Registration Open for Return of UM Homecoming Parade

UM Alumni Band marches in Homecoming Parade.

MISSOULA – The University of Montana Alumni Association is now accepting registrations for the 2022 Homecoming Parade.

Participants will be invited to celebrate and honor this year's theme – Might of Montana.

The parade will return after a two-year hiatus on Saturday, Sept. 24. Registration to participate in the parade is $50 through Aug. 30 and $75 beginning on Sept. 1.

Members of the public can register a float or reserve a space to walk in the parade on the UM Alumni Association webpage.

“We are thrilled this beloved tradition is returning to our community,” said LeAnn Meyer, UM director of alumni relations. “As we welcome thousands of alumni and friends to celebrate during this festive week, we know the might of Montana will be roaring.”

Due to ongoing construction on the Beartracks Bridge, the parade this year will be re-routed along South Avenue. More details on the parade staging and route will be available next month.
