Bear Garden



One of the most beautiful campuses in America, a fall Saturday afternoon, savory smells coming from grills in every parking area, upbeat sounds from a stage featuring professional musical artists and a talented Mercer Bears’ football team. Tangible ingredients for one of the best tailgating experiences in the land. Whether it’s your first time to tailgate in Macon in the shadows of Five Star Stadium – or you are a regular for every home game at the Moye Football and Lacrosse Complex – the 2023 Mercer football season promises to be the best yet.
