Notre Dame Tailgate
A passionate group of Notre Dame fans that began their tailgate over 50 years ago that are always willing to share some epic tailgate stories. From dumping sand in the parking lot for a beach party back in the 80s this tailgate has come a long way. While a sibling was enrolled at ND and people constantly had trouble finding the tailgate despite having pole numbers in the parking lot they decided to do something about it to make life easier for those in search. One game around Halloween they found a giant inflatable Frankenstein and people have never had trouble since. They became known as the Frankenstein tailgate after that, and now that Frankenstein was decommissioned since he barely inflated anymore, they have replaced him in the lineup with a giant Mr. Stay Puft Marshmallow Man.
This ACC-adjacent tailgate has everything needed to elevate your gameday experience in Notre Dame, we've got plenty of shade with a few canopies to cover most of the tailgate if weather necessitates it. Usually we have about 30-40 guests and the event is open to all ages though, typically the guests are about 25-40 years old. Food varies by game but hot dogs and brats will always be on-hand with Bud Light, craft beer, water and pop to wash it all down! Come early to enjoy the party 5 hours before the game and if you don't have a ticket to head into the stadium or just don't want the fun to end don't worry. We've got 1 TV to watch the game on but we won't be hanging out afterwards! However, our stereo will be playing and our 15' tall Stay Puft inflatable will keep the party going for as long as we're there. Can't wait to meet you!
