CANCELED: Homecoming Porch Party

November 2, 2018 | 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Nelson Hall Front Porch

Due to the forecast for potential severe weather and high winds up to 35 miles an hour predicted for Friday afternoon, the Porch Party and the Parade are canceled. Let’s plan to have twice as much fun next year!

Join NC State University and Poole College of Management at our signature event, the 15th annual Homecoming Porch Party. The Porch Party is the premier watch spot for the NC State Homecoming parade that begins at 6 p.m. and ends at Nelson Hall.

Enjoy with fellow alumni and their families, students, faculty, staff and friends on the front steps of Nelson Hall:

  • Refreshments
  • BBQ
  • Bluegrass music
  • Photo booth
  • Games in the Kids Zone

The Porch Party is part of the Red and White Week, the week of October 28 through November 3, celebrating NC State Homecoming. Red and White Week is NC State’s biggest annual celebration, when we call the whole wide Wolfpack back to campus.

We are proud to partner with the Colleges of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Design, Education, Humanities and Social Sciences, Natural Resources, Sciences and Textiles this year to host this signature Homecoming event.
