What is tailgating?

A tailgate party is a social gathering with your friends and family, often in parking lots at a sporting event, concert, or any other attraction. Most will pop open their trunks for impromptu seating. One of the most popular tailgating gatherings is a football tailgate barbecue.

The term “tailgating” is believed to have been coined by the fans of the Green Bay Packers. They would arrive at the stadium with the beds of their trucks filled with potatoes, ham, and plenty of booze to go around.
