Centennial Celebration

Centennial: Get Involved

We have a year full of exciting events, activities and fun! 

Check out the list of Centennial Events and be sure to visit often for updates. Below are just a few ways you can be a part of the celebration!

Hometown Celebrations
We want to bring the celebration to you and your hometown! So whether it's at the Burger Fest in Seymour, WI, the Karner Blue Butterfly Festival in Black River Falls or the Cheese Festival in Pine Island, MN, join your fellow alumni on a UWRF CAFES Centennial float in your annual hometown Festival parade! The float can be as simple as a tractor pulling a hay wagon – perfect for holding you, fellow alumni and your families. We'll provide the banners for the float and help enlist alumni in your area to be on the float. 

If you are interested in being on a float in your hometown parade, email us at

Decorate for our Birthday!
Celebrate our birthday by putting up banners or balloons in your field, yard, on your front porch or even at your workplace. See how many fellow alumni are nearby that you may not have even known about! We'll supply the Centennial banners and balloons. To celebrate our birthday on campus, faculty and staff will treat CAFES' students to birthday cake!

If you want to show your Falcon pride, we'll send you a banner and/or balloons to display! Email us at

Tractors on Parade
Coming back to campus for Homecoming in 2012? See the Tractors on Parade that will be part of the Homecoming Parade, or better yet, bring your vintage tractor and join the parade! Whether you favor red, green, or're all invited!

If you are interested in bringing your tractor for the parade please email us at
