Tailgating For A Cause is a people-focused vehicle for change, designed to bring together folks who love two things – helping others, and having fun. Founded upon the idea that fun and philanthropy aren’t mutually exclusive, our mission is to give the community the opportunity to come together and support local charities, and have a whole lot of fun along the way.

For a small group of local Vol fans, the passion was already there. They were lifelong football enthusiasts who just happened to love helping people. Bringing the two together was just the next logical step.

Thus, on an unseasonably warm fall day in 2014, Tailgating for a Cause was born. It started small, with just a grill, a single TV and a few cases of, uh, Powerade, but in the three years since, has flourished into an experience unlike any other on campus. And with a multitude of local and national charities now benefiting from its largesse, a bevy of events year-round, and the support of countless local businesses, food, and beverage sponsors, the Tailgating for a Cause movement is more exciting than ever!


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

All ages are welcome at our fall events!

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking during game days can be tough. Here are a few options to help you.

Please know that all campus parking lots are reserved during game day.

  • Closest to campus – Poplar St lot – $40
  • Downtown garages – $20 – Main Ave, Dwight Kessel, City County Bldg, and Locust St
  • Downtown – Civic Coliseum Garage & Blackstock Lot – $10
  • Free garages – State Street & Market Square
  • Old City Praking Lot is Free and offers a ride from the city Trolley to and from campus for $10.

Note: East TN Children’s Hospital sells parking as a fundraiser for their Volunteer Services programs.
Ft. Sanders Hospital reserves parking for employees and hospital visitors only.

What can I bring into the event?

We strive to provide all the necessities for the best pre-game event experience. One of the best parts of our event is that everything is provided for you. That being said, Feel free to bring a camping chair or personal necessities like sunscreen or a rain jacket. We ask that no one bring any outside food or drink. We have wonderful partners that will provide the best libations and food you could ever need.

All University rules and restrictions still apply. We are guests on campus and we want to be respectful of their policies.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

You can send your questions to info@tntfac.com

What's the refund policy?

We are doing our best to raise funds for charities here in Knoxville. For that reason, we do not offer refunds. You can provide your membership to another person if you are unable to attend.

Do I have to bring my printed membership to the event?

We encourage everyone to bring a copy of their membership either printed or on their phone. We will have a list on site just in case. Please remember that cell phone coverage is spotty during game days so we encourage everyone to purchase in advance and load their membership on their phone in advance as well.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

Yes. Feel free to provide your membership to someone else if you are not able to attend. The membership is only valid for one member per game.

Is it ok if the name on my membership or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

As long as that membership hasn't been used, another person can use it.
