Homecoming

109th Annual Homecoming Celebration

The Ohio State Homecoming Parade is one of Ohio State's biggest and longest-running traditions. Student organization floats, colleges, departments, community organizations, and local celebrities are all a part of this great tradition. Students, Alumni, OSU Family, and Friends are invited to attend! 

Pre-Parade festivities begin Friday, October 8, 2021, at 5:00 pm in the Northwest Stadium Parking Lot including free food, inflatables, and carnival games and the Parade starts at 6:00 pm beginning at Ohio Stadium and ending at the Ohio Union.

Be sure to stick around after the parade! In partnership with the Ohio Union Activities Board, Office of Student Life, and CAS we are proud to present a firework display beginning at 8:30 pm! The main viewing location will be in the Northwest Stadium Parking Lot on North Campus!
