Information

Whether this is your first #UBCHomecoming or 71st join your friends and thousands of screaming fans as generations of Thunderbirds come together to celebrate at UBC’s largest school spirit event of the year. This is the university experience you have always dreamed of. After last year’s record-breaking attendance of 8,000 fans, the first ever sold out Winter Classic, and a few surprises still to be announced we are on track, to sell out the stadium for the largest homecoming celebration in generations. After a big breakfast at home with friends or family, head to campus for a day of collegiate revelry. Take a walk down memory lane and remember the good old days, or start the festivities early at one of the many student pre-parties. March to Thunderbird Stadium in the Homecoming Trek with hundreds of festive revelers and watch the crowd get bigger and bigger at each stop. Once you arrive at the Official Homecoming Street Party get your hands on some refreshments before exploring the fair. Try your luck at one of the giant inflatable games, pick up some new thunderbird gear, get yourself face painted and get tickets early for 2017’s big surprise. And then find your seat early and get ready for the opening ceremony with president Santa Ono and the halftime show preview and meet & greet with Halftime Frisbee Dogs. Pre-parties start at 1PM, Trek leaves the fountain at 2:30PM, Street Party starts at 3PM, and Kick Off is at 5PM H O M E C O M I N G T R E K + P R E - P A R T I E S Check back for a full schedule of events!
