Show us how you Panther

October 21-26, 2024

Panthers come in all forms. We’re teachers, accountants, entrepreneurs and social workers. We’re artistic, athletic, outdoorsy and adventurous. We are as varied and unique as the thousands who bear the title. But most of all, we’re purple for life!

To celebrate the unique ways panthers show their pride, Cedar Falls tourism launched Panthers on Parade this year, a project where Cedar Valley businesses and organizations partnered with local artists to showcase all of the ways our community exemplifies the panther spirit. Now it’s your turn!

Join us Oct. 21-26 as we celebrate all of our unique students, alumni, family, fans and friends during the variety of Homecoming 2024 activities. There is something for everyone!

  • Watch the UNI Panthers show their prowess as the football team takes on Missouri State and volleyball hosts Evansville.
  • Take in a show as UNI’s Gallagher Bluedorn collaborates with several local organizations in a production of The Music Man.
  • See how campus and community groups showcase their panther spirit as we celebrate Panthers on Parade during the parade.
  • Explore the community to find the Panthers on Parade statues all around the Cedar Valley.
  • And much more!

Watch for ways leading up to and during Homecoming to show what makes you a panther!
