Group Tent Parties at Memorial Stadium

    Pregame tailgate parties, hosted on the grass lots directly adjacent to Memorial Stadium, are a great way to entertain clients, employees, alumni groups, and others while taking in the sights and sounds of an IU Football game-day. IU Athletics partners with Master Rental of Bloomington, the top tent provider and party supply outlet in the area, along with a select group of Bloomington restaurants and caterers, to provide fans with an outstanding tailgate party experience.

    "We had a terrific tailgate party this season!! The staff with IU Athletics and Master Rental, as well as our caterer made it easy for us on game day. They exceeded our expectations and were there throughout the event to make sure everything ran smoothly."

    -Ellen Philhower, Events and Meetings Associate
    Indiana University Foundation

    "The location of the tailgate party was right next to the stadium which made it convenient for our guests, and the food and tenting options were awesome! We'll be back again next season and our guests have already begun asking us for next year's IU Football tailgate party date."

    -Kelley Brown, Director of Marketing
    Bloomington Chamber of Commerce
