  • Acceptable Items/Bag Policy

    I always start with this first, based on experience. I recommend you travel light! As you can see, Gillette has a very specific bag policy on what you can and can’t bring in.

    Only clear plastic bags that comply with the Gillette Stadium Bag Policy are allowed into Gillette Stadium on ALL ticketed event and game days. Compliant bags are defined above. This policy is in effect for all Gillette Stadium ticketed events.

    Tailgating in general parking lots may begin when the lots open to general parking unless directed by parking/security or public safety officials. However, open fires are not allowed. All fires must be contained within a suitable and appropriate fire burning device and must be movable in the event of an emergency. “Fire pits” with open flames are not considered movable in the event of an emergency, and therefore are not allowed. All fires and/or grills should not be left unattended. Used charcoal briquettes and/or other burning material must be disposed of properly and not left on the parking surface to burn out.  Click Here for more.
