Family friendly tailgating planned for Purdue home games

Purdue University will offer a family-friendly parking area for tailgating before home football games this year.

Family Zone, located at the front of the Gold Lot off of Third Street and McCormick, and will be available at all Purdue University home football games. A map can be found by clicking here.

The Family Zone is close to StreetFest, at the northeast corner of Ross-Ade Stadium. StreetFest - free and open to the public - includes inflatable games for children, posters, prizes and more and starts approximately three hours prior to kick off. The StreetFest location for this season will be located on the northeast corner of Ross-Ade Stadium. For the Homecoming game, StreetFest will be located near the campus celebration festivities.

Family Zone is a project of the Drug-Free Coalition of Tippecanoe County and Purdue University.

"The Drug-Free Coalition of Tippecanoe County is excited to work with Purdue to provide a family-friendly area where young people can comfortably tailgate," said Katy Travis, Program Director.

Cost to park in the Gold Lot is $10. Ushers will direct cars to the Family Zone.

Join us for the first game of the season THIS Saturday at 12noon against Middle Tennessee State University.

Go Boilers!
