A limited number of general admission tickets remain available for the Green Bay Packers Tailgate Tour visit in Platteville on Thursday, April 11, which will raise funds for Platteville Dairy Days.

The fundraising event will be hosted at the Broske Center from 5 until 8 p.m. and will feature a Mac & Cheese Cook-Off. General admission tickets are $25 each and are available at

In addition to the mac & cheese competition, there will be a full evening of activities. Fans can enjoy the Tailgater food stand featuring Dairy Days signature mac & cheese, beer stand, raffles and music from Beats By Byrnes. Following the Mac & Cheese competition, the Packers will make their way to the main stage for a short Q&A session followed by a time of casual interactions with the general admission attendees. Raffles, food and beverages require additional purchases.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will benefit Platteville Dairy Days Inc. which hosts the annual Platteville Dairy Days Celebration held each September. The annual event, which began 77 years ago, is a community wide three-day celebration that includes truck and tractor pulls, a parade down Main Street, livestock shows, youth exhibits, vendor fair and carnival rides with plenty of fair food.

As a reminder to fans, this year's fan-favorite Tailgate Tour will return in the same "road trip" format as last year, stopping at a variety of locations and appearing at nonprofit fundraising events each day. To allow for further opportunities for players and alumni to interact with more fans while raising money for the nonprofits, fans should note that there will once again be no formal autograph sessions.

The annual 'Packers Tailgate Tour,' set for April 9-13, will travel from Green Bay to Southern Wisconsin to visit with fans and thank them in person for their support, stopping in Kenosha on April 9, Beloit on April 10, Platteville on April 11 and Sun Prairie on April 12 before returning to Green Bay on April 13, with a variety of surprise and planned visits to be held in each area.

The event will feature current and alumni Packers players, with current players Elgton Jenkins, Kenny Clark and Rasheed Walker and alumni players Bryan Bulaga, Mike Daniels and Alex Green scheduled to board the bus, along with Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy.
