2016 NY Jets Tailgate Schedule

by Joe on April 22, 2016

Here we are, the 2016 season! I am really looking forward to building off the success and turn around the Jets 2015 season was under rookie head coach Bowles. I am also hard at work making sure the 2016 season is our best yet, with some new menu items, equipment, etc to make our parties the best they can be and the best not only for Jets fans but the best party in all of the NFL!

Season Tailgate Passes

If you are planning on joining us for a few games, the TGJ Season Tailgate Pass is a great option. In addition to being a significant savings off the gameday donation, it helps us raise some funds early for equipment purchases we need to make in preparation for the season. This summer, we are hoping to buy a new tailgate trailer as the current one has been too small since pretty much the day we bought it. This has meant a day and a half loading the trailer for every game, and 2 hours of loading post tailgate in the lot. A bigger trailer would allow us to also provide more amenities and an even better food experience by allowing more equipment to be loaded. We are hoping 30-40 people will sign up for this pass and help us get a portion of the money to get the right trailer.

We will be offering a limited number of passes for a limited time. I am planning on keeping this active until mid May, but may close it down any time before that.

$250 a savings of $130 off the gameday donation


The pass entitles one person to access to all 8 2016 home NY Jets regular season tailgate parties

VIP Tent

We offer an upgraded semi private VIP experience for those with a small group that want to join the biggest and best NY Jets tailgate party at Metlife, but also want a small private area for their group. These are in limited supply, with between zero to three available per game depending on the schedule and bookings. There are two options:

  • For a flat fee of $400 we offer a tent/keg option. We set up a 10×10 tent and personal keg plus co2 draft system.
  • For a flat fee of $650 we offer a tent/keg/waitress option. This includes everything plus a waitress who will skip the food lines and handle getting food for the group.

These fees are on top of the per head donation for that game, which typically runs $35-$50 depending on game and tailgate party menu. These are meant for groups of 4-20 people. You can also contact us at joe@tailgatejoe.com for other options to enhance your VIP tent.

Upgraded Experiences

For those that want something a little different, like a special menu, your own tent, etc. Want a full NY Steak house spread with the top prime grade cuts available? Italian specialties? An oyster bar? A parking lot poker party? We can make it happen.
