Packers gear up for Fan Fest

A tour of the Green Bay Packers' football facilities, widely regarded among the finest in the NFL, will be featured at Packers Fan Fest, set for March 11-13, in the Lambeau Field Atrium.<p>

The first annual Fan Fest is a three-day celebration of Packers football for the whole family that will allow fans the chance to get up close and personal with their favorite Packers players, past and present, as well as coaching staff and front office personnel.

Packers Hall of Famer Ron Wolf and Pro Bowl wide receiver Javon Walker will be in attendance. Wolf and Walker join Bart Starr and Brett Favre among the approximately 25 past and present Packers that will appear during the event.

Those in attendance on the final day of the event will be allowed to walk through the Packers locker room, which does not appear on the regular Lambeau Field Stadium Tour. Among the activities to take place in the Atrium are question-and-answer sessions, followed by autograph and photo opportunities with current and former Packers. Due to time constraints and anticipated demand, autograph and photo sessions with certain players will be conducted via random drawing.

In addition to numerous football-related activities, Packers Fan Fest also will feature a special children's area and family fun.

Tickets, priced at $55 and good for all three days of the event, will go on sale Feb. 9, in person through the Packers ticket office, and via telephone. The ticket includes admission to the Packers Hall of Fame during the event. Children 3-and-under are free.

A portion of the proceeds will go to charity through the Green Bay Packers Foundation.

Further details, including more player appearances and additional event highlights, will be announced in the coming weeks.
