July 9, 2018

Vanderbilt Athletics' annual Fan Day activity, Dore Jam, is scheduled Saturday, August 4 on campus, offering fans an opportunity to meet their Commodore favorite student-athletes, get autographs, listen to live music and participate in an array of family-oriented activities.

The 17th annual Dore Jam, which attracts thousands of Commodore fans, will be held from 4-6 p.m. It will be staged for the sixth straight year in the Vanderbilt Multipurpose Facility, located between 25th Avenue South and Natchez Trace.

Head coach Derek Mason and the Vanderbilt football team will be on hand to greet fans and sign 2018 schedule posters that will be distributed free at the entrance, which will be located off Children's Way for the second straight year.

The Vanderbilt women's soccer team and head coach Darren Ambrose, coming off a NCAA appearance last year, also will be on hand to sign schedule posters.

"Dore Jam is always a great time for the entire family," Senior Associate Athletics Director Martin Salamone said. "We look forward to welcoming another big crowd of fans looking for autographs, plenty of activities and good music."

Official mascot Mr. C, Commodore spirit leaders, face painters and balloon artists will be on hand to entertain young fans. Other activities for young fans include inflatables, obstacle courses, soccer skee balls and a kicking station.

A Vanderbilt-themed photo booth will be available to fans attending the event.

Staff from Barnes & Noble at Vanderbilt will be on-site with the latest Vanderbilt Athletics gear and merchandise.


Fans can purchase season tickets to Vanderbilt's seven-game home schedule at the event. Packages start at $178 for the team's home slate.
