Griz fans take pride in getting pumped up on game days. With the tailgate starting two hours before the each home game, fans can hang out, eat, and drink with friends, family, and the rest of the tight-knit community. Live music and DJs also are found at these tailgates. Hosted by the Grizzly Scholarship Association, the fans can get pumped at both home and most away games. Tailgating can be found in the GSA section of the parking lot, just north of the reserved Parking Lot M.
As the players walk to Washington- Grizzly Stadium, the fans can cheer them on. The spirit squad, Monte, and the marching band lead the way from McGill Hall.Watch video

Where to tailgate
Permit Parking LotsIf you want to throw a huge tailgate bash filled with tons of people, then make sure to secure a parking pass for one of the permit lots. The Kirkland Memorial Grove, River Bowl South, Campus Drive, Van Buren Street, 5th and 6th Street tailgate lots are where you’ll find the biggest tailgate parties on Saturdays throughout the fall, so stop by and check them out.
University Parking Lots and Grassy AreasThose of you who want to hold a small tailgate gathering with fewer than 20 people can just park in one of the university lots and set up shop. Lots A, B, C, D, E, F, L, M, M1, N, P, R, T, U, V, W, Y, and Z are the perfect place to tailgate with friends and family before the game.
