Jacksonville is home to one of the largest tailgating experiences in the U.S.
Tailgating for sporting events is one of the most iconic American past times where food, friends, and sunshine reign supreme. Gameday Tailgate Experience (“GTE”) takes it to a whole new level, right here in Jacksonville! GTE is a full-service tailgate event that combines all of the individual components of a typical tailgate and provides fans with a one-stop, one price, all-inclusive, pre-game event on a scale that has never been seen before.
Let’s be honest, GTE's tailgates can be more fun than the games. They partner with well-established vendors to supply fans with food, beverages, entertainment, and a designated tented area to hang out among fellow fans and talk about who’s scoring that game-winning touchdown. GTE eliminates the hassle of organizing all the moving parts and separate expenses of individual fan tailgates while maintaining the camaraderie and festive nature that makes tailgating something to get excited about.
GTE tailgates have been occurring in Jacksonville since 2016 and it’s where hundreds of Jaguars’ fans get hyped up for the game. With special guests like Mark Brunell, Josh Scobee, John Henderson, Brody Jenner, Camille Kostek, Robby Hayes, GTE provides fans a unique opportunity to bump elbows with some of the finest Athletes and Celebrities.
With tickets to each tailgate including access to a full Open Bar and all the food you can eat, it is no wonder why GTE’s events appeal to sports fans of any age. And if all the food and drinks are not enough for you, each tailgate also features live music, tented seating, TVs to watch pre-game coverage, traditional tailgating games (cornhole, ladder toss, etc.), and a live auction of sports and entertainment items. One more thing to mention, there's BATHROOMS!
This year, GTE will be hosting 6 tailgates inside the Tailgater’s Parking Lot, located at 1906 E. Beaver St., which is a short 5-10-minute walk to TIAA Bank Field.
