The Auburn University tailgating tradition continues to grow as more areas continued to be opened to handle the incredible "War Eagle" chanting crowds that love spending Football Saturdays on the Plains. Securing a good tailgating spot usually requires that fans arrive early and there are plenty of guidelines and restrictions regarding the many aspects of tailgating to include the size and placement of tents, generators, vehicles and much more. While many fans still bring their own supplies, many of the fans needs are handled by Auburn Tigers tailgating suppliers and vendors who specialize in helping fans enjoy their gameday experience.
Auburn Tailgating Guidelines
With the growing abundance of Tiger fans wanting to experience a gameday on the Auburn Plains, more and more guidelines are being implemented to ensure that fans enjoy a positive and safe experience. Information is constantly released and updated on when areas across the campus will become accessible for setup. Tailgaters are typically allowed to start setting up after 4P.M. on Fridays prior to gameday. Much of this info can be found on the University's athletic website which lists specific Auburn tailgating policies. There are also good information sources that provide insight on where to park, how to reserve your tailgate area, information on types of grills you can use and much more. There are also designated tailgate drop-off areas to include the Transportation Tech Center (Magnolia Avenue), Goodwin Music Hall (Samford Avenue), Mell Street Station (Mell Street), Intramural Fields (Biggio Drive and the Facilities Division (Samford Avenue).
