Registration ongoing for Penn State Tailgates at away football games

September 13, 2019

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — There's still time for Penn State alumni and fans to cheer on Penn State football at this season’s Penn State Tailgates, the premier pregame event for away games, hosted by the Penn State Alumni Association.

Penn State Tailgates feature the Nittany Lion, Pep Band, and Penn State cheerleaders, along with an opportunity to hear from special guests and share in Penn State camaraderie.

Each tailgate begins three hours before scheduled kickoff, and the program starts an hour later.

Penn Staters are encouraged to register early, as the Maryland tailgate is sold out.

Registration is available for the tailgates at Iowa (Oct. 12), Michigan State (Oct. 26), Minnesota (Nov. 9), and Ohio State (Nov. 23).

Established in 1870, the Penn State Alumni Association serves more than 172,000 members and 700,000 alumni worldwide. Its mission is to connect alumni to the University and to each other; provide valued services to members; and support the University’s mission of teaching, research and service.
