Do You Know This Hidden Seattle Seahawks Tailgate Spot?
Most people that are lucky enough to go to a Seahawks football game in Seattle think that the home for "fan tailgating" is right in front of the stadium. You have know idea how wrong that is, and you might be surprised exactly how hidden and out of the way the TRUE tailgate locations are for the 12's! This is how to find these hidden spots, just promise not to tell anyone!
Ask anyone that knows where Seahawks tailgating is and they will probably say "Oh yeah, at Hawk Alley!" You go to your phone and try a search...nothing. Where is this place at? It is actually farther from the stadium then you might think.
Do a Google search for the Krispy Kreme donut shop just down the street at 1900 1st Ave S, Seattle. Once you get there find a parking spot because "Hawk Alley" starts right across the street from there.
There are Seahawks tailgate parties in both parking lots in the picture. The tailgate located on the left is the one I specifically hang out at all season. Ask for Chris and donate to join anytime all season with beer and breakfast. This corner is the entrance for "Hawk Alley". To see the rest of the tailgating walk straight across the intersection towards the alley. When you get there look down both sides. There will be campers with Seahawks fans all the way down both sides starting early on game days. Most tailgates welcome newcomers as long as you contribute with beer and food money!
Sadly, one of the best tailgates in Hawk Alley the "Beast Bus" is no longer throwing tailgates in 2022, so you missed it! The Beast Bus and Hawks Alley Tailgate used to be to the left once you reach the alley and walked down almost to the Starbucks building.
It used to be at the location in the picture below. It just looked a lot different with the party full of people. The last few years with covid and the homeless problem increasing in that area has effected the amount of tailgating in Hawk Alley. With less people, the organizers say it was too expensive to keep putting the event on.
There were literally hundreds of Seahawks fans, a live band or DJ, multiple bars, and even BBQ available all for one small entry fee. If your interested in finding out more and look at old pics, go to the old Hawk Alley Tailgate Facebook page. I know that spot is now open if you are looking to create a large iconic tailgate location of your own. I am sure the Hawk Alley Tailgate guys would put you in contact with the owners if your interested.
