Everything you need to know for Packers Kickoff Weekend

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Green Bay Packers fans from across the country have started making their way to Titletown for the Packers season and home opener Sunday.

This year, the Packers have planned a special Kickoff Weekend for fans with a free concert featuring Blues Traveler and Everclear Saturday night. But there's plenty more for fans to enjoy throughout the weekend.


The excitement begins Friday with the Green and Gold Friday initiative. Fans wearing Packers apparel on Fridays during the season can visit participating CITGOs to get a free small coffee, no purchase necessary. To redeem the coffee, fans can download the Club CITGO app and check in while at a CITGO station.

Fans can also get vouchers at Culver's restaurants statewide for chances to win Packers tickets and Culver's food.

Anyone wearing green and gold can share their Packers pride on social media with the hashtag #GGFriday. Some photos will be featured on Packers.com, PackersEverywhere.com and Packers social media. You might even see yourself on the TundraVision video boards during the game!


On Saturday, the atrium will open at 7:30 a.m. for fans wanting to take tours of Lambeau Field. Tours begin at 8 a.m.

Those include three special Packers Alumni Tours: one featuring Willie Buchanon at noon, one with John Brockington at 12:15 p.m. and one with Paul Coffman at 12:30 p.m.

At 3 p.m., the Johnsonville Tailgate Village will open and food and drinks will be available.

The free concert begins at 5 p.m. with Blues Traveler and special guest Everclear. Fans are welcome to bring blankets and chairs to watch.

Concert-goers can park for free on the stadium's west side off Ridge Road. Parking is first-come, first-served. 


It's gameday! Sunday's season and home opener will feature the 31st Annual Packers Women's Association Food Drive. All donations go to Paul's Pantry.

The Food Drive takes place before the game, starting at 1:25 p.m. You can donate non-perishables and cash in the stadium parking lot and at the gates.

Packers alumni Willie Buchanon and John Brockington will participate in fan activities at the Johnsonville Tailgate Village and Legends Club, respectively, before kickoff. 

Fans are reminded to be cautious when purchasing tickets from secondary sources. Also, no bags or purses are allowed inside Lambeau Field unless they are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and are no bigger than 12" by 6" by 12".

The Lambeau Field Atrium, 1919 Kitchen & Tap and Packers Pro Shop will be open to ticketed guests only starting at 11:25 a.m. Stadium gates open at 1:25 p.m.
