Homecoming 2017

DATE: October 12 - 15, 2017

Acadia’s annual Homecoming Weekend is only days away! We have a lot planned and we know you don’t want to miss a thing.

Run in the 105th annual Bulmer Race; get down at the Exit 10 hosted by Rob ‘The Pope’ McGregor (’87); show your pride as former athletes are inducted into the Sports Hall of Fame; scarf a burger at the Backyard BBQ hosted by the Acadia Alumni Association; sign up for Reunion festivities; show us how sophisticated you are at Sunday Music in the Garden Room; or feed your soul at the Chapel service featuring guest speaker Dr. Diemo Landgraf.

All of the above, plus a line-up of exciting varsity sports headlined by the football game at 2 p.m. on Saturday afternoon. Help us cheer on our Axemen as they battle the StFX X-Men!

Join us on campus for some beautiful Valley fun. For more, check out the full schedule below.

See you there!
