The Homecoming & Family Weekend Tailgate Party
October 1 @ 11:00 am
The Homecoming & Family Weekend Tailgate Party will begin at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 1, in the parking lot of the James R. Wilkins, Jr. Athletics & Events Center. Get ready for the big game at the Homecoming & Family Weekend Tailgate Party! Take in some great music, enjoy face painting, inflatables and much, much more! Your admission is $20, which includes FREE food and drink bucks ($25 value per guest) to be used at the various food vendors on-site, as well as at the beer & wine garden. Join in eating delicious food, and enjoy an assortment of games and activities for all ages! To register for the event, visit su.edu/homecoming.
There are a few options for Tailgate Party parking – please be sure to read on for VERY IMPORTANT details! FREE parking can be found in the Brandt Student Center parking lot and/or parking garage (shuttles will be available to take you over to the Wilkins Athletics & Events Center). If you’d rather park closer to the action, parking in the Wilkins Athletics & Events Center (WAEC) costs $10 per space and must be purchased in advance (choose “Home Parking” or “Garage Parking”); please note that regardless of the option you select, the first SU fans to arrive will be directed to the WAEC lot and overflow will go into the garage. You’re free to tailgate in your parking space, but if you’d like some additional tailgating room, purchase the $30 “HOME Tailgating” option in advance (IN ADDITION to your $10 parking) to have a reserved tailgating space in the Hornet Athletics tailgating area, a grassy area next to the Wilkins Athletics & Events Center.
