Harker Day is actually two of our beloved long-running annual events – the Harker Family & Alumni Picnic and homecoming – morphed into one, incredible, stupendous Saturday every October. With games, activities and entertainment for all ages, we continue the tradition of the Harker Family & Alumni Picnic – now in its seventh decade – with a day that celebrates everything that is Harker. It’s held on the upper school campus, and admission is free and over 3,000 students, parents, relatives, friends, alumni, teachers and staff attend – it’s the event of the year! Read about last year’s event.
For Our Alumni
Welcome back to 500 Saratoga Ave., Harker Alumni! We’ll have an Alumni BBQ area for you, open from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with food (including vegan and gluten-free options), drinks and activities for your children. Please RSVP below and stop by to reconnect with other alumni and Harker faculty and staff – we can’t wait to see you!
HARKER HALL OF FAME
Launched in 2018 the Harker Hall of Fame honors the dedication and sacrifice of Harker's athletes, teams, coaches and sports supporters. Each year, inductees are selected based on their exemplifying desirable character traits at Harker and beyond, and having distinguished themselves in competition representing Harker, their colleges or at the professional level.
The annual ceremony is held at Homecoming/Harker Day each year and inductees receive an award for display and their names enshrined on the Hall of Fame wall in the athletic center on the upper school campus.
Performing Arts Shows
Hundreds of singers, dancers and actors from TK-12 (along with some very special guests!) present an epic performance each year that pays tribute to our school. While admission is free to Harker Day, advance reservations are required to attend these legendary student shows, and parents are emailed separately with that information.
