Tailgate Tips


While you can set up your tailgate space however basic or deluxe you like, you’ll find many tailgaters who come loaded with a buffet of food and desserts, custom cocktails and a fully-stocked cooler, tables with tablecloths, plenty of chairs plus a tent for shade.


Some tailgaters even break out the fine silver for this special occasion! Check out these tailgate setups from previous years for a little inspiration, especially if you want to win the “Best Tailgate” contest:

It’s All About the Outfits


In addition to an impressive tailgate setup, remember to breakout your fancy hats, sundresses or crazy pants to join the traditional garb worn by many attendees to the Tryon Block House Races.
