Illinois Tailgate Experience
We now have two locations for tailgating at the University of Illinois. You can choose to be in Grange Grove right next to the stadium. The other option is Lot 42 near the intersection of Kirby Ave and 4th Street. Guests not parking in Lot 42 will have the option of pull alongside Lot 42 to drop off and pick up personal items.
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.
