Dear Parents,

Are you ready for AOS Day at Georgia Tech?  Not only will this momentous event be great fun for your family, but it also gives your scholars an up-close and personal view of college life.  Also, watching the football game is not the only way your family can enjoy your time at the stadium.  Enhance your family’s experience by arriving early to participate in all the pregame festivities.  These activities include:

  • WreckFest
    Three hours before kick-off, Georgia Tech fans gather on Bobby Dodd Way to enjoy WreckFest. WreckFest celebrates our Yellow Jackets with a pregame tailgate party with family fun including live music, interactive games, inflatables, food, and fan apparel. WreckFest is a great way to begin your game day as you get ready for an exciting football game and cheer on the players as they walk through Yellow Jacket Alley (Fowler Street) and into the stadium.
  • Pictures with Cheerleaders
  • During WreckFest, scholars will have the opportunity to take pictures with the Georgia Tech Cheerleading team.
  • Yellow Jacket Alley
    Be the first to greet the team! Two hours and 30 minutes prior to each home game, make your way over to Yellow Jacket Alley (Brittain Drive) to see your favorite players up close and cheer them on as they march into Bobby Dodd Stadium. Listen for the whistle to blow 15 minutes before the team is to arrive.
  • Georgia Tech Marching Band Concert at the Campanile
    About an hour before kickoff, fans go to the Campanile to enjoy a special pregame concert from Georgia Tech’s very own marching band. This performance is a treat and gets fans in the mood to cheer on their favorite team.
  • Georgia Tech Marching Band & Cheerleaders on the Callaway Plaza
    Steps Head over to Callaway Plaza approximately 40 minutes before kickoff to take in the sounds of the Georgia Tech Marching band before you head in to the game! Georgia Tech Cheerleaders will be on-hand to make sure all Yellow Jackets are pumped up before kickoff.
  • Wreck Leading Team on Grant Field 
    Bobby Dodd Stadium hosts one of the game’s most underrated traditions. There’s no better time to see The Ramblin’ Wreck, the iconic, restored 1930 Model A Ford Sport Coupe that has led the Yellow Jackets onto the field for every home game since 1961. The car captures the spirit of the engineering school and continues to serve as the official mascot of the student body at Georgia Tech.
