America's Friendliest College Town is also home to the nation's largest homecoming celebration. Each year, the theme (which is announced nearly a year before festivities begin) resonates throughout a week of traditional activities gearing up for the big game. The 2018 theme, "Cowboys Ride On" will be incorporated in each aspect of the friendly competitions taking place from October 21-27th.
Homecoming 2018 begins in Stillwater, Oklahoma with the Cowboy Stampede Rodeo on October 11th followed by events such as the Dyeing of the Fountain, Walkaround, and the Sea of Orange Parade.
Residents and students prepare for months on end to make OSU Homecoming a memorable celebration for returning alumni and visitors!
