2021 AG Day
Saturday, Sept. 25
2 to 6 p.m.
Sponsored by New Mexico Beef Council

AG Day is a huge tailgate event held prior to a New Mexico State University Aggies football game in the fall. Sponsored by New Mexico Beef Council, the 2021 AG Day is Saturday, Sept. 25 from 2 to 6 p.m. (MT), followed by kickoff of the NMSU vs. Hawaii football game at 6 p.m. at Aggie Memorial Stadium. Sept. 25 is also NMSU Homecoming, so there will be plenty of excitement on campus this day.

Located in the south Pan Am Center lot and the northeast Aggie Memorial Stadium lot, AG Day focuses on family fun and the importance of agricultural products, services and jobs in New Mexico. The event features food sampling, educational booths, live music, animals and much more. Booths feature family- and kid-friendly agricultural learning and awareness activities.

Any businesses interested in being an AG Day sponsor should contact Kristie Garcia at or 575-646-2804.


At the football game, there is designated seating for AG Day sponsors, partners and friends of agriculture.
