The Walsh University Alumni Office is proud to host the first ever A Cavalier Christmas!

Join us in celebrating the Christmas season at Walsh University on Saturday, December 5th! We are pleased to offer our alumni, friends and their families a socially distant outdoor Christmas event in lieu to our annual Breakfast and Brunch with Santa. Walsh alumni and the community are encouraged to bring their children to campus to enjoy festive lights, a live nativity, Christmas carols, cookies and cocoa, professional pictures with Santa, and much more! All proceeds from this event support student scholarships in the 2020 –2021 academic year.


Important Event COVID Policies

For safety purposes, we are offering two different time slots for the event - 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.

We ask that all attendees over the age of 2 wear a mask and only attend if they do not show any signs or symptoms listed below. Attendance will be limited to the first 150 reservations per time slot.

Tickets will be sold by the family this year and are $20 for a family of no more than two adults and their children or grandchildren. These changes were made out of respect for social distancing guidelines and limited event capacity. Tickets will be sold until November 20, 2020, or until sold out.

Families will have the opportunity to visit with Santa and have their picture taken by our University photographer. However, no person will be permitted to sit on or near Santa as a 6 ft. distance will be maintained for the health and safety of all. Thank you for your support!
