University of Idaho Homecoming

Homecoming is one of our institution's longest running traditions and 2020 will mark its 112th year. It is a time when we come together as a community to celebrate being Vandals and, even though we are in a time of uncertainty, the Vandal Family is strong and resilient. Homecoming will look different this year, but the week-long festivities will still feature student competitions, a campus office decorating competition, homecoming royalty selection, community service, downtown decorating and a “Walk & Wave” parade, all of which will culminate in the Fireworks Extravaganza!

We are excited this year to offer a hybrid of in-person and virtual homecoming events during the week of October 4-10. Tune in and take part in traditions and activities you can enjoy with classmates and friends around the world. See below for all the details. Some virtual meetings and events require pre-registration. (All times PDT.)
