Tasty Ways to Kick Off Your NFL Season Event

According to a recent Gallup poll, football is the favorite sport of more than one-third of Americans - including many of us at Marquee Event Rentals. So whether you’re in charge of this year’s Fantasy Football Draft Day, or just a die-hard Packer Backer, here are some fun food ideas to celebrate the start of a new NFL season. Are you ready for some football?

Let’s be real, tailgating isn’t for everyone. Most people prefer a comfortable, temperature-controlled environment where they can enjoy food that didn’t come out of a bag or off of a messy plastic tray.

Hosting a football-themed party at your home, or in a dedicated event space, is a great way to bring fans together. Use napkins, linens, and lighting in your team’s colors and serve regional favorites to enhance the experience. Here are a few ideas from our local event rental experts in each area we serve:


If Titletown is your home away from home, Blatz and beer brats are a must. If you’ve moved away from the Badger State and local favorites like fresh cheese curds are hard to come by, chicken booyah or a fish fry offer a taste of home. View the complete Green Bay schedule, and break out the Cheesehead hats! 

The NFL kicks off its 100th season with one of the oldest rivalries, Bears versus Packers, at Soldier Field. If you’ve moved away from the Windy City, don’t count on getting a classic Italian Beef sandwich. However, you can get a deep dish pizza shipped just about anywhere. Check out the Chicago Bears’ 2019-2020 season schedule.


When describing football fandom in Texas, the word “religion” is often involved. Whether you worship at the Palace in Dallas or NRG Stadium, feed the faithful with plenty of barbeque, margaritas, and a side of chili (Fritos optional). For dessert, you’ll want Blue Bell ice cream (if you can get it), and of course pecan pie. Here are the schedules for the Cowboys and Texans upcoming NFL seasons. 


Is your house a sea of red during football season? The loudest fans in football have a lot to be excited about for their 2019-2020 season. Fuel up for the season opener (September 9th) against the Jacksonville Jaguars with ribs, hot wings, and of course pie.
