Homecoming Parade, Pep Fest and Spartan Spirit Day: Friday, Oct. 8

Friday, October 8, is Spartan Spirit Day! All Orono students are encouraged to wear red and blue. The Homecoming Parade will begin at 1:10 p.m. Each building will manage dismissal and students will remain in their classroom pods. Parents/guardians and community members are invited to watch the parade from the corner of Old Crystal Bay Rd. and Parking Lot D near the Activities Center. Following the parade, all K-8 students will return to class.

The Homecoming Pep Fest, following the parade, will be limited to Orono High School students, staff and to parents whose children are participating in the Pep Fest. Thank you for your understanding. 

Homecoming Game vs. Chaska

We have been thrilled with the turnout at recent football games! However, it is important for us to manage our ticket sales, consider seating capacity (2,550) in the stadium, and prioritize the safety of workers, spectators, and all event participants. Please purchase your tickets early!

The ticketing process is fast and easy and makes game-day entry efficient for event supervisors. Ticket prices are $7 for adults and $5 for students and senior citizens. The ticket site adds a $1 service fee to the purchase. Please use this link to purchase tickets:
