UK Alumni Association Homecoming Tailgate Tent Party at EKU Game

The UK Alumni Association invites alumni and fans to a Homecoming tailgate tent party at 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3, before the Wildcats take on Eastern Kentucky University. The event is hosted in conjunction with the colleges of Dentistry, Medicine and Pharmacy.

The party will be at the Tobacco Research Lawn at the corner of Cooper and University drives. There will be a barbecue meal along with exciting games, face painting, entertainment, giveaways and a performance from the UK Pep Band. We will be celebrating 100 years of Homecoming and all members will receive a commemorative gift. The event is sponsored by Liberty Mutual.  

The cost is $5 for UK Alumni Association members and $10 for nonmembers who preregister. Children ages 10 and under are admitted free. A limited number of walk-ups will be admitted at the event for $10 but only while food supplies last.

Register here. For questions about the event, please contact Jill Smith at or 859-257-8906.
