Five tips for Green Bay Packers fans attending training camp this summer.

The wait is finally over. On Thursday, the Green Bay Packers‘ 2018 season will begin with the first official practice of the year.

Training camp is a fun time of the year. The pads are finally put back on and you get your first glimpse of the rookies and newcomers to the roster. In Green Bay, training camp is just a little more exciting. The entire town revolves around the Packers and the team does a great job at being hospitable. From the atrium, Packers Hall of Fame, and the new Packers News District, there is plenty to take in. And the best part, it’s all within walking distance.

This year there is a little extra excitement to the opening of training camp. The Packers are celebrating their 100th season of play and are pulling out all the stops to give the fans a unique experience.

The NFL experience is taking over most of the Lambeau Field parking lot. But this one is tweaked just a bit and renamed the Packers Experience. This is the same traveling exhibit you see at the Super Bowl and the NFL Draft, except for one difference, it’s all Packers themed.

There are interactive exhibits, alumni interviews and live music. The best part is that the four-day event is free. ESPN and NFL Network will be doing live shows from the Packers Experience, so this is a chance to catch a peek into what goes on behind the scenes. Former players and coaches with ties to the Packers will be the hosts and guests of the shows.

In addition to the Packers Experience, the Packers News District will be having live music and events with free games.

Even if you can’t attend the opening festivities, there is still plenty that goes on during training camp. Here are some helpful tips that can be used when attending.
