Kickoff Football Gameday at Tailgate Town every Saturday. For everyone who is planning on coming out to watch the Miami RedHawks football team this year, or maybe thinking about, or maybe it never crossed your mind at all until now, it doesn't matter because Tailgate Town is definitely for you.
"Tailgate Town has become the pregame experience as it's where the fun and games begin for students, alumni, youth organizations, and our sports programs. The concert series line up is the best it's ever been, plus the food is made to order. And admission is always free," stated Anthony J. Azama, Assistant AD for Marketing, Sales and Licensing.
We like to ask our fans the same question we ask our athletes and our students; Are you all in? If your answer is yes, which we know it is, then there is no reason for you not to contact us about getting a hospitality package for any group size to get the full experience of Tailgate Town. The hospitality package includes reserved tickets, a tent, tables, chairs, signage, visits from Swoop and the Miami Cheerleaders, and entertainment from the MU Pep Band. If that's not enough, Tailgate town also features live music, interactive games, food, and fun for the whole family. To throw in even more incentive, a group of 20 or more can purchase individual game day tickets for only $10 each (a 50% savings off the single-game ticket price!) and for an extra $2 you can upgrade your order to add a hotdog and soft drink.
The bands we have for you this year are:
My Girl Friday (9/8/12) - Plays a variety of rock music from the 80s the 90s and the 2000s
After Midnight (9/22/12) - They're returning for their fifth Tailgate Town providing you with classic rock from the 70s from super groups and one-hit wonders
Cover Model (10/27/12) - A band from Cincinnati that plays the best rock, pop, hip-hip, and the top 40 to keep you dancing all through the night
Groove Jackets (11/10/12) - Their selection includes Motown, R & B, and some classic rock.
We encourage everyone to join us at Tailgate Town! It's located on West Millett lawn and opens two hours before kick-off of each home Miami football game and admission is free. For customized group packages, please contact the Sales and Service Department at (513) 529-1611.
