The Yard - FREE Music, Food, Football & Fun!

Everyone's Invited Out to The Yard.

THE YARD at Huskie Stadium is THE place to be for all Huskie fans prior to every NIU football home game this fall.  

Free and open to the public, The Yard is located on the West Lawn within, well, yards of the stadium entrances and is the official pregame tailgate for ALL FANS

Inside The Yard, enjoy free live music, purchase food from one of several popular local vendors, or stop by the beer garden. Catch football action from around the country on the giant video screen while your kids check out the Kids Zone.

Get fired up for the game when the NIU cheerleaders, Mission, Victor E. Huskie and the Huskie Marching Band stop by and check out the latest in Huskie gear!

NIU students are welcome in The Yard, get a group of friends and stop by for a game of corn hole, or purchase pregame food from one of our vendors.
