BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (CNN) — It’s not football season without some tailgating.

Saturday, September 7th is National Tailgating Day.

That means it’s time to celebrate the way many football fans would anyway – by hanging out with fellow friends before the big game, grilling up some delicious food, and having an all-around good time!

National Tailgating Day was introduced in 2016 and always falls on the first Saturday in September.

Although tailgating has been a big part of football culture for years, its exact origins are still unknown.
