Tailgate Locations

We offer an attractive and organized tent layout and site plan that helps guests easily find their tailgate location. To create a comfortable and friendly atmosphere that encourages human interaction, we consult with a professional community planner on the layout of each location. All of our guests receive a site-specific map that indicates their tailgate location for either a single game or the full season.

What time does the tailgate site open?

Your tailgate will be prepared and ready to serve you 5 hours prior to kickoff of the Boilermaker game, or 9:00 AM, whichever is earlier. Your tailgate will be open until two hours post game, or midnight, whichever comes later.

Can I reserve an individual game package or does it have to be full season?

Tailgate Guys offers both full season and individual game packages. All packages are subject to availability.

How does the bellhop service work? Will this be available after the game?

Tailgate Guys’ bellhop service runs before the game and will meet you in a designated location. The service is available beginning five (5) hours prior to kickoff. When you pull up to the drop off zones, the bellhops will meet you at your vehicle and transport any items to your tailgate location for you. This service is also available after the game.

Where are the restrooms located?

Port-a-johns will be located within walking distance of the tailgate site.

Can I leave my items at the tent during the game?

Yes. You may leave your items at your tent while you attend the game. We encourage you to gather everything and place under the tent in an organized manner to keep your belongings centralized. We will monitor the area during the game, however, Tailgate Guys is not responsible for any items left behind or misplaced.

Does the package include a parking pass?

Am I allowed to bring my own food and beverages?
