University of Tennessee Tailgate
With 23 years of Tailgating, the evolution of Big Orange Tailgating has taken quite a ride. This group of Vol fans started out like most with just a couple of coolers, a bucket of chicken and a tent. Fast forward, Big O has their own set of logos, a converted ambulance and a one-ton tow behind smoker. Certainly BOT is much more than their big boy toys. They are a welcoming group that invites the other team's fans to come hang out and share in food, drinks and stories. It's a relatively large group of family and friends that love to meet new people and show them a good time. Many life long friends have been made by happenstance at their tailgates which is what Tailgate Connect is all about and we are as grateful as they are for that first "bucket of chicken" that started it all. They are known for a chill vibe with music, TV, food and beverages that can occasionally can get a little rowdy... but in a respectful manner of course!
This SEC tailgate has everything needed to elevate your gameday experience in Knoxville, we've got plenty of shade with a few canopies to cover most of the tailgate. Usually we have over 75 guests and the event is open to all ages. Southern and American food - pulled pork pork tenderloin, pulled chicken, burgers, hot dogs, wood shed taters, smoked mac & cheese, collard greens sausage, peppers & onions, and much more will be on-hand with drinks to wash it all down! Come early to enjoy the party 6 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 a TV to watch the game on and we'll be hanging out for 2 hours afterwards as well! Our professional-grade speakers will be playing and our gas powered blender will keep the party going for as long as we're there. Can't wait to meet you!
