Northern Michigan University will enhance the fan tailgate experience at Wildcat home football games by featuring local cuisine and music.
During each of the six home football Saturdays this season, local bands will perform and NMU Department of Athletics staff will help local restaurants and food trucks set up just outside the Superior Dome main entrance on the Presque Isle Avenue side.
The goal is to engage local businesses and create an exciting, friendly environment for Wildcat fans prior to home football games.
Interested businesses should contact NMU Athletics' Event Operations Coordinator Byron Synstegaard at firstname.lastname@example.org or 906-227-2855 for more information.
