Tailgating is allowed at the Georgia Dome in the Yellow Lot or Lot A, known as “The Gulch.”
Other lots surrounding the Georgia Dome also allow tailgating.
The marked parking spaces are for vehicles only. Fans cannot use parking spaces for tents, grills, chairs or other items. All vehicles require a valid parking permit.
Loud amplified music or noise is prohibited in any Georgia Dome lots.
Tailgate tents cannot exceed 8-by-10 feet.
Tailgating equipment (grills, coolers and electronics) may not extend beyond the parking space, or interfere with vehicles driving through the lot.
