See the big rivalry on Kalamazoo's biggest screen. Tailgate with the Growlers at Homer Stryker field and watch on the video board in the outfield. 

UPDATE: This event has been cancelled

It was a year that looked like we wouldn't have college football. Now, with a truncated eight game regular season, the rivalry between Michigan and Michigan State means more than ever. The Wolverines and Spartans will play in week 2 this year, on Halloween, no less, with TV coverage beginning at noon.

So, even though there's a pandemic, this is not a game for watching alone at home. Having a houseful of friends over is risky. The Kalamazoo Growlers have a big backyard and they are inviting everyone to Kalamazoo's largest tailgate party. (Well, OK, not everyone as tickets are limited to ensure social distancing.) Even this baseball team knows it's a big football game, so the team will have beer, BBQ, and lots of air hi-fives as fans watch the game on the huge screen in the outfield at Homer Stryker Field.

What do you need for the best tailgate party?

  • The Game: Michigan vs Michigan State is a rivalry that dates back to 1898. The Wolverines have an advantage overall with a record of 72-36-5 in 113 games.
  • The Beer: The taps will be open at Homer Stryker field with beer specials available all day.
  • The Food: Fat Mike's BBQ will be serving up chicken, pork and brisket tacos and sliders.
  • Big-Screen TV: The 20 x 28 LED video board was installed in 2018.
  • Friends: Get yours together and grab your tickets. This is a limited capacity event and is subject to sell out.

Tickets are $8 entry only and $25 for beer & BBQ. Other food and drink are available for purchase inside the stadium.
