28 Cute Tailgate Captions For Instagram & Wingin' It On The Weekends

Originally Published: 

I might not know every football team in the league, but I do know the football calendar marks the start and end of tailgate season. From the first day of fall until the Super Bowl, dedicated sports fans spend their weekends by the grill, preparing to take home a win. If you're one of them, you'll need some cute tailgate captions for your inevitable Instagram posts and wingin' it on the weekends.

I mean, did you even celebrate the potential touchdowns and extra points if you didn't take a picture of your pre-game spread? I'd argue the hot dogs topped with condiments, bowls of zesty guacamole, and loaded nachos are some of the most important parts of the entire experience. They get your friends, family members, and neighbors geared up for the quarter tosses, epic first downs, and hilarious commercials. Most importantly, the good times remind every fan that, no matter what the final score is, it's pretty sweet to do things together.

It's always fun to set up your tent and play endless rounds of cornhole. Some people might enjoy listening to music or starting a few pick-up games. Others are there for the snacks and some quality socializing. Either way, the laughs, new memories, and picture-perfect containers with onion dip should be captured in your camera roll and awarded with a well-deserved spots on your feed.
