While the feeling of celebrating Homecoming in Lexington is incredibly special, we understand not everyone can make it back to their Old Kentucky Home to celebrate this annual tradition in person. That’s why we are providing events and experiences for alumni and friends to participate in Homecoming and spread Wildcat cheer from wherever they are.

Examples of Homecoming Themes

We love a good theme, especially during Homecoming! Check out the examples during Homecoming Week and get in the spirit as we celebrate what it means to be a Wildcat. Remember to follow your favorite University of Kentucky accounts on social media and use the official hashtag #UKHomecoming in all of your posts.
