The 50th Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Induction Banquet, originally scheduled to be held on Saturday, April 18, has been postponed as part of the collective effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Tom Konop, President of the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc., made the announcement Tuesday.
This decision was made based on guidance from government officials and the CDC, which has recommended to not hold gatherings of more than 50 people for the next eight weeks.
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. will announce a new date for the Banquet in the next few weeks and is grateful to all their supporters for their patience and understanding during this challenging time.
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. is a nonprofit corporation independent of the Green Bay Packers that guides the Hall as a historic national sports venue and educational resource to the Green Bay community and the state of Wisconsin. The Hall raises funds through its annual Induction Banquet, Golf Classic and other events to preserve the history of the Green Bay Packers and expand its archives. Historic memorabilia donated by individuals to the Hall may qualify as tax-deductible gifts.
Originally established in 1967 as a temporary display in the concourse of the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena, the Packers Hall of Fame moved into its own facility in 1976 near Lambeau Field. In 2003, it was relocated to the lower level of the Lambeau Field Atrium, and it was closed in November 2013 for renovations. The Packers Hall of Fame reopened in August of 2015, and is now located on the main floor of the Atrium across from 1919 Kitchen & Tap.
