  • Why should I attend Reunion?

    Reconnect with old friends, see the Close today, enjoy spring in D.C. (for out-of-towners), meet someone new, talk face-to-face, spend time with Head of School Elinor Scully, reflect on the past, and just have fun!
  • Where should I park and how much does it cost?

    Parking in the Cathedral garage will fill early on both Friday and Saturday mornings. The garage will close at 2:00 am on Friday and 11:00 pm on Saturday and Sunday. In-and-out parking privileges are not available on either day. 
     
    On Friday, the garage will charge normal parking fees: $6 the first hour, $11 the second hour, $15 the third hour, $22 for 3+ hours, and a $7 flat rate after 4:00 pm. Validation for your parking ticket will be available at Registration in the Lower School Library from 7:30 am to 5:30 pm on Friday and Saturday. We will also have parking validation available at the Reunion Tent during the BBQ and at the Hearst reception desk until 10:00 pm; please validate no more than 15 minutes before your departure from the garage. (If you choose to leave the garage after 10:00 pm, you will need to pay the standard garage rate.) 

    On Saturday, the garage will charge an “Event Parking” rate: $10 CASH ONLY to enter the garage. The gate will be up as you exit. 
     
    Nearby Parking: Paid garage parking is available below the Giant grocery store at Cathedral Commons, off Wisconsin Avenue. (Enter from Macomb or Newark streets.) 
     
    Friday/Flower Mart Traffic: If you are attending Friday afternoon events (Kente Cloth Ceremony at 4:00 pm and Welcome Reception at 5:00 pm), we encourage you to plan extra time to drive and park.
