We regret to inform you that due to legal proceedings outside of our control, the William & Mary Picnic at Presqu’Isle on Saturday, September 9 has been cancelled. In a very recent decision this past weekend, the Culpeper Circuit Court justice has ordered the owner of Presqu’Isle and the Historic Presqu’Isle Foundation to cease holding events at the park. With the spirit of this event intrinsically tied to the Presqu’Isle venue, our best option in this late stage is to extend refunds and offer our deepest apologies to each of you for this inconvenience.


Join fellow members of the Tribe family for this unique opportunity to enjoy a late summer afternoon in beautiful Remington, Virginia. Located near the headwaters of the Rappahanock, this William & Mary alumni-owned historic park allows visitors to experience the natural beauty and history of a 19th-century Virginia country estate. 

This event will feature a barbecue style lunch from Shawn's Smokehouse and BBQ Company, beverages from Virginia breweries and wineries, as well as family friendly lawn games, live music, and more! You do not want to miss this opportunity to experience rural Virginia at its finest, with William & Mary alumni, family, and friends from around the Commonwealth.

Ticket cost is $25 per person and includes food & drink. Children 10 and under are free.
Kindly RSVP by Saturday, September 2.

This event will take place rain or shine. Casual (or Tribe Pride!) attire, please.
