The parade will start on 13th Street and Woodlawn Avenue and head down Woodlawn to 17th Street. Kick off the weekend with this iconic family-friendly event!
Parking on campus and in Bloomington can be a breeze when you know what to expect; however, things might get a little tricky Homecoming weekend. Visit the Office of Parking Operations’ webpage for a campus map and additional info.
Parking Pro Tips:
- Steer clear of spots that say “24-hour tow away” on campus.
- Parking is free in IU parking garages all day Saturday and Sunday.
- Cars parked overnight Friday in a Memorial Stadium lot will be ticketed and towed.
The parking lots around Memorial Stadium and the grass tailgating fields open five hours prior to kickoff. Traffic to Bloomington and around town will be heavy, so allow plenty of time to get here.
Don’t forget: Tents and large tarps, glass bottles, and kegs are not permitted. For more tailgating and game-day policies, visit the Memorial Stadium Policies webpage.
Fans can gather two hours and 15 minutes prior to kickoff on the east side of Memorial Stadium to show their support for the Hoosiers as they take their pre-game walk. The Marching Hundred and the cheerleaders will lead the singing of “Indiana, Our Indiana.”
Stadium gates open 90 minutes prior to kickoff. The pre-game show begins 20 minutes prior to kickoff, and is followed by the national anthem approximately five minutes later.
IU Athletics follows a clear bag policy, which is similar to other collegiate venues and NFL stadiums. For bag guidelines and restrictions, head to the IU Athletics Bag Policy webpage.
