The Cyclone Tent program is the most exclusive tailgating opportunity on Iowa State football game days. The excitement of the Cyclone Tent program is perfect for: corporate outings, alumni gatherings, social parties, fraternity or sorority socials, birthday parties or anniversaries.

Two types of tents, standard and auxiliary, are available for purchase.

  • Standard tents: cardinal and gold striped tents are 20' x 30' and include picnic tables and parking passes. Standard tents are available for the season or a single game provide seating for 36-48 people. Standard tents are located north and south of Jack Trice Stadium.
  • Auxiliary tents: available in a variety of sizes. Auxiliary tents are only available on a single-game basis and include tables & chairs and parking passes. Auxiliary tents can be setup in several areas around Jack Trice Stadium.

Game tickets would need to be purchased in addition to the tent. Tickets can be purchased on the tent order form, along with the tent, or seperately. Group prices may be available for certain games based on quantity purchased.
