Tailgates and Ram Rallies
Game Day Weekends at Canvas Stadium
Home game tailgates will start on Friday, September 3, when your Colorado State University Rams take on the South Dakota State Jackrabbits at Canvas Stadium! On all home game days, the Coors Light Ram Walk Tailgate will open to the public four hours before kickoff. The Tailgate offers music, TVs showing national games, as well as food, beer, and wine for purchase. The Tailgate is hosted by the Alumni Association and CSU Athletics.
The Iris & Michael Smith Alumni Center will also open four hours prior to kickoff. Watch college football games on our giant video wall, explore CSU stories through interactive touch screens, and get your photo with CAM the Ram (just outside the center). Beer, wine, and food are available for purchase and the stadium's clear bag policy is in effect. The alumni center will close 30 minutes prior to kickoff, just in time for the ringing of the Old Main Bell at the Jim and Nadine Henry Family Tower just outside the main entrance.
Stay the Weekend
As you book your stay in Fort Collins for the big game, we want to help you make plans and find fun things to do during your down time. Fort Collins is home to some of the best restaurants, breweries, family-friendly activities and outdoor recreation in the state of Colorado. Not to mention Fort Collins has a downtown area that inspired the creation of Disneyland Main Street USA! Let us help you plan the best game day weekend possible with some of our favorite itineraries.
CSU Football Away Games
Join us for Ram Rallies the night before away football games and tailgates hosted by the CSU Alumni Association 2.5 hours before kickoff.
Get Your Green On
If it’s Friday, and you love CSU, you should be wearing green. CSU celebrates “Get Your Green On” every Friday and on game weekends during the football season. Wearing your green not only identifies you as a CSU fan, it means you can take advantage of some great offers from local businesses.
