The festivities and fun of a home football game results in thousands of Penn Staters descending into Happy Valley for a weekend full of tradition and pride.
It is important to remember the key elements to a successful football weekend, and as a member of the Penn State Community, we need YOU to lead the way.
Pre- and post-game tailgating is a tradition that makes football Saturdays an exciting experience. Families and friends gather to enjoy food, drink, and the gameday atmosphere, creating Penn State memories that last a lifetime.
When tailgating, it is advantageous to aim to create the best possible tailgate atmosphere. Please follow parking regulations so that all fans can enjoy the Penn State experience. The areas of emphasis below continue to be very important when it comes to safety and the overall enjoyment of everyone on gamedays in Happy Valley:
Courtesy and respect are crucial to a positive tailgating experience. While we are all Penn State fans, no one wants to have their space infringed upon by the tailgate right next to them!
With over 100,000 people coming to the stadium area on gameday, it is important to anticipate traffic and arrive early!
As a reminder, parking lot patrons who are issued parking passes (General, Preferred or Reserved) are responsible for the behavior of all who use their parking space or attend their tailgate/gathering/event.
Food and drink are what make a tailgate complete, so make sure you note the following:
Penn State Community
One of the greatest things about Penn State football weekends is the community that is created both at tailgates and in the stadium. As members of the Penn State football community, we must set an example and strive to create a positive gameday atmosphere, especially when relating to other fans.
Overall, demonstrate the class and pride that Penn State cherishes and the impact will be tremendous.
