Washington Redskins fans put on one of the best pre-game parties in the nation. At a Redskins tailgate, you’ll find a lot of barbecues, alcohol, and camaraderie. Redskins fans are more than happy to have a drink with fellow fans as you’ll receive a warm welcome when tailgating at a Redskins game. Make sure to wear team colors though if you want to receive this treatment as visiting fans of NFC East rivals may not receive as warm of a reception.
Redskins fans also provide excellent food for the tailgate. The Redskins play in Washington, so barbecue is king meaning bring a bib as you wouldn’t want to get barbecue sauce all over your favorite Redskins jersey. One can also find some more traditional tailgating fare including burgers and hotdogs as well.
Other typical tailgate activities at Redskins tailgate include cornhole and tossing the football around in the parking lots. Whether you’re chowing down on some delicious barbecue, guzzling down a beer, or playing cornhole you’re sure to be having a great time at a Redskins tailgate.
