Where are the Pittsburgh Steelers Tailgate Lots?

Because Steelers tailgating has been passed down through generations, lots of the lots are reserved for season permit holders. Plus, parking on the North Shore can be tight. Most of the spaces in parking lots around Acrisure Stadium (specifically the Gold, Red, and Green lots) are pre-sold, many of them for the whole season. However, there are options for single-game ticket holders in the Green or Red lots. Just make sure you buy those parking passes well in advance.

In general, the Gold lots are known for having the most dedicated Steelers fans who have tailgated for generations. Similarly, the Red lot tailgating scene is also popular, but is a lot more family-friendly.
