The entire Knoxville and campus community is invited to celebrate Homecoming 2022 at the Annual Parade watch party. This year’s parade is expected to be one of the largest and, for the very first time, will feature the Tennessee Walking Horse! The ever-popular decorated floats will be on display, as well as a number of new additions to the lineup.

The parade starts on Volunteer Boulevard across from the LaPorte Track and Field Stadium. The procession will head north, passing Circle Park, where the judging will take place, and end as it passes the Joe Johnson and John Ward Pedestrian Mall.

Following the parade, meet us for a post-parade celebration. This free event will be fun for all ages and will include a performance by Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors as well as student performances. Activities include pumpkin painting, a bounce house, face painting, and more!
