Homecoming Parade & Court
There is a lot of excitement around Homecoming 2019 at Kent State.
Plans are underway! Don’t miss this year’s festivities.
Each year, Homecoming brings unparalleled excitement to campus. The parade and announcement of Kent State royalty are two of the signature events that make Homecoming weekend so special.
The Kent State Homecoming parade will feature floats, Kent State and local high school marching bands, university colleges and departments, Kent State cheerleaders and athletes, student organizations, local officials, and more! The grand marshal and homecoming court anchor the parade, which steps off at 10 a.m. from the corner of Midway Drive and Main Street.
All are welcome to watch the parade by “The Rock” on Front Campus.
Sponsored by the Kent State Alumni Association, the hospitality tent will serve a continental breakfast from 9 - 10 a.m.
Kent State will feature representatives from across the eight-campus system to make up the 2019 Homecoming Courts. The Homecoming Courts on every campus will take part in the Homecoming parade and the Homecoming Royalty will be announced during halftime of the football game.
