Annual Events

Gator Collective is proud to host the following events once a year- so if you couldn’t make it this year, don’t worry, there’s always next year!


Imagine the scene: you, your friends or relatives, and your favorite Gator players and coaches all enjoying drinks and fun conversations on the grounds of Condron Ballpark. Well, you don’t have to imagine it- because you can make it happen!

On the eve of Gator football season, come join us at Florida’s baseball stadium to partake in a fun social gathering to kick off the sports year in grand style. Our guests this year include men’s basketball coach Todd Golden, women’s basketball coach Kelly Rae Finley, baseball coach Kevin O’Sullivan, and more to be named later- we’re still working on that, so stay tuned!

Please note that because of the demand for this event, and because of the limited space available at Condron Ballpark, we’re exclusively opening up ticket opportunities to Gator Collective members first. Ensure your spot at this year’s TailGator event by committing to Gator Collective today!


How would you like to spend an afternoon hanging out with some of your favorite Gator football players on Touchdown Terrace at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium? Great news- Gator Collective makes that happen with our annual Fan Fest event!

Typically held in the late springtime, Fan Fest is your opportunity to connect with your favorite football players in a relaxed, casual setting. You’ll have an afternoon’s worth of opportunities to take pictures, get autographs, enjoy some Sonny’s BBQ, and get to learn more about the individual side of your favorite athletes.
Please be aware that due to the high demand for this event and the limited space in Touchdown Terrace, we open up ticket sales to Gator Collective members before the general public.

Other Events

Relationship Ribs

Following this past year’s Florida-FSU football game, former Florida All-American Shannon Snell hosted a special “Relationship Ribs” cookout featuring some of his most delicious food! For a few hours on a refreshingly crisp November afternoon, fans and players got to interact and relive Florida’s rivalry game victory!


Gator Gathering

Hosted at The Porch in Winter Park, FL, Gator fans and football players had the chance to connect in a more informal atmosphere at our Gator Gathering event. Players took the opportunity to sign autographs and take pictures with fans, and a local YouTube broadcaster even gave young fans a chance to talk sports with him!



Perhaps there’s no better way for fans and athletes to engage in a friendly competition than with a day of bowling! Our very first Gator Collective event took place last September at a local bowling alley, and gave Gator fans a chance to team up with- and go head-to-head against- some of their favorite athletes.


Basketball Game Tailgate

Tailgating with the players you root for is a rare experience, but Gator Collective made it happen last year! Before a Gator basketball game, fans and athletes got to connect with a pregame tailgate that brought them closer together and formed new relationships that continue to grow to this day.
