The UMass Amherst Alumni Association is your guide to Homecoming 2009. Don your maroon and white as you travel back to the valley for cookouts, concerts, school and college reunions, and UMass vs. UNH football.

The festivities heat up on Friday, October 16, with the 35th Annual Multibands Pops Concert. Kick off the weekend with a veritable smorgasbord of music from the Chamber Choir to the Mass Marimba Ensembles, the Minuteman Marching Band, University Orchestra, and more.

Don’t miss the Alumni Association Tailgate Tent at McGuirk Alumni Stadium on Saturday, October 17.

Enjoy a traditional New England cookout with fellow alumni and fans before heading off to cheer the Minutemen on to victory. Be a part of the tradition and show your UMass Amherst pride! A complete listing of Homecoming events and registration details can be found at
