Packers Family Night Tickets | It's More Than Just A Scrimmage

Packers Family Night Tickets
We Packers fans already know how loyal we are to the Green and Gold. Did you know that Packers Family Night tickets are in just as high demand as regular season game tickets? Every year, the team puts together a great event.  From the games in the parking lot, to the "Walkway tour" of memorabilia, this (soon to be) summer classic never disappoints.

It's happening on August 8th, 2015, at Lambeau Field in Green Bay. Make sure to get there early, as parking fills up fast. The team drills start at 6:30, and the scrimmage begins one hour later. Prior to that, kids and adults will have plenty to do and see.  It opens at 11am with activities for all ages. You might be one of the lucky ones to grab a "jersey off their back" as the team is giving away jerseys that will be worn during the scrimmage. Lastly, the stadium will light up with fireworks at the end of the night. What a great way to spend a day in Green Bay!

It's the return of the Avett Brothers! With the addition of this show, set for July 4, the Summerfest headline acts have all been booked.  Opening for the group will be Brandi Carlisle and Warren Haynes. It's been thirteen years since the band hit the road, in support of their first album. It was titled Country Was, and has since been re-released.  One year later, the group would go on to complete their second disk.

By 2007, people started to notice how talented the Avett Brothers were. That year, they were up for an "Americana Music Association" award for Group of the Year. They won that honor. They moved up to a larger record label, and joined forces with a very talented record producer, in time to make album number three.  It would be called "I and Love and You." That disk hit the top ten, and was nominated for a Grammy. In thirteen years, the band has released eight albums, and four EP's. Catch them at Summerfest 2015!
