Tailgating Regulations

In order to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all of our visitors, please adhere to the following tailgating etiquette when tailgating at LJVM Coliseum events.

  1. NO GAS POWERED GENERATORS ALLOWED – For safety reasons, gas powered generators are not allowed due to the combustible situation gasoline presents.
  2. GRILLS AND KEGS – Propane/gas grills should be used when tailgating.  However, we ask that propane tanks be limited to the 5-10 gallon size.  Charcoal grills are discouraged due to the waste they produce.  Kegs are permissible; however, groups providing kegs are also responsible for monitoring consumption and making sure those consuming alcohol are of legal age.  NO LIQUOR ALLOWED!  Action will be taken.
  3. NO GLASS CONTAINERS – Again, for safety considerations, we ask that all tailgaters use cups only – No Glass, please!
  4. PARKING – Parking fees vary by event. Please exit the way you entered.   Tailgating is limited to the area directly in front of or behind your vehicle. Empty spaces may NOT be used for the purpose of tailgating, unless patrons have paid for any additional spaces used. Only one stall per vehicle is allowed.
  5. TENTS – All tents are restricted to grassy areas – no tents should be erected in the parking lot due to space limitations and for emergency access into and through the parking lot.
  6. NO EXTERNAL STEREO SYSTEMS ALLOWED – Out of courtesy to others using the same parking lots, only portable radio/stereo units (boom boxes) will be permitted.  Remember though, for safety reasons, house stereo units requiring an external power source will not be allowed.
  7. BEHAVIOR – Please be respectful of other tailgaters around you. We rely on you not only to follow these policies, but to help enforce them with those around you. The LJVM Coliseum promotes a family atmosphere in the parking lot and inside the arena.
  8. MISCELLANEOUS – Please pick up and bag your trash before entering the game.  Personal bags brought into the coliseum are subject to search.  In case of emergency, please dial 911.
  9. NO RE-ENTRY – The LJVM Coliseum has a “no re-entry” policy during events. Guests wishing to return any items to their vehicle must do so before passing through the turnstiles. Select consumer shows and day-long sporting events permit re-entry with a hand stamp or alternate method of tracking.
  10. PROHIBITED ITEMS – The following items are prohibited within the LJVM Coliseum:
  • Alcoholic beverages
