Creating Home and Community in Public Spaces: Vestaval in Tailgating

Tailgating is a ritual act of eversion that turns the household inside out, putting its interior workings on public display. We describe tailgating as a vestaval which celebrates household values, dramatizing them in hermetic space, proclaiming the importance of a shared sense of domesticity to the life of a culture.
