Dallas Cowboys Football Team


Tailgating in the new Dallas Cowboys football team stadium is allowed in certain sections of the team controlled and private lots. If you want more freedom from the rules of the stadium, you can tailgate at many of the parking lots around the Dallas Cowboys stadium on game day.

Tailgating Lots

The lots at the stadium include the Cowboys lots, the Ranger lots that are available for parking on game day and private lots. In the lots controlled by the Cowboys, no tailgating is allowed in lot 3 and only 10 percent of the space is available for tailgating in lots 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15, and the spaces are assigned on a first come first served basis. The limited tailgating space means you have to come early to the stadium to get one of these spaces.

Prices range from about $45 to $75 for parking regular cars, depending on the closeness of the lot to the Dallas Cowboys football team stadium. The rules and pricing for the private lots vary so make sure the lot allows tailgating before you make any reservations.

For $150, RVs can park in lot 14, which has a campground for RV parking without water or electric hook ups, but it does have a dumpsite. RVs can enter the lot 48 hours before the game and departure on the day following the game is set no later than 5 p.m. Tailgating is allowed only in the RV space, not in the drive aisles.

The regular parking lots open up to five hours before the game starts and closes two hours after the game ends so you have a lot of time to enjoy your tailgating experience at the Dallas Cowboys football team game.


The team controlled and private lots have different rules when it comes to tailgating. The rules for the team controlled lots are as follows:

  • The tailgating space is only for your car and it can not be used for a tent, furniture, grills or other equipment. Tailgating is only allowed on the grass area in the perimeter of the parking lot with a maximum of nine feet wide and 12 deep single assigned tailgating spaces.

  • Tailgating begins when the lots open and ends two hours after the game. You can not save a parking or tailgating space.

  • Other Dallas Cowboys football team fans can use the common areas for picnics and tailgating.

  • You cannot tailgate on the concrete.

  • Disregard for the rules can result in the suspension of your tailgating activities and/or removal from the parking lot.

  • No deep-frying, open flames, amplified sound or selling of merchandise are allowed.

  • Follow the instructions of the security personnel and law enforcement.

The policies of private lots for a Dallas Cowboys football team tailgating event depends on the lot and the operators. The price, time and activities allowed on these lots vary. Even though they are more relaxed than the Cowboys controlled lots they still have rules you have to follow. Call the operator ahead of time to find out the activities allowed on their lot.

If you do not want to cook and just want to enjoy the tailgating experience, you can go to different venues right across from the stadium with Cowboy fans. These operators usually have a fee that includes food and drinks as well as very large screens to watch the game.

  • The Fishbone Grill includes Texas BBQ buffet with brisket, sausages, and drinks. They also have games and prizes as well as autographs with former Cowboys for additional fees.

  • The 1010 Collins is the self-acclaimed ultimate tailgate party on a lot right across the stadium with four 200-inch screen monitors, all you can eat BBQ and free bottomless drinks, all for a reasonable admission price.

Enjoying the Experience

While each NFL team is different, the tailgating experience is a common theme with all the fans and the Dallas Cowboys football team fans are no different. If you have not tailgated, you must feel the camaraderie and fun atmosphere at least once that only the parking lots and locations around the stadium hold on game day.
