While we are very excited to be hosting a virtual Family Weekend 2.0, April 9-11, 2021, we know that our families may be wondering about the dates for Family Weekend in the fall. Traditionally, the dates for Family Weekend are determined based on UK’s academic calendar, athletics’ calendar, and the holiday calendar. This year, we are also navigating the impact of COVID-19 on our ability to gather in large groups. We anticipate knowing more about UK’s plans for the fall, as well as potential Family Weekend dates, later this spring/summer and will keep families updated as we know more. In the meantime, we hope you will join us for our free virtual Family Weekend 2.0, April 9-11, 2021.
