Flag twirlers lead the University of Kansas marching band during the 2014 KU Homecoming Parade, Friday, Sept. 26 2014, in downtown Lawrence.

University of Kansas alumni can mark their calendars for a return to campus this fall.

KU will celebrate its 109th Homecoming Oct. 13-16, according to a press release from the KU Alumni Association. The four days of events will culminate on Saturday, Oct. 16, with a home football game against Texas Tech University.

This year’s Homecoming will likely have both virtual and in-person events, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. More information about Homecoming weekend — such as a theme and a finalized schedule of events — will come out later this year. The KU Alumnni Association and the Student Alumni Leadership Board are working together to plan the events.

Information about Homecoming weekend will be updated on kualumni.org/homecoming as more information becomes available.
