We look forward to welcoming you at the annual University of Iowa Homecoming parade on Friday, October 19, at 5:45 p.m.! Wave to Herky, see the floats, and celebrate Hawkeyes everywhere. (See the route below.)

You can grab-and-go dinner for your family before or after the parade from participating restaurants in downtown Iowa City.

Following the Homecoming Parade enjoy the Family Fun Open House hosted at the Iowa Memorial Union! There will be live music, a balloon play area, coloring, snacks, and more! This event is free and open to the public. (All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.)

After the Homecoming Parade you can also enjoy a free concert on the Pentacrest featuring Minnesota based hip-hop artist Lizzo! Her sounds draw inspiration from her background in flute and gospel. These culminate with hypnotic hip-hop beats to produce undeniably danceable hits that students and alumni will love. (Rain location: Main Lounge, IMU)
