The Detroit Lions moved to Ford Field in downtown Detroit in 2002 and thousands of their most dedicated tailgaters 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 shuttles run every 15 minutes. Tailgating attracts approximately 3000 Lions fans at each game.
TAILGATE AND PARKING LOTS OPEN FOUR HOURS PRIOR TO EACH GAME AND CLOSE ONE HOUR AFTER THE GAME ENDS.
Eastern Market offers round trip shuttle service to all Detroit Lions Home Games for
$5.00 round trip from Eastern Market to Ford Field. Shuttle service wrist bands can be purchased through the order form or on game day.
Several of the area restaurants such as Vivio’s Food and Spirits and Roma Café provide free shuttle service with purchase at their restaurants.
