Atmosphere

Louisville tailgates have a college town atmosphere despite the fact that Louisville is the biggest city in Kentucky. Here you’ll find fans throughout the various tailgate lots eating, drinking, and playing numerous tailgate games. You’ll also see many members of the Cardinals pep squad warming up and interacting with fans.

One of the biggest draws to a  Cardinals tailgate is the Card March, which allows fans the chance to give their team that last little bit of inspiration before they take the field. About two hours and 15 minutes before the game the team gets off the bus at Floyd Street and marches to Gate 4 as they are cheered on by adoring fans. If you want a chance to get up close and personal with Louisville players and coaches, make sure to get to the game early and find a spot for the Card March.

Louisville is also home to some great parking lot tailgating and if you’re looking for something different renting a caboose provides a fun time as well. No matter how you tailgate, you’ll have an excellent time tailgating before a Louisville football game.
