Don't Miss Illini Walk & Street Fest Before Every Home Game

Illini Walk will start two-and-a-half hours prior to game time at the corner of First Street and Kirby Avenue, serving as the official kickoff for Street Fest at each home game. Led by the Marching Illini and cheerleading squad, the football team will walk through the Street Fest area down First Street to Irwin Drive, then along the north end of Memorial Stadium. Following Illini Walk, the Marching Illini and cheerleaders will perform briefly for tailgaters as Street Fest gets underway.

During each Illini Street Fest, a free, public concert will be held at the main stage, which will be located at the corner of First and Irwin facing south. Different live entertainment will perform each game day prior to kickoff. In addition to the music, Illini Street Fest will feature several family-friendly, free activities at each game, such as inflatable games, face painting and much more. Vendors will also be available for fans to purchase food and drink. In addition, an Illini information booth will be set up for fans to get posters, plus Kids Club, I Fund and other Illinois Athletics information. At selected games, Illinois athletic teams will make appearances and sign autographs.

Registration for the clinics is required and can be done on site or in advance by filling out a printable application (pending) and bringing it to the clinic. However, please note that a parent's signature is required on the registration form. Free parking will be available in the northeast lot of the State Farm Center.
