CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – The University of Northern Iowa is looking ahead to UNI Homecoming 2023, which will welcome alumni and their families back to Cedar Falls to celebrate with students and community members during the week of October 16-21.

The fun-filled week of activities will culminate with the annual homecoming parade, which will once again be held in downtown Cedar Falls on October 21. The University of Northern Iowa is excited to partner with Community Main Street and KWWL to celebrate all things purple and gold. The theme for this year’s parade is “Panther Country.” 

“Homecoming marks an annual opportunity for the entire community to celebrate UNI,” said Pete Moris, director of university relations. “We’re excited to invite everyone to downtown Cedar Falls to stake their claim in Panther Country as the homecoming parade makes its way down Main Street on Saturday, October 21.” 

Mark your calendars to join us in Cedar Falls for an exciting week filled with food and fun at various community and alumni events!  We look forward to sharing more information about all the exciting homecoming events and you can follow along on our homecoming website, homecoming.uni.edu/
