Whether you’re a frenzied fanatic or you prefer the social aspects of the sport, tailgating is the perfect place to eat, drink and mingle among fellow football fans. Before you roll up to the stadium for some pre-game fun and to cheer on your favorite Ohio football team, be sure you’re stocked up all the essential tailgating gear! Check out our guide to some of the best places to shop at Easton for all of your game day gear.
Sport Your Spirit
Repping your team’s colors, mascot and more is a must when heading out for tailgate season. If you’re wanting to rock scarlet and grey from head to toe, we recommend checking out The Buckeye Corner, the official team store for Buckeye Nation. There you’ll find OSU apparel, jerseys, hats, novelties and even official Nike Ohio State University gear! We also suggest taking a look at our blog specifically about what to wear tailgating, featuring outfit inspirations from shops like Lids, PINK, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Celebrate Local.
Game Day Gear
Get all your must-have game day gear like grills, coolers, canopies, tables and chairs, games, and more at a number of Easton retailers! For a one-stop-shop experience, we recommend hitting up Dick’s Sporting Goods. For OSU-specific gear, head over to Conrad’s College Gifts.
Beer, Brats and Chips, OH MY!
No tailgate is complete without a fully stocked cooler and overflowing snack table! Feed all of your hungry fans, no matter their tastes, with supplies from several Easton stores. If you’re looking to go big or go home when it comes to your snack shopping, we recommend hitting up Costco, located at Easton Gateway. For more diverse, or even health-conscious options, check out Whole Foods Market in Easton Gateway or Trader Joe’s in the South District.
