An all-new way to experience Baylor Homecoming with the Baylor Family. Join us for a four-day event full of virtual content, a premier dinner, food trucks, concerts, and tailgating. You won’t believe what all we’ve packed into the first ever Onward! Festival.
Each year, hundreds of Bears from all over the world descend on Waco for Baylor Homecoming. Reunions, football, tailgating, and more make the weekend memorable year-after-year. This time, there’s a new way to experience the excitement of Homecoming and it won’t be complete without YOU!
Introducing: Onward! Festival. A four-day event full of Baylor Family fun to unite, energize, and enrich your experience with fellow Bears at Homecoming.
ONWARD! FESTIVAL EVENTS FOR EVERYONE
Financial support from members of our Torchbearer Program enable students to explore the many opportunities Baylor has to offer. Members of Torchbearers are generous, committed, full of Green & Gold pride, and the lifeblood of our organization. That’s why we celebrate these extremely generous Bears several times a year with special Torchbearer Dinners. Want to be in attendance? Reach out to find out how.
VIRTUAL ANNUAL MEETING
Continuing on from the success of our 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting, this is your time to catch up on all-things Baylor Line and hear about what’s coming up for the Baylor Family. Presented to you live from our downtown Waco offices, we’ll send out a Zoom link ahead of this event to those who subscribe to our newsletter. Don’t miss out. Make sure you’re subscribed today.
ONWARD! BLOCK PARTY
A first for the Baylor Family, this highlight of our inaugural Onward! Festival is the reunion you’ve been waiting for. Commune with Bears from across the generations — classmates, old friends, and new acquaintances — at this food-truck-fest-meets-concert. Located in the parking lot of the new Baylor Line Offices at 600 Austin Ave. (that’s at 6th St. & Austin Ave.), we’re planning a true blow-out. In the parking lot will be several food trucks, a full bar, a killer cover band, and enough tables for everybody to hand out for the afternoon. Tickets will get you a $5 food voucher, a free drink, and kids (12 & under) meals are free.
HOMECOMING PARADE POP-UP
Come watch the oldest Homecoming parade in history from the “front steps” of the Baylor Line Offices at 600 Austin Ave. (that’s at 6th St. & Austin Ave.). We’ll have a few local breakfast options catering and good coffee to get you going for all the fun ahead of us as the Bears take on BYU. Purchase a ticket in advance and your breakfast is on us!
One of our favorite traditions (and one we especially missed last year) is back and better! Join the Baylor Family at the Texas Sports Hall of Fame for a tailgate you won’t forget. Good (but-not-good-for-ya) food, beer, football, and fellow Bears! What more could you want? Tickets will get you a $5 food voucher, a free drink, and kids (12 & under) meals are free.
