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.
Jim Thome, Bob Feller, and Larry Dobby Statues
The Jim Thome, Bob Feller, and Larry Doby statues outside the Right Field Gate do an excellent job of honoring three of the best players in Indians history. The statues are a must-see for any attending an Indians game, so stop by and snap a picture of them during your trip to Cleveland.
Where to tailgate
Thirsty ParrotThe Thirsty Parrot is only open on game days and as a result is a favorite among Indians fans. Tribe fans love to drink and hang out on the patio, so make sure to walk over and enjoy a cold one before the first pitch
Gateway DistrictThe Gateway District in downtown Cleveland is not only home to Progressive Field, but also many restaurants, bars, and everything in between. Take some time before the game to walk around and check out all the city has to offer before and after the game.
