The LA Tailgate Fest is an innovative country music festival being held at Leal Ranch in Eastvale, California, August 17th and 18th. The festival caters to country music enthusiasts who enjoy showing up prior to the live performances to have a pre-concert tailgate party. Patrons find this festival unique because it brings the stages to the audience instead of the other way around.
There is no need to pack up the party to go inside. Rather, visitors can continue their game of cornhole, finish their barbecue, and stay in place at their personal party set-up while watching their favorite performers. In other words, the tailgating continues throughout the entire festival.

Jacked Up Truck Competition
Whether fans want to compete for prizes–such as ticket upgrades or Yeti coolers–or just watch other competitors, the Jacked Up Truck Competition is one of the funnest events of the festival.
On both nights of the festival, local artists perform acoustic sets of popular country songs in a campfire setting. Tailgate Unplugged is a great way to end the evening with friends and family.
All New Boots and Bikinis
This year’s Tailgate Fest has a new event, which is an all-night pool party called Boots and Bikinis. This event is for VIP pass members only, and is essentially a hotel pool party that is brought to the patrons. It includes live DJ spinning, horseshoes, beer pong, pool volleyball, and Tailgate Unplugged performances. A poolside waitstaff is also available to serve specialty cocktails from festival sponsors.
RV and Camping Information and Rules
LA Tailgate Fest is a great place to take an RV rental! The Tailgate Fest is an outdoor event and after patrons are parked within the festival space, they can move around to various areas, depending on their wristband access. However, any vehicle that leaves the grounds may not return until the next day.
RV spaces are 20 x 50 and only one motor vehicle is allowed per site. Tent spots are 30 x 50 and all camping is dry camping. Services offered on the campgrounds include food and beverage vendors, trash collection, water refilling stations for water bottles only, hand washing stations and restrooms.
RVs with generators are welcome, but there are no hookups in any spaces. Tents and RVs cannot commingle, and no car camping is permitted. The campsite is located directly behind the stage area and is approximately a three minute walk from the campsite.
Campers are required to keep their areas clean, and recycling bins are provided in both camping sections. Those camping in a 5th Wheel are required to keep the companion vehicle with the fifth wheel, or if it does not fit, in a nearby lot allocated for companion vehicles.
