Washington, DC Tailgating




  1. Can we join your tailgate?

    The tailgate is open to all Redskins fans.   We ask that you RSVP in advance to let us know you are coming.

  2. Are you guys regular fans like us or a for profit restaurant?

    We are Redskins fans, just like you.  We aren't assocated with any restuarant or catering company, and pay for the weekly tailgates out of our own pocket.  Because of this, we encourage all tailgate participants to donate to our tip jar to help offset the costs of food and other expenses (ice, propane, forks, knives, plates, etc). 

  3. What if I don't RSVP but still show up

    We bring food based on our RSVP's.  If you do not RSVP, we unfortunately will not be able to provide you access to our buffett.

  4. Where is your tailgate located?

    For all Redskins games at FedEx Field, we are set up at the G20 sign, which is where the Orange and Purple lots merge along Arena Drive. 


  5. Can we bring something to the tailgate?

    We will provide all food.  Since we do not provide alcohol, our tailgates are byob for those guests of legal drinking age.  If you would like to make an addition to our selection by bringing an item, please let us know in advance of the tailgate so we may coordinate.

  6. How much does the tailgate cost?

    We do not charge for our tailgates. It is suggested that tailgate members and guests make a monetary donation of $10 - $20 per person towards the tailgate to help offset the cost of food and equipment.

  7. Can't I just buy a hot dog from you?

    It is against FedEx Field policy to sell food or any other items in the parking lot areas.  In compliance with this policy, we only offer food to our members and guests. 

  8. What time does the tailgate start?

    The parking lots of FedEx Field parking lots will open 4 hours prior to kickoff. Our team will often arrive hours before the lots open and have a "pre-tailgate" on Arena Drive as we wait for the lots to open.

  9. Do you partner with any out of town fan groups for a VIP experience?

    The HailBBQ tailgate is a private tailgate of football fans.  As such, we do not partner with any travel groups or require tickets to be purchased in advance to attend (but please RSVP so we know you are coming).  If you have purchased tickets to attend our tailgate from a travel group, please note that these will not be honored.
