Parents & Family Weekend Pre-Game Tailgate
Time: 3 hours prior to kickoff
An annual Parents & Family Weekend favorite, the pre-game tailgate is your opportunity to show your Michigan spirit! The tailgate features food, games, prizes and student performers to help you prepare to experience a game in the “Big House”. Location, entertainment, and menu information will be provided at a later date. Tickets can be purchased through the Parents & Family Weekend Online Registration form when it becomes available in August. The football game time will be announced 7-12 days before the event. The tailgate will begin three hours prior to kickoff and families are encouraged to arrive near the beginning of the tailgate start time so you don't miss out on any of the entertainment. Therefore if the kickoff is at noon, the tailgate begins at 9:00 a.m. If kickoff is at 3:30, the tailgate begins at 12:30. Please note that the tailgate menu is determined months in advance and does not change based on the tailgate start time.
Michigan v. Indiana Football Game
Come watch the Wolverines and head coach, Brady Hoke, battle the Hoosiers. Attending a football game at “the Big House” is one of the most popular things to do at Michigan. Tickets can be purchased through the Parents & Family Weekend Online Registration form when it becomes available in August. Or, you may contact the Athletic Ticket Department to purchase tickets on your own when football tickets go on sale to the general public. Typically the Athletic Department public sale takes place in early summer.
