Are you ready for some Food, Football & Fun!

In its ninth year, Tailgate – Kickoff to a Cure will combine two of Gainesville’s favorite pastimes: food and football. Come join the rest of the Gator Nation as we tailgate in style with an open bar and food from the best restaurants in town! The Gators will provide the entertainment as they travel to Columbia, SC to chomp down on the South Carolina Gamecocks while we watch on big screen TVs in the Touchdown Terrace at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. There is no better way to experience an away game!

During the first half, many of the area’s favorite restaurants will entice football fans with an indoor tailgate of signature fare. While our team is strategizing during halftime, the fans will bid on fabulous live-auction prizes. A silent auction of artwork, sports memorabilia and great getaways will run throughout the day. The day will wind down with marvelous desserts and, hopefully, a big Gator win!
