The date has now been set and planning is about to get underway for the next Queen’s Homecoming weekend. It will officially take place Oct. 19-21.

This year, Queen’s will be welcoming alumni from classes ending in 3 or 8, as well as all Queen’s Tricolour Guard who are celebrating 50 or more years since their graduation.

Over the coming months, the university will work with alumni, students, staff, faculty, and city partners to confirm all of the programming and event details. As always, the busy fall weekend will also feature a football game at Richardson Stadium where the Gaels will play the University of Ottawa Gee-Gees.

“We are looking forward to Homecoming weekend as it brings together past and present students, friends, and supporters to celebrate Queen’s and what it means to be part of such a great community,” says Principal Daniel Woolf. “To help prepare for its many events we will also be collaborating closely with our community partners to find ways to mitigate potential problems, such as unsanctioned street parties, and to ensure that a safe and fun-filled weekend is had by all.”
