Assemble the Perfect Tailgating Kit for Your Car

Few things mark the season more than a tailgate party. A time-honored tradition, the tailgate party is a cornerstone of not only football season but possibly American culture as well. That said, you can’t truly enjoy a proper tailgate party without preparation. Let’s take a look at what you’ll need.


A party is nothing without guests to attend it, so it’s important that you find ways of ensuring their comfort and willingness to stick around. Having comfortable places to sit is critical to keeping the party going. Whether its camping chairs, picnic blankets or something else entirely, just make sure to have a place for people to park.

Tailgating in the Fall


Food makes a tailgate party come alive, but your guests are going to need something to eat off of. Ensure you have the basic essentials for everyone to eat with, including utensils, plates, and napkins. Assuming there will be drinks, which is likely, don’t forget to include cups on that list as well.

Grilling Tools

Speaking of food, it’s probably a safe bet that you will be grilling. In the hectic pre-game haze of packing, it can be easy to forget the tools necessary to actually grill. Tongs and a spatula or a must and a cutting board will make life significantly easier.

Cleaning Supplies

When the party is all over and everyone is satiated, it’s important to remember clean-up. Nobody wants to be the group that leaves trash lying around and you want to make sure that your car remains free of garbage as well. Pack a few bags: little ones for saving leftover food and big ones for disposing of trash. Packing several large rags is immensely helpful, as they can be used to not only wipe up spills but also to wrap dirty utensils or dinnerware in.

If you follow the tips listed above, you are likely to make your next tailgate party a smash. Have a happy season!
