With football returning to Lambeau Field for the regular season on Sunday, Sept. 10, fans are reminded of the upcoming “Kickoff Weekend” event, presented by Tundraland Home Improvements, Kohl’s and Courtyard by Marriott.

To welcome fans to Lambeau Field a day early to celebrate the new season, the event will be highlighted by a free concert outside Lambeau Field on Saturday, Sept. 9, featuring Blues Traveler, with special guest Everclear.

The festivities will begin with the new Johnsonville Tailgate Village opening for fans and concert-goers at 3 p.m., with live music beginning at 5 p.m. near the Oneida Nation Gate. The Tailgate Village will offer a variety of food and beverages for purchase, and will be open until 9 p.m.

Kickoff Weekend attendees can park for free on Saturday on the stadium’s west side off of Ridge Rd. The Lambeau Field Atrium will be open at 7:30 a.m., with Atrium businesses including the Packers Pro Shop, Lambeau Field Stadium Tours, the Packers Hall of Fame and 1919 Kitchen & Tap open for regular hours as listed on packers.com/lambeau-field/hours-of-operation.html.

The celebration will continue the next day, with Sunday’s Packers-Seahawks game. The Lambeau Field parking lots and Johnsonville Tailgate Village will be open at 11:25 a.m., and gates will open at 1:25 p.m. Fans attending the game will receive a “Kickoff Weekend” rally towel, compliments of Tundraland Home Improvements, Kohl’s and Courtyard by Marriott.
