Goodell Lawn, Student Union Lawn, & Old Chapel
UMass Amherst campus

Be PROUD and LOUD with alumni, families, and friends at our second annual Homecoming Block Party. No matter your age or interests, this party has something for everyone!

Dance to live music on the Goodell and Student Union lawns, devour tasty eats from our UMass food trucks, toast s’mores at the fire pits, jump on inflatables, or create your own work of art at one of our many craft stations.

Take a break from the outdoor fun and head into the Old Chapel to enjoy wine, beer, and spirits while connecting with classmates.

Special appearances by Sam the Minuteman, the UMass Cheerleaders, and Bloodsport, the combat robot brainchild of Justin Marple ’17 made famous on the Discovery Channel’s show Battlebots.

Look for your school, college, or group tent to reconnect and see what's new. Confirmed groups to date include CMASS, the College of Natural Sciences, and Isenberg School of Management.

All are welcome to attend.

Sign up early—registration will close on October 18.
