Eastern Market is home to Detroit Lions Tailgating, which is sponsored by Carhartt. No matter if the Lions are winning or losing, tailgating in the Eastern Market is always a good time!
The Detroit Lions moved from the Pontiac Silverdome to Ford Field in downtown Detroit in 2002 and thousands of their most dedicated tailgaters came with them and made Eastern Market their tailgate tradition. As one of the safest and most vibrant districts in Detroit the Eastern Market is the perfect place to tailgate.
Eastern Market is the largest tailgating location closest to Ford Field and accommodates 750 spaces northeast of the stadium. The lots are a ten minute walk from Ford Field, and a shuttle runs every ten minutes. Tailgating attracts approximately 3000 Lions fans at each game.
Tickets are $45 for cars/trucks, $75 campers/small buses up to 33', $130 for RVs, and $160 Motor Coaches and HotTubs tailgate parking.
- If you want an additional parking space for your tent, grill, ect. that will cost an additional $45. For example: You purchase a $45 ticket for your car and you want to occupy the parking space next to you that will be an additional $45 because you are using two parking spaces.
Non-Tailgate parking tickets are $15. Several of the area restaurants such as Vivio’s Food & Spirits and Roma Café provide free shuttle service with purchases at their restaurants. Tailgate and parking lots open four hours prior to each game and close 2 hours after the game ends.
Please note we do not reserve spaces unless you are purchasing a corporate package. If you are interested in a corporate package please call (313) 833-9300.
Eastern Market offers round trip shuttle service to all Detroit Lions Home Games. $5.00 round trip from Eastern Market to Ford Field. Shuttle service/wristbands can be purchased
