Dunwoody Community Tailgate
Saturday, October 19, 1:00 - 11:00
Rain or Shine, the tailgate is on!
Bring your favorite lawn chair or a blanket and join your neighbors for a free community tailgate featuring college football on the big screen at the tree lined lawn along the parkway outside Marlow’s Tavern and Karen Cannon Realtors. The featured game will be the University of Georgia against the Kentucky Wildcats (Time TBD), as well as other fan favorites based on the day’s broadcast schedule.
There is no fee to enter the tailgate area and seating will be available on a first come, first served basis. Enjoy a special tailgate themed menu of items for purchase from Marlow’s Tavern or try samples from Marlow’s Big Green Egg. The outdoor tailgate bar will feature a special signature cocktail and craft beer from Athens own Creature Comforts Brewery (Sorry, due to current ordinances, no outside coolers will be allowed). Challenge your friends and family to cornhole, giant Jenga, and other lawn games. An on-site DJ will keep the lawn hopping during commercial breaks and announce giveaways from Marlow’s Tavern, Creature Comforts Beer, and others throughout the day. Four Fat Cows hand crafted ice cream will also be on-site to keep fans cool and satisfy any sweet cravings.

Who can attend? This Tailgate is for everyone in our community. We want to provide a fun and safe environment where your family and friends can all watch a game, hangout, play some games, and enjoy great food/drinks by local businesses! Invite your friends and come by for the whole afternoon or just for one game!
What do I need to bring? We recommend you bring your own lawn chairs or a blanket (We have limited seating available on first come/first serve basis). Make sure to bring some money for food/drinks available for purchase on site by Marlow’s Tavern, Four Fat Cows ice cream, as well as Creature Comforts beer. No outside coolers or beverages are allowed on the Village Lawn. While most of our Community is dog friendly this event is anticipating a large turnout, so we request you leave your four-legged friend(s) at home so there is more room for guests.
Are there any activities to do? We will be broadcasting college football games throughout the afternoon/evening on a huge Outdoor LCD TV! We will also have tailgate games like giant connect four, Jenga, and 3 cornhole boards on the lawn. Both Karen Cannon Realtors (KCR) and Marlow’s Tavern will have giveaways available throughout the day! For more details check in with the KCR Tent at the tailgate.
Where can we order food? Marlow’s Tavern has crafted a special tailgate themed menu available for purchase outside on the Village Lawn. Their full menu will be available for purchase inside as well. Four Fat Cows will be on-site as well with ice cream available for purchase. Press Blend Squeeze will be giving away guac and chip samples as well!
Will restroom facilities be available? Yes! Marlow’s Tavern’s bathrooms are available for all attendees during the Tailgate! We also will have several port-a-johns available in the parking area.
What happens in the event of rain? Rain or shine this event will go on! In the event of heavy rain, we will move the Tailgate to Marlow’s covered patio. The Outdoor LCD TV screen can handle a pop up shower or light drizzle, but will be moved adjacent to Marlow’s Tavern covered patio so all attendees can watch the games without getting wet in the event of a downpour.
How do we get to the Tailgate? We encourage everyone to walk/bike to the Village Lawn. Parking will also be available throughout the Dunwoody Village parking lot. See out map below for directions.
What about safety? We will have an off-duty officer on site for the duration of the Tailgate event.
