Three Ways to Broncos Game

Not only is Mile High Stadium centrally located just off I-25, which makes it easy to get to, but its footprint is massive! So, that means plenty of space to roam around and enjoy everything that Game Day has to offer! From “Mane” Street to Tailgating with the pros, downtown Denver is LIT AF during Game Day, and these are just a few ways you can enjoy it!

The Touchdown

Before Gameday, get some sleep to ensure you are well rested for the long day ahead because you will spend a whole day in Denver! This is gonna give you the entire Broncos experience!

This “Touchdown” experience will start about 6 hours before game day. Grab your bag and pack it full of whatever essentials you need for a long day out of the house! Hop on the RTD and head downtown!

Your first stop will be Little Machine Brewery, located just outside of the Mile High Stadium, where you’ll enjoy some of the best microbrews in the state! Then, grab a bite to eat right down the street at ANY of the local Mexican restaurants planted on Federal Blvd because they are all great!

Now that your tummy is full of Colorado goodness, head for a short visit to Meow Wolf Denver (read our blog about Meow Wolf) and enjoy something truly out of this world! Game time is getting close, so what to do now? It’s time to Party!

Walk through the parking lots of endless tailgaters and enjoy the Broncos lifestyle! Hang out and meet fellow fans and enjoy all things orange and blue! Take a look at the Mini Mile High Stadium in Parking Lot J. or visit “Mane” street, located next to parking lot Z. You do not want to miss out on all the family-friendly festivities, including the Broncos Cheerleaders & Stampede Drumline performances.

Once you’ve had your fill of all that Broncos goodness, make your way to Gate 4 and enjoy the official Pre-game Tailgate Party in the Mile High Mountain Village! Now you are in, so sit back and enjoy all the Might High magic that is to come!

The Tailgater

We talked about walking through the tailgaters in “The Touchdown Experience,” but how does one become a Broncos Tailgater? Grab yourself a Tailgate pass from the Bronco’s Website and park your car outside of the Stadium…easy as that.

Tailgating can occur in the front or behind your vehicle, but your parking pass is good for one spot only, so respect your surroundings! Bring some chairs, good food, and beverages of choice, and post up before the game! Just make sure you break down your tailgating camp 45 minutes before the game starts!

Tailgate parking begins 3 hours before the start of any game so make sure you get in line early!

Don’t want to park yourself? Well, there are a lot of local tailgating clubs you can join, like the Sons of Mile High!

Remember to follow the Fan Code of Conduct cause we want to tailgate forever! 

The Blitzer

We get it, not everyone has time to tailgate or hang out in Denver ALL day, so if that is your situation, The Blitzer is for you!

You already have your ticket, so you are good to go to the game. Head down to the Stadium via RTD, the BroncosRIDE, the Broncos Shuttle, or bike. Then join your fellow fans and walk through Mane Street to catch a Broncos “vibe.” Head through security, grab grub, and get ready for Mile High magic!

How to Get the Best Deals for a Colorado Rockies Game?

Did you know the Broncos Games have been sold out for over 420+ games? Yep, Mile High football is so popular that every home game since the 1970 season has been completely sold out!

Sadly that doesn’t leave very many cheap tickets out there, and you are forced to go through third parties, but you can always find some last-minute deals. Or, better yet, head down to the Stadium and catch someone who is “looking to buy tickets” they will point you in the right direction…Always be careful and remember if it’s too good of a deal to be true, it probably is.

The official Broncos ticket resale information can be found here, and they are offering Half Price Tickets starting at only $19!
