Fall events schedule unites Band Day, Family Weekend

The KU Special Events Committee has announced a fall schedule including Family Weekend, Band Day and an open house on Sept. 11, and Homecoming Week Oct. 4 through 9.

Family Weekend will kick off Saturday, Sept. 11, with the 57th annual Band Day and a football game against the University of Toledo. The university also will conduct an open house that day, offering an opportunity for current and prospective students, their families and the public to visit and learn more about KU.

The weekend of events also will include KU’s fifth annual Collage Concert the evening of Friday, Sept. 10. The concert is a showcase of works by KU fine arts visual- and performing-arts students and faculty in a nonstop 90-minute format.

Saturday events begin with the KU Marching Jayhawks and a parade of high school marching bands through downtown Lawrence, followed by the football game that evening.

Homecoming Week at KU will take place Oct. 4 through 9, culminating with a game on Saturday, Oct. 9, against Kansas State University.

David Shulenburger, provost and executive vice chancellor, approved the recommendations last week, according to Richard Johnson, dean of students, and Kevin Boatright, interim executive vice chancellor for university relations. Johnson and Boatright are co-chairs of the Special Events Committee.

“We worked with a variety of organizations to arrange a fall schedule that will work well for our students, their families, alumni and the whole community,” Boatright said. “We encourage everyone to save these dates and plan now to participate in some of KU’s greatest campus traditions.”

Fall events:
• Sept. 10, 11: Family Weekend, Band Day and an open house
• Oct. 4-9: Homecoming Week
