Any staff member may elect to attend the TGFS After Dark, our annual evening program tailored for alternate shift workers. This event will be held on Tuesday, May 7, 2024, from 8 - 10:30 p.m., at the UC Davis Health Stadium, in the Bruce Edwards Room and along the top part of the concourse. TGFS After Dark will be held exclusively on accessible paved surfaces, and we anticipate a smaller crowd of around 400 attendees.

We are committed to ensuring that both events are inclusive and accessible to all staff members. Should you require any accommodations or have specific accessibility needs, please contact us at in advance, and we will do our best to assist you.

Thank you for being part of the UC Davis community, and we look forward to celebrating with you at the Thank Goodness for Staff Picnic and TGFS After Dark events!
