There used to be a tradition of holding homecoming bonfires. Aggie songs were sung at this event. As of Fall 2009 the homecoming bonfire has been suspended "partly due to its toll on the environment, and also in an effort to move the homecoming festivities to a location that will involve more of the City of Davis."

History of Past Bonfires:

Share in the Aggie Spirit during homecoming. Members of the campus community, wearing pajamas, enjoy the Cal Aggie Marching Band-uh! as they meet alumni returning by train for homecoming. Parading through downtown, the group will head to the bonfire and watch the marching band, the UC Davis Spirit Squad and the Aggie Pack pump up the crowd on the eve of the homecoming football game. Organized by the Student Alumni Association
