The Game Weekend
On the second Saturday in November of each year, Woodberry plays its rival, Episcopal High School, at Johnson Stadium. This year will be the 120th meeting between the two schools. Many families come to Woodberry to participate in the weekend’s activities, the details of which follow. We require all students to attend the game, and many will depart from the game Saturday to stay overnight with their parents.

Following the Bonfire Bash, the Woodberry community, along with visiting guests, will gather at the bonfire. The bonfire is the ultimate Woodberry pep rally and a tradition the boys love. Expect to be amazed by the energy — and the heat! Should you choose to attend, you will stand in the field with other guests and watch the action. The dress code is “festive casual” — wear your orange and black! Be prepared for cool or wet weather; rain boots are often a good idea as our fields can be muddy.
