Hoover Turf Tailgate is a fundraiser for the Cancer Support Community and its Sprout Love Financial Assistance Fund that directly grants money to families impacted by cancer to cover basic living expenses.
Hoover Turf Tailgate will be held on every 2022 University of Michigan home football game day at Stadium Club 327 (327 East Hoover). The comfortable, family-friendly garden atmosphere is just 450 feet from the stadium. The event is open to the public, free to enter, and alcoholic beverages are available for purchase for $6. All proceeds from alcohol purchases go directly to the Cancer Support Community and the Sprout Love Financial Assistance Fund. A selection of canned beer, cider, seltzer, and pre-mixed cocktails will be available for purchase; see the menu below for updated beverage availability.
The tailgate also features restrooms, game feeds, seating, and yard games. Food and nonalcoholic purchases will be available from Slow’s Bar BQ.
Hoover Turf Tailgate is all the fun of a tailgate without the work. Check out the schedule for updated tailgate times.
Hoover Turf Tailgate is made possible by financial and in-kind sponsorship from O&W, Inc., Boston Beer Company, and Stadium Club 327. If you are interested in getting involved as a volunteer at Hoover Turf Tailgate, please click here.
The Hoover Turf Tailgate will be open rain or shine. In the event of severe weather, the tailgate will close, and all patrons must leave the area. The severe weather policy follows the University of Michigan guidelines and requires closing the tailgate whenever lightning is seen. The tailgate can reopen 30 minutes following the last lightning strike. This timeline resets after each new strike.
