad Fair, readings, and athletic events.
