Lighting of the Lawn
DEC 05, 2019 7:00 PM

Join the UVa Community for the annual Lighting of the Lawn, a beloved and shimmering spectacle that famously rings in the holiday season by illuminating the Academical Village with thousands of lights. Festivities will feature a cappella and dance groups, culminating in an elaborate musical light show.

Join us as the Batten community gathers to celebrate our annual Franksgiving Feast. We’ll provide the meat, please bring a side dish or dessert to share. Head to the Lawn afterward for Lighting of the Lawn!


All current Batten students, faculty, and staff are invited to join us for what we hope will become a signature community event sponsored Dean Solomon. Our goal is to bring together the Batten community for a 2-hour service project, followed by a festive end-of-semester celebration at the Boar’s Head.
