TimTheTatman is holding a huge tailgate party in association with GameSquare and YouTube Gaming, bringing a unique gaming festival to life

Timothy “TimTheTatman” Betar is a massive Dallas Cowboys fan, so it’s no surprise he wants to throw his own Tailgate. That’s why GameSquare has partnered with YouTube Gaming to present TimTheTatman’s Tailgate, a two-day festival combining gaming, sports, music, and pop culture into the ultimate tailgate experience.

Taking place at the Ford Center at The Star, in Frisco, Texas, on July 16th-17th, TimTheTatman’s Tailgate will be like no pre-game party you’ve ever seen.

Don’t expect people cooking bbq out the back of their trucks. Instead expect musical performances from top country artists including a headlining performance from Kane Brown and EDM artists, meet-and-greets with TimTheTatman, a $25,000 car show, classic yard games, and more.
