You don’t have to miss homecoming season, because it isn’t going anywhere! A new favorite is One Yard, an immersive homecoming experience produced by the Urban One team. With a fun website, long list of featured artists and entertainers, and exciting events, this is something you won’t want to miss! Enjoy all the events September 25-November 1.
One Yard began September 25th with Yardfest. Keshia Knight Pulliam served as One Yard’s Grand Marshall to this inaugural and fun concert. Jade Novah headlined, bringing her skills as an actress, singer, and comedian to the stage for the ultimate experience.
One Yard had to bring out actor Lance Gross to host the Step Off competition on October 3rd. As a Howard alum, he knew how to keep the momentum going! This step show had three exciting competition rounds between Divine 9 greek fraternities and sororities. Representing were members of Alpha Phi Alpha, Alpha Kappa Alpha, Zeta Phi Beta, Phi Beta Sigma, Omega Psi Phi, and Iota Phi Theta.
Saturday October 10th was the delicious Cook Out featuring Keshia Knight Pulliam and Kev On Stage. Using fresh and healthy ingredients, Keshia showed Kev how to make her famous Vegan Chili. You can even find her recipe on the One Yard site!
On October 24th get ready to face the music with the Battle of the Beats! Everyone wants the number one spot, and there will be three fierce rounds of competition before a winner can be crowned. It will be hosted by a surprise HBCU alum, so be sure to stay tuned!
The final event is the delicious Sunday Brunch, which I’m sure none of us want to miss! On November 1st, actor, write, producer, and Morehouse graduate George 2.0 will host this day of food, friends, and games.
