Updated 9.2020: The Town will not be allowing tailgating in public parking facilities through October 31st. Additionally, the Town will not charge the Special Event rate on home game days. Normal hourly rates will be charged at all parking facilities.
This is consistent with both UNC’s restriction on tailgating on campus through September, and the Town’s State of Emergency declaration that restricts gatherings of people outside to no more than 25.
The Town will evaluate this at the end of October if/when the State of Emergency expires.
