Taking transit or walking to BMO Field? Fans attending home Argos games this summer can now experience a tailgate atmosphere without having to drive down to the game!

Introducing The Shipyard, the Argos’ new pre-game fan festival space located at the foot of Hotel X and in front of the Stanley Barracks at Exhibition Place. The outdoor festival area will serve BBQ food and drinks, including $4 beers, prior to every game at BMO Field this season. Spread across acres of licensed patio, The Shipyard will be a place for Argos fans to meet up before the game to eat, drink and socialize before heading into the stadium.

“We launched tailgating last week, and today, we are excited to introduce “The Shipyard,” an outdoor festival space for fans who commute or arrive by foot or bike and are looking for a pregame party,” said Sara Moore, Argos Senior Vice President, Business Operations.
