Tailgating at Gillette Stadium
Gillette Stadium allows tailgating in all general parking structures before all events, including Patriots games, Revolution games, and concerts. Tailgating is allowed when the lots open to general parking. For Patriots games and concerts, that’s 4 hours before the start of the event. For Revolution games, that’s 2 hours before game time.
