Atmosphere

The atmosphere at Colorado Buffaloes tailgate combines the athletic spectacle of Pac-12 football with the relaxing ambiance of the Colorado mountain landscape. The relaxing ambiance helps make tailgating at Colorado more laid back and relaxed than some of their fellow Pac-12 schools where everyone goes all out to get as drunk as possible. The laid back atmosphere also means that Buffaloes fans are some of the friendliest in the nation and more than willing to share food and drinks as long as you have something to offer.

When you arrive in Boulder, the first thing you’ll notice is how dedicated the fans here are to their team. Everywhere you go, you’ll find people adorned in black, silver, and gold as they prepare to cheer on their Buffaloes. Once you hit campus, you’ll see a sea of tents, grills, and other tailgate furnishings signaling that you’ve arrived at the biggest party in town. Don’t be shy and join in on the festivities as you’ll make friends quickly particularly if you are wearing Buffs gear.
