Gator Nation Tailgates | Home Games

Gator fans get ready for some football! The University of Florida Alumni Association invites you to join us for our annual Gator Nation Tailgate events at Emerson Alumni Hall.

Three hours prior to every home game, the plaza at Emerson Alumni Hall will be abuzz with entertainment the whole family can enjoy. We'll feature a live DJ, Gator clad stilt walkers, a piƱata break immediately following Gator Walk, performances by the UF Cheerleading squad, appearances by Albert and Alberta, and food for sale by Gators Dockside. Admittance to the plaza is free.

Inside, Emerson Alumni Hall is transformed into a haven for happy Gators with plenty of fun in a climate-controlled environment. Enjoy appearances by the UF cheerleaders and our mascots, visit our face painting station, watch broadcasted football games shown on televisions throughout the building, purchase food or visit our cash bar, and hear the latest game updates during the "Scouting Report" by Steve Russell.

You must be a member of the UF Alumni Association to enter Emerson Alumni Hall. Please have your membership card or drivers license handy. Life members will enjoy exclusive access to our express lane entrance with valid membership card or proper identification. Life members are also welcome to bring one guest, free of charge.

The fee for non-members is $25 per person.

Please remember that Emerson Alumni Hall closes 30-minutes before kick-off. Once the doors to the building are locked, no one is permitted entry.

We are looking forward to a fantastic football season. Go Gators!
