If you're family is full of Demon Deacon fans, tailgating just got more convenient. Lowes Foods, based in Winston-Salem, has created a unique new program for Wake Forest Football fans called “From Our Tailgate to Yours.” The new program is part of the existing Lowes Foods to Go online shopping program. However, rather than shopping for your groceries online and swinging by the store for the folks at Lowes Foods to pack your trunk with your already shopped-for weekly stock of food, fans go to lowesfoods.com/deacons and place game day orders for tailgate food, beverages and other items. Then, the orders are delivered directly to their tailgates by one of Lowes Foods’ vintage trucks.

“Our partnership with Wake Forest Athletics as sponsor of Deacon Tailgate Town has been great for us, the football program and fans alike. Now, we’re taking it to another level with the ability to deliver tailgate orders directly to fans in the BB&T Field parking lot,” says Lowes Foods President Tim Lowe. 

Fans also need to know that their tailgate orders need to be placed online by 8 p.m. the night prior to game day. Unlike the Lowes Foods to Go program, there is no additional cost to customers.

"Customers pay the same prices they would pay at a Lowes Foods store with no delivery fee,” says Lowe. 

“Since opening Deacon Tower nearly a decade ago, we at Wake Forest Athletics have been on a mission to make ours one of the best game day experiences in America,” says Bill Oakes​, Wake Forest Athletics senior associate athletic director.  “Having Lowes Foods set up a mini store within Deacon Tailgate Town and making deliveries in a vintage truck is just an incredible program for our fans that no other football program offers. I can’t wait to see the smiling faces of fans getting their pictures taken with the vintage truck.”

Including the Sept. 17 home game, there are six opportunities to take advantage of tailgate delivery at BB&T Field. Click HERE for the full 2016 Wake Forest University Demon Deacon Football Schedule.
