As previously announced, this year's edition features one major change: a switch to two days from the previous three-day affair. The same amount of Packers fun - autograph sessions, main-stage presentations, children's activities, etc. - has been efficiently scheduled over the course of two days rather than three. The new format, developed from attendee feedback and internal review, allows greater flexibility for local fans planning the weekend and for out-of-town guests making travel arrangements.
Thus, the schedule for Fan Fest on March 9 will be from 3 to 10 p.m., with a kickoff event at 4 p.m. On March 10, Fan Fest will run from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Tickets include, in addition to entrance to the two-day event, admission to the Packers Hall of Fame and a tour through the Packers locker room. Children 3-and-under enter free and do not require a ticket. Parking for the event is free.
Fan Fest partners include Goodwill Industries. A portion of Fan Fest proceeds will go to charity through the Green Bay Packers Foundation.
