The Black & Goal'd Remix Tailgates and Grab & Go stations are ready to kick off another Hawkeye football season. We are excited to expand the tailgates to feature food and drinks for students, families, and the Hawkeye community at the grab & go stations.

As a collaborative effort from many University campus partners, we hope to foster connection between students and staff, reduce negative consequences from substance use in our community, and offer a safe, fun event. Each tailgate and grab & go station will begin three hours before the game begins and will have a variety of lawn games, music, and local Iowa City catered food!

Fall 2023 dates and location

To be determined.



Student and staff/faculty members are invited to help volunteer at all of the events.
