The Garnet & Gold Tailgate is a Division of Student Affairs (DSA) sponsored program revolving around the fall football schedule at Florida State University. The Garnet & Gold Tailgate are held prior to most home football games. The tailgates start 2 hours prior to kick–off and are alcohol and tobacco free to encourage students to limit engaging in high–risk behavior and to provide a safe space for students who participate in game day activities. The Garnet & Gold Tailgate initiative was started in 2007.
