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.

Badger Bash Features:
• Director Mike Leckrone and the full UW Marching Band
• UW Spirit Squad performances
• Local celebrity emcees
• Live music with The Northern Hooks
• Kid zone inflatables
• Fun & games by our sponsors
• Free admission and open to the public
