Atmosphere

Football has returned to campus at Tulane with the opening of Yulman Stadium in 2014, which means that tailgating has also returned to Tulane’s campus. Tailgating is back at Tulane and is bigger than ever as Tailgate Village provides an excellent pregame experience that can rival anywhere in the American Athletic Conference.

Tailgate Village offers an atmosphere similar to Ole Miss’s The Grove, but on a slightly smaller scale. Here you’ll find dozens of tents filled with Tulane fans grilling and partying before heading into Yulman Stadium to watch the Green Wave dismantle their opponents.

There has been a lot of buzz around Tulane football these past few seasons with the opening of Yulman Stadium bringing football back to campus and that buzz has translated to the tailgating scene here as well. You’ll see people getting to campus as early as five hours before the game to start their pregame festivities you’ll also notice a lot more people tailgating than before when the Green Wave were playing in the Superdome. Come out to Tulane to join in on this budding tailgating tradition that has the potential to become one of the best tailgate spots in all of college football.
