Family & Alumni Picnic

Our annual picnic is a great way to celebrate the changing of the seasons and to usher in the new school year. This year we will be celebrating Harker’s 125th anniversary! As a special thank you to the Harker community, admission will be free. Register for your free passes below.

The picnic features longtime favorites like field games, carnival booths, food, teacher packages, auction items, performances and much more. We all love this special day at Harker, rain or shine, because it's a day for us to come together each year and appreciate how lucky we are to be a part of the Harker family.

About the Picnic

The Harker Family & Alumni Picnic is an annual event and one of the school's two major fundraisers (along with the gala). This year the family picnic is celebrating 68 years of family. The fun happens on the middle school campus on Blackford Avenue on Sun., Oct. 7 from 10 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

"Picnic" is a little bit of a misnomer, in that the event is really more like a great big family festival. On the day of the picnic the campus will be transformed into an amazing array of games, specialty-themed activities and entertainment for children of all ages. There will also be a silent auction and, of course, plenty of food and treats available for purchase. It is a spectacular day for the whole family! Many families also invite relatives and friends, who then get a glimpse into the family fun side of our Harker community.
