Tailgate / Watch Parties

2023 Bearkat Football Season


The Alumni Association is very excited about the move to Conference USA! There are changes to tailgating locations for both Bearkat Alley and the exclusive Alumni Association tailgate.

SHSU Bearkat Alley has moved for the 2023 season to lot 12 at the intersection of Bowers Blvd. and Bobby K Marks Dr. Please read the university policies and procedures for tailgating HERE

The Alumni Association will host pre-game tailgates in the new Bearkat Pavilion between the stadium press box and the athletic fieldhouse. This prime location allows for a fantastic atmosphere that captures the spirit of our Bearkat Pride. The tailgate will continue to be FREE for association members and $10 for all non-members over the age of 12.  

The new tailgating space promises to be an excellent spot for reconnecting with old friends, enjoying delicious food and drinks, and engaging in spirited conversations about our beloved team.
