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.
