Join us for the 4th annual WIU Family Day BBQ Competition on September 17, 2022!

Join the WIU School of Agriculture and the University Union Board as we look forward to the fourth annual Food, Family, Farming, Football BBQ Competition on Saturday, September 17, 2022. Live music from the Devin Clemons Band, activities for the entire family, and the battle for the best BBQ around followed by the Fighting Leatherneck home opener will make for a great day to be a Leatherneck!

Activities begin at 11 a.m. and will wrap up with awards at 2:30 p.m. Food will be served while supplies last so don't be late to the fun.

Leatherneck Football game tickets are only $10. WIU students are admitted for FREE! Game time 3 p.m.
