Horn-Ball.com is the official website of the Horn-Ball Texas Tailgaters, a group of devoted Longhorn fans and friends from all over Texas who come out each and every week to support their Horns and have a blast.  At our Tailgate, we offer fully shaded, cooled and lighted seating & standing areas with Hi-Def satellite televisions, multiple activities and giveaways. 


We occupied the corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd and North Congress Ave., directly across from the Bob Bullock Texas History Museum and UT for 15 years.  In 2017, we moved to our current location.  We were a well known, charter member of the Lot 7 tailgating group, and are well known within the tailgating community.  We have been featured in the Daily Texan student newspaper, multiple local newscasts, national tailgating shows and on sports talk radio in the Austin market.   




It all began in 1998 when three UT students captured their love of Longhorn football by celebrating with friends in an organized tailgate party. Three years later they cultivated this tailgate into Horn-Ball, the beginnings of the ultimate tailgate experience. For nine years, Horn-Ball's original three members combined their efforts with two other tailgating groups, the Texas Pig and Texas Ringers to create the Ultimate Tailgating Experience.

With the Texas Pig and Texas Ringers moving on, Horn-Ball expanded their territory and established itself as the number one spot for tailgating in Austin. 
The tailgate has fostered life-long friendships and an unprecedented desire to make the best tailgating experience offered anywhere! We strive to have the best advertising/promotion options for businesses and the ability to put together turn-key tailgates for corporations and groups.
