BRISTOL, Tenn., Jan. 17, 2014 - Before you know it, King University’s 88th annual Dogwood Weekend will be upon us. Dogwood Weekend, which will take place April 11-13, brings alumni and friends together to celebrate and reminisce all things King.

During the week leading up to Dogwood, KU will be celebrating its first Student Spirit Week April 7-11, which will include daily activities and games and an undergraduate research poster session in the E.W. King Library. 

This year Dogwood Weekend events will include King’s Theatre Department’s production of “The Tale of the Mandarin Ducks” based on the book by King’s own alumna Katherine Paterson, and the choral production of “The True Story of Cinderella.” There will also be presentation of the Dogwood Court and King and Queen on the Oval, parade of the Court, along with the Dogwood Ball. Former Dogwood Kings and Queens are encouraged to attend and be recognized.
