Trick or Treating on the Lawn

  • University of Virginia McCormick Road Charlottesville, VA, 22903 United States (map)

A longtime tradition established by students in the late 1980s, Trick-or-Treating on the Lawn is not only a highly anticipated event for the University each year, it is also open to and eagerly awaited by children and families from the local community.

This year's event will be held on Wednesday, October 31 from 5:00-7:00 p.m.

Lawn residents and members of student organizations are stationed in each of the 54 Lawn rooms as well as the West Range to give out treats. All candy is donated and distributed by approximately 70 student groups and other organizations.

Free parking for families attending the event will be available from 3:30 p.m. at the University Hall and John Paul Jones Arena lots (parking.virginia.edu/system/files/JPJ-parking-map.pdf). Starting at 4:00 p.m., guests may also park for free in the Arts Grounds garage on Culbreth Road. Paid hourly parking will be available in the Central Grounds Parking Garage on Emmet Street.
