Signature Homecoming Events

Transform the Campus

On the first day of Homecoming, we cover the campus in blue and green. Show your Argo Pride by wearing your Argonaut gear, and post about #UWFHomecoming on social media to celebrate that Homecoming's here! Check out Golden Fleece contestants' window paintings, giant banners and twinkle lights at night! Look for Team Homecoming around campus to get your Homecoming swag.

Cannon Fest

This daytime picnic event on the Cannon Green is a favorite of the UWF community. Hang out with your friends, professors and staff listen to music, enjoy lunch and celebrate UWF on the Cannon Green, a special space with rich UWF history. This event includes barbecue, novelties, competitions, guest speakers, Glitter Gods and Goddesses and UWF Athletics!

Argos Give Back

Argonauts around the university can help others through various service events.


In the mythological Greek tale of Jason and the Argonauts, Colchis is the city where Jason found the Golden Fleece. At UWF, Colchis is Homecoming's signature concert event, with a different artist performing each year. Stay tuned for this year's artist! Previous Homecoming concerts have featured Waka Flocka Flame, Dan + Shay, DJ Caked Up, T-Pain, Roscoe Dash, We The Kings, Ludacris and others from various genres.

Football Tailgate and more!

On the Saturday of Homecoming be sure to join us for the football game-day extravaganza in downtown Pensacola, including the tailgate at Community Maritime Park and cheering on our Argonauts!
