First-Come, First-Serve Tailgating
Bring your own tailgate party to Sports Authority Field at Mile High and show us why this truly is Broncos Country. Although tailgating is encouraged in all other stadium parking lots, a limited number of first-come, first-serve stalls in Lot C and Lot M are available for $30 per space or with an existing stadium parking pass, but you have to come early. One permit will be good for one parking stall depending on the size of your vehicle, additional spaces may need to be purchased. Parking Lot C opens at 8am for an afternoon kick off and at 12pm for a night game. All other lots open 5 hours prior the scheduled kick-off time.
The line to purchase tailgating spaces will form at the east entrance to Lot C. A single lane will be coned off south of Lot C at Brooklyn's restaurant. Vehicles arriving from Federal Blvd should circle the stadium clockwise by turning east on 20th Avenue to Bryant Street, then south on Bryant Street to Lower Colfax, then west on Lower Colfax toward Brooklyn's restaurant to the tailgating line. Vehicles arriving from I-25 North should exit at 17th Avenue and I-25 South at 23rd Avenue, then proceed south on Bryant Street to Lower Colfax, then west on Lower Colfax toward Brooklyn's restaurant to the tailgating line.
Tailgating parking spaces will cost $30 for standard-size vehicles (must fit in 8.5' x 17' space) and will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. RVs and oversized vehicles will be charged $30 per space occupied.
Sports Authority Field at Mile High season parking permit holders may choose to tailgate in the First-Come, First-Serve area of Lot C instead of in your designated parking lot. To participate, permit holders from any Sports Authority Field at Mile High parking lot may also line up for tailgate parking and may redeem a current-game parking permit from any lot in lieu of the tailgating parking fee. RVs, oversized vehicles and vehicles with trailers will be subject to additional charges. Once first-come, first-serve parking has sold out, parking permits will be valid only in their designated lots.
Once the tailgating area is full, all other vehicles will be routed to stadium cash parking lots (Lots M, N and P).
