GRADUATION DAY

When is Graduation?

The Walk Through Graduation ceremony is scheduled for Friday, June 3, 2022 from 9 to 11am.

What will Graduation look like this year?

We'll be having a walk-through graduation at the Glendale Civic Center this year.

Graduates will be able to have any number of guests when they walk across the stage.

Graduates will need to wait until all guests are present before entering. They will check in at the check in table, proceed a photo op in the lobby, then proceed through the main hall to walk across the stage, receive their diploma, and shake hands with the principal. Guests will be with the graduate until just before they walk across the stage and will have "front row" visibility to take as many photos as you wish. Afterwards, guests will meet up with their graduate in the terrace garden for additional photo opportunities and visiting.

How many guests can I bring?

We are allowing an unlimited number of guests for graduation, however, all guests must be present before the graduate can enter the event. Graduates can wait in the parking lot or just outside the building to wait for their guests.

Is there parking available?

Yes! There is plenty of free parking available in lots and a structure nearby the Civic Center.

Can I bring balloons?

No, our venue does not allow balloons inside. Feel free to leave these in your vehicle or outside the venue.

Can I bring/use confetti poppers?

No, our venue does not allow confetti or confetti poppers inside or around the venue due to the difficult cleanup. We recommend saving these for home photo shoots and celebrations.

Can I bring snacks or drinks in while we wait?

No, the venue does not allow any outside food or drinks to be brought in. There are water fountains available in the hallways of the venue.

Feel free to leave snacks and drinks in your vehicle.
