Atmosphere

Vikings fans are some of the nicest and most welcoming fans in the NFL. Bring some beer and something to grill and join right in on the tailgate fun. You’ll make friends quickly when tailgating with Vikings fans as everyone at a Vikings tailgate is not only hospitable but also very friendly. You’ll have an exceptionally easy time fitting in if you’re wearing purple and gold, however even if you support the visiting team most people will be more than willing to have a few drinks with you.

The tailgate lots outside of the stadium are packed full of tents, grills, and coolers on game day. All throughout the lots, you’ll see fellow Vikings fans drinking and carousing as they prepare to cheer on the Vikings to victory. You’ll also see the occasional game of beer pong or cornhole as well.

Also, there are a variety of excellent tailgate vehicles that any big time tailgate should check out at a Vikings tailgate including the Fanbulance and Battlewagon. These vehicles provide great entertainment for everyone at the tailgate and also provide a great conversation piece. Keep your eyes peeled for all the great tailgate vehicles in the tailgating lots.

Legacy Ship

The 160 ft Viking inspired sculpture, located at the Medtronics Plaza, is a must see. The ship includes a timeline of historical moments in Vikings history and also features the stadium marquee, which is cleverly incorporated into the ship’s sail.

Skol Line

The Skol Line is the official drumline of the Minnesota Vikings. They play a variety of rock and roll as well as traditional drumline-inspired music. Typically the Skol Line performs outside the stadium leading up to the fans entering as well as performances during the pregame and halftime.
