Community members, students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to join the Huskies for a down home celebration in downtown DeKalb.  

The Huskie Homecoming Block Party has something for everyone—kidzone, classic car show, March of the Huskies, pep rally, food trucks, discounts at local businesses and much more!

For the event, Lincoln Highway will be closed between First and Fourth Street from 10 a.m. Thursday until 6 a.m. Friday. As shown on the map, portions of Second Street, Third Street and Palmer Court will also be closed. The map also shows available parking and a schedule of events.
