HomeComing first started off as a picnic in 2008, commonly known as HomeComing Picnic. At the end of 2015 transitioned the already successful picnic into a day and night festival titled HomeComing Picnic, The End of An Era. The following year as the start of a new era, HCE hosted the first HomeComing Africa festival. In 2017 HCE expanded the HCA festival from the 2016 pilot to an 18-hour festival that featured multiple stages as well as cultural and food exhibitions. The Year 2018 brought about a version of HCA that focused on telling the story of music with a combination of local and Pan African artists. The festival serves as the musical aspect that started the HomeComing movement. Previous festivals have seen thousands of Africans come together in celebration of their love for music.
