Sibs & Kids Weekend is a weekend in which Mason faculty, staff and students can invite any child, niece, nephew, brother, sister, cousin, friend or neighbor to campus to experience the excitement of life as a Patriot! Fun activities and events for siblings and kids ages 6-18 will be held throughout the weekend of April 21-22.
While your Mason student and their guest(s) are enjoying Sibs & Kids Weekend, consider this Mason’s gift of relaxation to you – our parents and family members. This is a time for you to take a stay-cation without your kids or to visit the university. To find a local hotel, visit masonfamilyevents.gmu.edu/where-to-stay.
After you enjoy all that Northern Virginia and the D.C. area have to offer, join us to wrap up the weekend on Sunday, April 22 from 10:30 a.m.-noon for Breakfast & Bingo at Ike’s! Family members over the age of 10 not registered as Sibs & Kids Weekend participants will be charged $8 plus tax to attend the breakfast. All family members 10 and under are free. Breakfast tickets can be purchased on site.

In addition to Breakfast & Bingo on Sunday, the participant registration fee includes giveaways, a Sibs & Kids Weekend t-shirt, entrance to Mason Recreation facilities, lunch, games, dinner and trivia, and parking for two days on the Fairfax campus.
