John Carroll Weekend

John Carroll Weekend

Since 1952, John Carroll Weekend has traveled to a different city each year, gathering the local Georgetown community and alumni, students, faculty, parents, family members and friends from around the globe to celebrate the best of Georgetown.  The weekend of educational, social, and cultural events offers participants the chance to engage with one another and with Georgetown’s outstanding faculty and university leaders, and to learn more about the host city.

JCW 2024 will take place in Dublin, Ireland. Learn more about JCW and next year’s location at

Alumni, university leaders, renowned faculty, and friends of the university will spend four days together experiencing Dublin’s diverse arts and music scene, compelling history, and world-famous scenery. On the final evening of John Carroll Weekend Dublin, we will recognize the 2024 John Carroll and Patrick Healy awardees.
