Later in the summer, timed to coincide with the beginning of training camp, fans are invited to Lambeau Field for the Packers Experience. A four-day, free festival for fans of all ages, the Packers Experience will feature fan activities including live music, a replica team locker room, USA Football kids’ clinics, Packers alumni question-and-answer sessions, photo stations and prizes through Packers Pass.
