Pajamarino dates back to 1912 when pajama-clad students sneaked out of their dorms to greet returning alumni at the train station the night before Homecoming. Nowadays, Pajamarino starts with a parade — and this year’s parade has a new starting point (Vanderhoef Quad, south campus) and a new ending point (E Street Plaza between Second and Third streets in downtown Davis). This family friendly and pajama-friendly event is open to all: students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members.

  • 4 p.m. — Gather on the Vanderhoef Quad for free pizza and ice cream (and free T-shirts for the first 300 guests).
  • 4:30 p.m. — Pajamarino Parade begins. See map here.
  • 5 p.m. — Parade arrives at the E Street Plaza, where the Pajamarino Homecoming Pep Rally will be incorporated into the Davis Chamber of Commerce’s Discover Davis celebration, which starts at 4:30 and ends at 7:30.
Entertainment will include the Cal Aggie Marching Band-uh! and the UC Davis Spirit Squad's Dance and Cheer teams, as well as a mascot dance-off.
