The Homecoming Parade is an annual tradition that features the KSU Marching Owls leading a procession of floats, banners, decorated vehicles, the Homecoming Court, and in some years, a bath tub. This year, the parade will be Saturday October 21st, and will start approximately three and half hours before kickoff for the Homecoming football game against Gardner-Webb.

The route for the 2017 Homecoming Parade will start from the Perch off of Big Shanty Rd and head West to George Busbee Pkwy, then down Busbee Dr, ending at the Green Lot. See the complete route here: Parade Route 2017

For guest who are parking for the football game, all of the lots adjacent to the stadium will be convenient for viewing the parade along Busbee Pkwy (Fanzone) or down Busbee Dr. If you are not parking in one of the stadium lots for the football game, the best viewing area would be down Big Shanty between the intersection with Busbee Pkwy and the Perch (local parking available).

Groups that are interested in participating in the 2017 KSU Homecoming Parade will need to fill out a Participation Form by October 4th at 5:00pm. For questions about participating in the parade or the form, please contact Drew Harvill at:
