The Festival

October is the most celebrated month within the HBCU tradition! It’s the most exciting time to be on campus because it’s Homecoming season; A time to celebrate the legendary history and current successes of the Institution. Unforgettable memories are made at concerts, scholarship events, convocations, food festivals and alumni gatherings all in the name of pride and appreciation for the education and experiences that occur on campus.

Every HBCU boasts about having the best Homecoming season! For students, alumni, and fans of the culture, it is impossible to choose just one. For that reason, we’ve curated a weekend where you won’t have to choose.

The BIG Homecoming will give you a combination of all the best parts of each HBCUs Homecoming, creating one place for HBCU students, alumni and supporters to gather, celebrate, and connect to enjoy the ultimate HBCU energy and soul that can’t be recreated.

We are the first festival that’s impact goes beyond just the days of the festival. We are a 365 FESTIVAL that creates impact throughout the year for HBCUs, the community and our culture.
