Gameday's Best Tailgate

Join us 2½ hours before kickoff, every football home game, for gameday's best tailgate. Just steps from Camp Randall Stadium at Union South, Badger Bash offers food, drinks and entertainment—indoors and out.

The Union has been hosting the family-friendly Badger Bash for 50 years. This event is free, open to the public and we welcome our opponents' fans, too. The more, the merrier!

Badger Bash Features:

  • UW–Madison Marching Band performance (approx. 1.5 hrs before kickoff)
  • UW–Madison Spirit Squad performances
  • Local celebrity emcees
  • Fun & games by our sponsors
  • Live music
  • Fresh, hot food & beverage options
