Odum Homecoming History

The present-day annual Odum Homecoming event had its beginning with the Bicentennial Celebration in December 1976. The homecoming theme had its birth at the Labor Day Festival in 1977. This event was started as a part of the Governor's Project competition; the Odum community took third place.

In 1978, the homecoming was celebrated on the Fourth of July. This celebration combined with a beautification project and other events enabled the community to capture first place in the Governor's Project competition. In 1979, the community decided to move the homecoming celebration to the first weekend in October because the weather was more favorable.
