Football Tailgates

Washburn Football Tailgate

Alumni, friends and all Ichabod fans have a place to tailgate, hang out and catch up with friends before each home football game. Look for the largest tent on the Memorial Union Lawn north of the stadium two hours before kickoff for food, drink and cheering on the Ichabods! We are teaming up with Washburn Athletics to provide a bigger tailgate experience.

We'll be serving catered food from Hy-Vee, cold beer from Strathman Sales Company, hot dogs, chips, sides and other beverages. As usual, the event is free for members of the Alumni Association and $5 for others. Thank you to our sponsors, Hy-Vee and Strathman Sales Company!
