Downtown Tailgate on Henderson St. for Miami game day


Join us for our Downtown Tailgate on Oct. 16 as we block off Henderson St. from vehicle traffic and celebrate this season of Carolina Football and the Chapel Hill community.

Our event will begin three hours before kickoff — at 12:30 p.m. — and wrap up as the game begins at 3:30 p.m.! Enjoy local food and beer throughout the street (choose beer from Gizmo Brew Works Chapel Hill, Imbibe, TRU, Linda’s & Four Corners), play games with friends and family, listen to music from a live local DJ and get ready for Carolina to take down the Hurricanes.

The Marching Tar Heels, the Carolina Cheer & Dance Teams, and Rameses will be celebrating our game day with us for the event! They will all be on-site at 1 p.m.

RSVP on our Facebook Event (It’s free, we’re just following an expected head count!). Henderson Street will be closed for pedestrian traffic only. Paid parking is available along Franklin street, side streets, and parking decks. Find options at parkonthehill.com.

We’ll see you postgame, too, as Downtown Live continues in the evening with live music all along Franklin St.

Join us to support our local businesses, enjoy the fall weather, and make the most of the game day experience in downtown Chapel Hill.

The Rams Club and the UNC General Alumni Association will be on-site with Carolina goodies to add the best blue to your day.
