Mark your calendar: Packers Family Night at Lambeau Field set for Saturday, August 8th
GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers announced Wednesday, June 3rd that Packers Family Night, presented by Bellin Health, will take place Saturday evening, August 8th.
Now in its 15th year, Family Night will serve as the introduction of the 2015 Green Bay Packers, in-person to a capacity crowd in Lambeau Field and on television to a state-wide audience. If you’re not able to make it to the event, you can watch it LIVE on WITI-TV FOX6!
The event, which begins with in-stadium activities at 5:30 p.m., will benefit the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids foster care adoption program, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
The format of this year’s Family Night will once again be a full practice, in order for the team to accomplish its preparation goals for the regular season. The full practice will include 11-on-11 sessions that will feature live contact.
The evening remains family-focused and will feature a game-like atmosphere with use of the video boards, gameday music and a fireworks show at the end of the night.
“It’s the tailgating and, you know, all kind of events going on outside the stadium and then inside the stadium. It’s, you know, mostly football themed, but it’s really — we run it just like a regular game. We’ve got the video boards and the music and the game entertainment. The highlight of the evening is always the fireworks show. So even if your kids are young and they start getting a little tired, stay for the fireworks. It’s worth it,” Packers President Mark Murphy said.
Family Night is a part of the Back to Football campaign, presented by Bellin Health. Other components of the campaign include Packers training camp and Packers preseason games.

Included in the evening’s activities will be the popular Chili’s “Jerseys Off Our Backs” promotion with Packers jerseys – all of which will have been worn by Packers players in the just-completed practice – to be given away in a random drawing.
The Copps-Pick ’n Save Family Night Picnic also returns and the spectacular Copps-Pick ’n Save Fireworks Show will conclude the night.
