Annual Cocoa Bean & Homecoming 2021

It’s time once again for a true autumn classic – the annual Cocoa Bean football game between Hershey High School and neighboring Milton Hershey School on Friday night, September 17, at 7 p.m. at Hersheypark Stadium. While the game is the centerpiece of the event, there are several other exciting activities, including Homecoming.


Friday, we will be having spirited performances from our Band and Cheerleaders, which will lead into our Community Tailgate (3:00-5:30) in the parking lot, featuring our DJ, food trucks, and student activities/games. All are welcome to attend. ALL ARE INVITED!


Not sure what to wear on the big night out?  The Trojan Trading Post, the official school store of Hershey High School, is selling special Cocoa Bean Game shirts.  Order at!


A student fan bus will be provided to take students from the tailgate to the stadium. Please contact to arrange your transportation. During halftime at the football game (7:00pm) at the Hershey Park Stadium, we will be crowning our Homecoming Queen!


This year’s Homecoming Dance will be held Saturday, September 18th from 7:00pm to 10:00pm in the high school cafeteria and connecting outdoor space. Tickets for the dance cost $10.00 and will be on sale during lunches next week. Attire is semi-formal. Homecoming King will crowned during the dance.
