Atmosphere

The Tribe made it to the World Series last year, and Cleveland will be abuzz with excitement over the Indians this year meaning you’ll find a great atmosphere surrounding The Jake on game days.

Although tailgating is not allowed at Progressive Field, that doesn’t stop Indians fans from celebrating and enjoying pre-game festivities. The majority of the area surrounding the Jake is pedestrian only, which goes a long way in helping create a festive atmosphere surrounding the stadium on game days. All around the park you’ll find Indians fans clad in red, white, and blue pregaming and celebrating.

If you’re looking to grab something to eat or drink before the game than the Gateway District is the place to be. Not only is Progressive Field located in the Gateway District it’s also home to several great bars and restaurants as well. Just make sure to arrive early, if you want to get a table.
