The anticipation is building as we approach WKU Homecoming 2023 themed “Big Red, White and Blue,” and this year promises to be unlike any other! With new and exciting additions to the festivities, the heart of the Friday evening celebration is moving to Downtown BG’s Fountain Row Entertainment District, making it the perfect backdrop for the Big Red’s Roar pep rally and beyond!
Homecoming has always been a time for alumni, students, and the Bowling Green community to come together, but this year, there’s an extra buzz in the air! Taking the party to the Fountain Row Entertainment District is a game-changer. This vibrant area has undergone a remarkable transformation with new businesses, entertainment venues, and a lively atmosphere that will make Homecoming 2023 unforgettable.
The Fountain Row Entertainment District has quickly become the go-to spot for dining and entertainment in Bowling Green. With a diverse array of restaurants, bars, and shops, you’ll find something to suit every taste. You can even purchase to-go alcoholic drinks in designated cups from participating licensed businesses within its boundaries. Participate in our Passport Adventure and Window Decorating Contest while you listen to the deejay and wait for the parade to arrive.
One of the most anticipated Homecoming events, the “Big Red, White, and Blue” parade, is taking on a whole new dimension this year. At 5:30 PM, the parade will begin at Cherry Hall and continue down College Street to Fountain Square making the downtown area a perfect place to watch the parade! Expect to see impressive floats, WKU Big Red Marching Band, and familiar faces from the past and present.
Homecoming has always been about reconnecting with old friends, creating new memories, and celebrating the WKU Spirit with the BG community. Downtown BG’s Fountain Row Entertainment District enhances this sense of togetherness beginning at 4:00 PM and continuing throughout the evening. It’s your chance to celebrate “Big Red, White and Blue “ honoring our veterans and continuing through the Bowling Green Veterans Day parade on Saturday, November 11.
