Become a Participating Location or Sponsor for Homecoming 2018!

University of Montana’s Homecoming Week is more than a campus celebration —it’s a community event that brings alumni, friends and fans back to Missoula. The Homecoming Parade itself draws more than a hundred organizations as entrants and thousands of spectators who spend several hours in the downtown area.

We would like to promote your business in a way that will attract customers to shop or dine in your establishment during the high-traffic hours before, during and after the 10 a.m. Homecoming Parade and 2 p.m. Homecoming football game. The University of Montana Alumni Association and Missoula Downtown Association encourage your business to offer a limited-time special for Homecoming. The special could be a percent or dollar amount discount or a two-for-one deal to encourage customers to purchase food or merchandise.

To help promote your Homecoming Special, UMAA will feature your business as a Participating Location on the various marketing materials we distribute, including a map designating all Participating Locations. You also will receive a special Homecoming 2018 poster to proudly display at your business to let customers know you are offering a Homecoming Special at any time during Homecoming week, September 30-October 6. Download the form below and submit to UMAA no later than August 29, 2018.

In addition, UMAA would also like to offer your business the opportunity to sponsor Homecoming 2018 at the Maroon or Silver level. Silver sponsors will be listed on our website and printed materials as official Homecoming sponsors. In addition to the Silver sponsorship benefits, Maroon sponsors also will be featured in a quarter-page ad in our 2018 Homecoming newsletter that is mailed to nearly 7,000 UMAA members and friends who come back for Homecoming.
