How to Throw the Ultimate At-Home Vikings Tailgate Party
Tailgating: the must-have game day experience. But, you don’t have to be at the game to get in on the fun. Simply follow our instructions and your guests will be cheering for more (even that one Packers fan who seems to infiltrate every crowd).
First, get in the game-day (and DIY) spirit with football décor like this yardline bunting to string along many surfaces of your house.

The hot ticket item on any Vikings fans’ list—the stadium! So what, you can’t make it to the brand new, tricked-out, fancy schmancy, U.S. Bank Stadium in person (definitely not resentful). Bring the stadium to you instead! Try your hand at a snack stadium. Follow this step-by-step guide (printables included) to create your own mini arena-of-edible-goodness that will leave your guests impressed.

And there will be drinking—of course. These cute straws add purple and gold to every party-goer’s beverage. Cheers!
Next on the game day grub menu is a Viking Burger. These horned burgers will help show off your Vikings pride. Maybe throw on your Helga hat and join the fun.
Smile and say SKOL! Make sure to remember the occasion with some good ol’ fashion photobooth fun. To really spice the photos up, add these Vikings props.

Finally, the ambiance can make or break the festivities. So, press play and get the party started with tailgating tunes. This playlist has a little bit of everything so all your guests can get their groove on. Country? Got it. Old school? Check. Hip hop? It’s there too!
Follow these tips, break out your celebration dance and cheers to a successful tailgate experience—and cross your fingers for a Vikings win!
