Alabama State University will host its inaugural Labor Day Classic Alumni Weekend on September 1-3, 2017.  The weekend reignites one of the oldest football rivalries, bringing fans and alumni of Tuskegee University and ASU to Montgomery.

“ASU is elated to continue the ASU/Tuskegee tradition on Labor Day weekend,” said Zillah Fluker, vice president of ASU’s Institutional Advancement. “A fun-filled schedule of events has been planned to help us celebrate the renewal of the rivalry and our 150-year anniversary. We are already hearing from excited Hornets from across the country; so, we encourage everyone to make your plans early.”

Some of the many events include an Alumni Luncheon, an Old School Yard Fest, tailgate parties, the Nat King Cole Society Jazz Festival and, of course, the football game. See below for a full schedule of events and make the plans to be here for all the fun.
