Atmosphere

Tailgating at Wake Forest primarily takes place in the parking lots surrounding the sports complex that is located just east of campus. The fans here are not shy about who they support and love to display the black and gold of Wake Forest. The fans also provide plenty of tailgate games and pre-game entertainment, such as cornhole, creating a fun and lively tailgating environment.

In addition to pre-game entertainment, Wake Forest tailgates offer a bevy of food based in North Carolina tradition, which helps create a unique North Carolina style tailgate. Here you’ll find plenty of barbecue as well as spicy foods to fill up on, including stuffed hot peppers and hot wings. Grab a beer and a bite to eat before the game as the fans here are more than welcoming.

Wake Forest fans are extremely welcoming and you’ll fit right in if you’re wearing black and gold, so don’t hesitate to arrive to the game early and party with your fellow Demon Deacon fans.
