GT & Vet School Tailgates
What is GatorTailgating?
In Autumn 2007, an SUV full of Gator fans set out on a road trip to Baton Rouge for the LSU away game. The trip resulted in utter failure (including a bad loss) - they couldn’t find other Gator fans to share in their revelry, they weren’t prepared with proper tools of the tailgating trade- they were even missing the basic grill and cooler! On their lonely, dejected trek home, these woebegone Orange and Blue faithful identified the need for a place for other Gator fans to team up and plan their gameday activities like pros. And thus, GatorTailgating.com was born!
GatorTailgating.com is now a premier online community for Gator fans to come together and share information on sports news, tailgating recipes and locations, and ways to celebrate their beloved Gators. GT tailgates are fun, laid-back occasions to come out and cheer for the Boys of Ol’ Florida, and are open to anyone- that’s right, anyone! We keep it fun, clean, respectful, and with just the right amount of debauchery. So come on out and see what Gator Tailgating is all about-the food, fun, and camaraderie that makes up the Gator Nation.

Wait a minute- we say everyone’s invited, but do we really mean it? What about opposing fans?!
Opposing fans are welcome at GT.com tailgates! We really do mean it when we say everyone’s invited- we feel it’s our duty to show the other fans how real champions tailgate. Seminoles may endure a slight amount of razzing, but it’s all in good fun- and good tailgating!
Gator fans from [literally] all over the world have joined us to celebrate the Gators on gameday – we’ve hosted fans from as far as South Africa, Canada, the Netherlands, and all over the United States. The Gator Nation really is everywhere!
