Review commonly asked questions for our Concert Tailgating Events at PNC Arts Center

Your tailgate can start up to 3 hours before the opening act. Parking lots always open 4 hours prior to the first act goes on. Our team enters the lots upon the gates opening and secures your tailgate party spots. There is no option to begin earlier due to setup time, however, you can extend up to (2) hours after the first act begins for a fee.

Man Cave Events sets up tailgate parties in one of 2 areas for PNC Concert tailgate parties:

A) North Lot Near D3: this lot is on the Northbound side of the Garden State Parkway. This lot provides school bus shuttles from the lot to the front of the arts center.

B) VIP Lot: for an additional charge or with client supplied parking pass. This location requires that we park along a grassy hill leaving little flat space for tailgating but is in much closer proximity to the venue entrance.

For logistical reasons, we do not setup tailgates in other areas unless it is confirmed at the time of your contract signing.

We welcome groups of any size with no formal minimum or maximum guest restrictions. If guest count exceeds the recommended package total, the may be additional charges for added infrastructure where and when applicable, however, the client can choose to decline the additions (i.e. additional tenting for larger group). Catering packages may be subject to a 15 guest minimum charge unless otherwise noted by MCE.

During Concert: Yes, you may extend your tailgate up to 2 hours while opening acts are on stage for an extension fee. All tailgating must conclude no later than 8pm. 

Post Concert: No. Due to venue rules, post concert tailgating of any kind is prohibited. 

Absolutely! Although we do offer several catering packages to provide a turnkey tailgating solution, you can certainly choose to do your own food. We provide a grill, grilling utensils and essential pack with paper plates/napkins and plastic utensils/cups either way. We do not provide Grill Chef services for customer provided food for liability and food safety reasons.
