Friends of Harvard Athletics Tailgate at Fall Fest 2019
Saturday, November 2 | 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. | O'Donnell Baseball Field


Kick off Fall Fest 2019 at the Friends of Harvard Athletics Tailgate, hosted by the Department of Harvard Athletics and Harvard Varsity Club.

With seven teams in action, this is the perfect way to reconnect with teammates, classmates, fellow alumni, and friends before cheering the Crimson on to victory.


Your $10 registration includes a complimentary lunch buffet, open bar featuring a signature cocktail, mimosas, beer, and wine, and a ticket to the football game versus Dartmouth.

To RSVP, simply click this link, enter promo code FRIENDS if needed, select the number of tickets you would like to the tailgate and football game from the "Fall Fest Friends Tailgate + Football Ticket" option, and complete your order. If you are having trouble, you can call the Harvard Ticket Office at (617) 495-2211.

All alumni, family, and friends of Harvard Athletics and the HVC are welcome, but space is limited and we expect to sell out.
