About Pow Wow

FSU’s Homecoming Pow Wow, sponsored by the Student Government Association, is an annual evening of entertainment and laughter held on the night before Florida State University’s Homecoming football game. Since the inaugural 1948 pep rally, Pow Wow has evolved into a full night of events. Hosted by the voice of the Seminoles, Mr. Gene Deckerhoff, Pow Wow features performances by the FSU cheerleaders, the Golden Girls, the Flying High Circus, the Marching Chiefs, and various other student organizations.

Pow Wow culminates with a headlining comedian.
