Without a doubt, it's Lot 8. Not only is Lot 8 the best place to tailgate at RFK Stadium it is arguably the best place to tailgate in all of Washington, DC.
DC United tailgaters are fun, polite people who tailgate very similar to football fans - you'll just see soccer balls whizzing around instead of footballs. The environment is so friendly it almost feels like your neighbor's backyard instead of a stadium parking lot in DC.
RFK Stadium is a legendary
place to tailgate - just ask any local football fan that wishes the Redskins
still played here. The parking staff is laid back, parking is cheap, the
parking lot is close to the stadium, and there is all kinds of room for even the most elaborate tailgate setup.
Tailgate Cruiser helps you plan, fund, and throw an awesome
outdoor party with friends.
time do the gates open?
Gates open four hours prior
to the start of the game and parking is usually $15. With the exception
of season ticket holders there is no reserved parking - so claim your location
early because it's first come, first serve. You'll find there are really
no bad parking spots.
