Mason Family Flash

Join us for breakfast during Sibs & Kids Weekend!

Sibs & Kids Weekend is a weekend in which Mason faculty, staff and students can invite any child, family member or friend 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 27-28.

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. Visit Courtyard Fairfax Fair Oaks by April 12 to book a discounted room.

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 28 from 10:30 a.m.-noon for breakfast at Ike’s! Parents and adult family members can purchase breakfast tickets in advance online for $8 or on site for $9. All family members 12 and under are free with a paying adult.

Your Mason student and their guest(s) can register for Sibs & Kids Weekend now at! The cost is $25 for participants (ages 6-18), $15 for Mason faculty and staff, and FREE for Mason students.

In addition to breakfast on Sunday, the participant registration fee includes giveaways, a Sibs & Kids Weekend t-shirt, access to Mason Recreation facilities, lunch, games, dinner, parking for two days on the Fairfax campus, and entrance into all evening entertainment and late-night programming, including movie night at the Ridge.
