The Official Site of the San Jose Sharks

Every September, the Sharks Foundation hosts its annual Tank Tailgate, a separate ticketed event taking place at the San Jose Sharks Fan Fest. With a Tank Tailgate ticket, guests 21 years of age or older have access inside the fenced beer garden space on N. Autumn Street which features a rotation of Sharks celebrity guest bartenders, live music, photo booth, raffles and food trucks. Tank Tailgate tickets also grant access inside SAP Center where other Fan Fest activities take place! All guests receive limited, complimentary tastings from over 20 beer brands and a Sharks beer-themed gift to commemorate the occasion. 

Net proceeds from Tank Tailgate benefit the Sharks Foundation and its mission to aid underserved youth and families in the community.
