Office Tailgate Party Ideas

Football season is in full swing, and your office has probably already set up your fantasy league! If you’re planning a corporate event this fall, consider keeping the football theme alive by hosting an office tailgate party. A lively pre-game party is a great way to entertain your team or clients in a fun environment. Now I know what you’re thinking… How is a cooler of beer and some burgers going to turn into a successful corporate event? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Check out these office tailgate party ideas!

Cater to their taste buds

If you’re hosting guests at a tailgate party, you need to be working the crowd, not manning the grill. Hire a caterer to do all the heavy lifting for you. Gourmet football fare and a bar package could be all you need to take your tailgate to the next level.

Consider your space  

While a sectioned-off piece of parking lot is fine, you might consider an all-inclusive tailgate package that includes a trailer, flat-screen TVs, couches and tailgate games, in addition to a food and beverage package. We’ve got the hook up for these types of experiences at College and NFL stadiums across the country, so reach out to learn more about this option. 

Pre-game games

Everyone loves a little friendly competition, especially before heading into a big game. Whether it’s bags or giant Jenga, beer pong or flip cup, it’s essential to come prepared to play some games. Think about your guests and which type of game feels most appropriate. Then make sure you have the supplies (and a place to store them) for the hit game.

Stay warm inside  

If you’re not interested in standing outside in the cold holding a beer for two hours before the game, you’re not alone. Many of our clients have opted to book a pre-game “tailgate” at a local bar. Contact us if you’re entertaining some indoors-y clients and we’ll put together a great tailgate package at one of our favorite sports bars.

This might sound like a lot of work. So consider taking all these office tailgate party ideas and rolling them into one by booking a pre-packaged tailgate event through Kapow. Request your VIP all-inclusive tailgate here.
