Reconnect at Family and Alumni Weekend

Each spring, Family and Alumni Weekend offers three fun-filled days of events and opportunities for families of current students to visit Savannah, and for alumni to reconnect with former classmates at SCAD.

The weekend's highlight is the 36th annual Sidewalk Arts Festival, a SCAD signature event that invites students and alumni to create temporary chalk art masterpieces on the sidewalks of scenic Forsyth Park.

For family registration, visit Eventbrite.

Many local hotels offer discounted rates for SCAD families. Inquire about SCAD rate availability when booking.
