Detroit Lions Eastern Market Tailgating
Tailgating for October 29 • Tailgating for December 16 & 31 Ever since the Detroit Lions moved downtown to Ford Field in 2002, Eastern Market has been a lively, open-air gathering place for thousands of enthusiastic Lions fans. Our parking lots provide plenty of space to park and set up a party around your vehicle. Shuttles run continuously between Ford Field and Eastern Market or tailgaters can make the quick 10-minute walk across the bridge to the football stadium. Proceeds made from tailgating go to support our mission of operating our markets, providing greater access to good food, and growing local food businesses.
