Epic all-day celebration commemorates the Longhorns’ inaugural day in the Southeastern Conference

S.E.C. Celebration across the Forty Acres. Free Admission.

The UT Tower will shine with burnt orange lights and “SEC” displayed on its sides Sunday, June 30 as part of the SEC Celebration across the Forty Acres.

The Tower’s special lighting configuration and the campus-wide celebration commemorate the Longhorns’ inaugural day in the Southeastern Conference

Among the day’s highlights will be the official SEC Ceremony at the Tower Stage at 8:30 p.m., featuring SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey, Chairman of the University of Texas System Board of Regents Kevin Eltife, President Jay Hartzell, and Vice President and Lois and Richard Folger Athletics Director Chris Del Conte. This ceremony will mark a historic moment as the Longhorns are officially welcomed into the SEC and will be followed by a spectacular fireworks show from the UT Tower.

“UT’s move to the Southeastern Conference is an extraordinary moment for Texas Athletics, Longhorn Nation and our entire University. It is only fitting that we celebrate this occasion with a Texas-sized party on the Forty Acres, open to all,” Hartzell said. “We are excited to bring our passion, history and commitment to excellence to our new conference, and this event will be a chance to highlight the University’s winning tradition and all it means to be a Longhorn.”

Located in the heart of the “Live Music Capital of the World,” the SEC Celebration will feature star-studded concerts on the Tower Stage, including a headlining performance at 9 p.m. by a to-be-announced global superstar. Live music will kick off at 5:30 p.m.
