Join us for Salute to Agriculture Day!

The College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences (ACES) invites you to attend Salute to Agriculture Day at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on Saturday, September 12 from 9-10:30 a.m.

Prior to watching the Illini take on Western Illinois, we invite you to enjoy a tailgate including a short program hosted by Orion Samuelson followed by an auction of state fair prize-winning meat packages.  The tailgate will be located in Lot 31 on the tree line along Kirby Avenue directly to the west of the stadium.

A breakfast meal provided by L.A. Gourmet Catering will be featured in the tent. Adult meal tickets are $15. Student meal tickets are $10. A cash bar will also be available during the pre-game event.

A limited number of football tickets are available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis. Game tickets are $20.

Game and meal tickets can be picked up through Friday, September 11 at the ACES Library, Information and Alumni Center, Suite 115, 1101 S. Goodwin Ave. Tickets can also be picked up at the tent prior to the start of the event.
