Fire Safety in Vandyville
In an effort to make Vandyville compliant with all fire safety codes, there will be some reconfiguration of tents on Natchez Trace to create fire breaks between tents. Per the Vanderbilt University fire safety guidelines, the use of open flame fire pits is no longer permitted during all tailgate activities — this includes Vandyville. We are working with fire safety officials to make your pregame tailgating a safe and enjoyable experience. Please use these guidelines for Vandyville this season.

– The grill or cooking device shall be used on level ground.
– The grill or cooking device shall not be used under a tent or membrane structure.
– All manufacturer guidelines must be followed at all times.
– Each tent is responsible for having a means to extinguish fire readily available at all times (this includes a grease fire, gas, charcoal or wood fire).

If you have questions, please contact Jessamyn Davis in the Office of Emergency Preparedness, Fire and Workplace Safety at

Located in the McGugin Center parking lot, Kids Zone opens three hours prior to kickoff and closes at kickoff. Kids Zone is free for all fans. 

There are a variety of activities for kids of all ages including inflatables, face painting, games, balloon artists and more.
