It is that time of year once again when the Florida A&M University (FAMU) Homecoming Parade Committee celebrates another year of fellowship and unity at FAMU. This year, we will celebrate Homecoming Week October 23-October 30, 2021. The annual Homecoming Parade will be held on October 30th beginning at the intersection of Wahnish Way and Orange Avenue and will kick-off at 8:00 a.m. Staging of all entries will begin at 6:30 a.m. Please arrive on time.
This year's parade will award three awards for overall conformity to the theme. Participants will be judged on originality, creativity, color, general eye appeal and craftsmanship based on the FAMU Experience. Only those participants that pay the required entry fee are eligible to compete for the monetary awards. The Judging Committee will determine the final placement of entries, and their decision is final.
1st Place - $600.00
2nd Place - $300.00
3rd Place - $150.00
All registered FAMU student clubs/organizations are not required to pay a registration fee but are still required to register to participate in the parade. However, if the club/organization wishes to compete for the monetary awards, they are required to pay the appropriate fee listed for their perspective unit.
