Tailgate Experience

Tailgate Location

Game Day Details

Your tailgate can be located in either Grange Grove or in Lot 42, whichever you prefer.  

All reservations include dedicated tailgating space, tailgating equipment (tents, tables, chairs, and coolers). Plus, we have add-ons such as catering, beverage delivery, bartenders, satellite televisions, BBQs, speakers, and corn-hole games.  We set-up, take-down and clean-up for you so you can just sit back, relax and enjoy the pre-game festivities.

Tailgates open four (4) hours before the game starts and close at kick-off.  If you would like to tailgate longer please contact our team.

A few days before game day, you will receive detailed instructions about how to locate your tailgate and contact details for your game-day concierge.

ONLINE RESERVATIONS WILL CLOSE THE WEDNESDAY BEFORE GAME DAY. PLEASE CALL US AT 888-301-2190 TO CHECK AVAILABILITY.

Catering

Once you’ve booked your package, a member of our team will reach out to confirm all details, and coordinate any catering/beverage/transportation needs!
