The Official Vandal Tailgate
You are invited to the official tailgate of Vandal football. Let us treat you to a fantastic, pride-filled time at both home and away games. The goal is to provide all the fun of tailgating without the hassle of planning one yourself. We offer Vandal alumni fans and friends a lively and exciting gameday experience that allows you to make the most of gameday.
GameDay at Home
The official Vandal Tailgate is located smack dab in the center of the Kibbie Dome parking lot under a canopy with food by local vendors, music, performances, a visit by the Sound of Idaho Marching Band and Vandal Spirit Squad, giveaways, games for kids and more! Vandal Tailgate opens three hours prior to kickoff. Stop by and get your complimentary tailgate cup. This event is free, family-friendly and open to all.
Vandal fans are known for hosting the best tailgates in the Inland Northwest. Tailgating is allowed in the ASUI-Kibbie Activity Center parking lot, and several lots (link to map) surrounding the Kibbie Dome, starting four hours prior to kickoff. Reserved spots are available in designated lots according to Vandal Scholarship Fund donation level. Fans may bring their own beverages, as long as they are held in an opaque container that is not labeled by an alcohol manufacturer or distributor and remains in one of the designated tailgating parking lots. U of I has implemented a clear bag policy for large events, bags can be purchased at the VandalStore.
Join us at the official Vandal Tailgate at select away games. Enjoy food and drinks and a rousing round of the fight song before taking your seat in the stands. Event schedule and prices vary by location.
