Annual Packer Tailgate Tour to stop in Marshfield
For the Hub City Times
GREEN BAY — The 14th annual Green Bay Packers Tailgate Tour will make a stop in Marshfield on April 9.
The tour will travel throughout central, western and northern Wisconsin to visit with fans and thank them in person for their support, making stops in Marshfield, Sparta, New Richmond, Chippewa Falls, and Antigo. Each tailgate stop will support a local nonprofit organization.
Tour celebrities will include Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy and Packers alumni Nick Barnett, Earl Dotson, Ryan Grant, Bernardo Harris, Aaron Kampman and Scott Wells. Due to the earlier start to this year’s offseason program, current players will be unable to attend the tour.
Tickets for the tailgate parties at all locations will go on sale Feb. 22, at 8 a.m.
The tour will take place aboard a customized motor coach emblazoned with the “Green Bay Packers Tailgate Tour” logo and the phrase “Touching Down in Your Community.” In addition to the designated locations, tour celebrities will make surprise stops as the schedule allows.
The Marshfield will welcome the alumni arriving at 6 p.m., and festivities will run until 8:30 p.m. Marshfield’s PDC Orenda Center will host the party, which will feature food, giveaways, question-and-answer sessions and autographs. Tailgate party tickets or general admission tickets are available.
One hundred percent of the Tailgate Tour proceeds benefit PDC.
“The Packers are excited to embark on the 14th annual Tailgate Tour and visit with fans in central, western and northern Wisconsin,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “We’re proud to be supporting a variety of excellent nonprofit organizations during the tour and joining our fans in making a positive impact in their communities.”
