Official Cal Football Tailgates

We are overjoyed to announce the return of two of our traditional in-person tailgates this fall — one at home for young alums against division rival Colorado, and the other preceding the 124th Big Game at Stanford. We look forward to celebrating our beloved Golden Bears with you! Go Bears!
