Mission's Grove is Back for its Second Season! 

Mission’s Grove is located in Oderkirk Field, which is adjacent to the Barsema Alumni & Visitors Center, located at 231 N. Annie Glidden Rd. in DeKalb, Illinois, 60115. Parking will be available at the Chick Evans Field House. There is no cost for admission. 

This area will feature alumni-owned Pollyanna Brewing & Distilling and Waterman Winery & Vineyards, along with a variety of unique and eclectic food trucks that will appeal to all ages.

Mission’s Grove will be enclosed by a 40’ x 60’ tent, which will include four 20 ‘ x 20’ tents that are available for group rental. For tent pricing and availability, please contact NIU Foundation Director of Events Dana King, ’05, at dking1@niu.edu or 815-753-5421.

The event will also feature everyone’s favorite mascot, Mission III. The undisputed highlight will be the “Mission's March,” as the NIU Huskie Marching Band will accompany Mission to Huskie Stadium, 45 minutes prior to kickoff.
