Ohio University Homecoming 2021

Every Bobcat’s favorite weekend of the year is right around the corner! This October, Ohio University Homecoming 2021 is taking place the week of the 4th through the 9th on Uptown Athens’s unforgettable red brick streets.

If you’re a Bobcat, or you have close family or friends who hold that same value, you know that Ohio University Homecoming is no small Athens celebration. Each year, the eventful week includes an annual Homecoming parade and pep rally, the Homecoming football game and tailgate, early morning hours at the bars on Court Street, and the reconnection of generations of Bobcats everywhere!

This year in the Fall of 2021, Athens is excited to celebrate Homecoming in person on the Ohio University Athens campus. There will be both in-person and virtual events for those who can’t attend. The word on the (Court) street is that some virtual events during the week of celebrations will include cooking, trivia, a mixology event, and even a parade party! All virtual events will be put on by the Ohio University Alumni Association.

This Year’s Celebration Plans

During the best week of the year at Ohio University (some may say), there are always multiple events going on each day of the week between student organizations, Greek life, and traditions that have been upheld for years. There’s always something fun to attend during this week that reminds Bobcats of our unity with fellow alumni.

2021 Ohio University Homecoming weekend this October will consist of fun and entertaining activities for everyone, including a virtual trivia night on Tuesday to kick off the week. Virtual trivia will be followed by virtual panel discussions, and a virtual cooking demonstration on Wednesday. Thursday will follow the virtual events with the in-person Yell Like Hell pep rally, and a virtual mixology event on Friday. Grab your favorite Athens pint glasses or shot glasses to celebrate from home!

The rest of Homecoming Weekend 2021 and the main events of the week will occur on Saturday, October 9th. The entire day is packed full of both in-person and virtual activities for every Bobcat student and alumnus.

To kick off the exciting day, don’t miss out on the Homecoming 2021 Parade down Court Street! See all of the different organizations and groups of people that make up Athens parading down Uptown Athens, including the Marching 110 Band, local Athens artists, and more!

Following the parade will be a virtual parade party featuring DJ A-Roc, the Bobcat Bash Tailgate (in-person) near the Peden Stadium, and finally, the 2021 Ohio University Homecoming Football game.

On game day this year, Ohio University’s football team will be playing Central Michigan on Athens’s home turf at Peden Stadium at 3:30 p.m. Attend the game with all of your college friends in your favorite Ohio University gear and celebrate homecoming like you never left!
