The Bell Center’s 9th Annual Tailgate Challenge

Saturday, August 26, 2017 – 11:00 a.m.- 2:00 p.m.
On the streets in front of The Bell Center – 1700 29th Court South, Homewood 35209

The Tailgate Challenge provides a fun way for football fans to celebrate and anticipate the upcoming football season while supporting The Bell Center for Early Intervention Programs. Event goers will enjoy tastes of tailgating food at various team tents during an afternoon of music, kid friendly events and team rivalry. Celebrity judges will be on hand to judge each of the teams on most team spirit, best tasting food, and best all around. Team tent boosters are responsible for providing their own tailgate tent and team decorations to show their spirit. Each team will also provide a “taste” of tailgating food that may be prepared either on site or brought already prepared to the tent. Teams are not asked to provide enough food to fully feed the crowd, merely to give the attendees a taste of the tailgate food they have prepared.
