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.

"Everything was so simple. Tailgating is a chore for most people, you have to set up a tent days before the game and break it down late after the game. With the Tailgate Guys everything is handled for you, simply show up and enjoy the game-day experience."
