There are a variety of unique homecoming themes to choose from. Students will choose their theme, and they have a variety of options from history to current events to fantasy to stars.
The Homecoming dance is the culmination of all the events that lead up to it. Mood and tone are set by the theme.
Picking Unique Homecoming Themes

How to Pick the Best High School Homecoming Themes
The best themes are those that allow for maximum creativity. Each class needs to be able to come up with an idea based on the overall theme. If the theme is ‘Worlds of Fantasy,’ the senior class might study the world of J.R.R. Tolkien, while the juniors study the mysteries of Star Wars, and the sophomores explore Disney. The theme must be incorporated into everything from spirit week to the pep rally, to the game, the parades, and of course, the dance.
Choosing Your Homecoming Theme
The theme should be chosen by considering the floats and shows that can be built around it. It’s not the best choice to choose a Roman theme if the school frowns on togas and nude statues. It is also possible to illuminate a cause through charitable themes.
After Hurricane Katrina, Mardi Gras and Bourbon Street were popular homecoming themes. Through their homecoming activities, many high schools raised money for Katrina victims. Take a look at other school dance themes to see if any might be suitable for your homecoming.
