Event description

Description

October 27-29 marks UW Green Bay's

19th Annual Family Weekend!

On behalf of the entire university community, we welcome you to campus. We hope you have a great visit. If you have any questions, please contact John Landrum at 920-465-2532.

A wide array of interesting things to do have been arranged, and most of them are at no cost for our families. A complete schedule is below.

Tickets

NOTE: AS OF Monday OCTOBER 16, MANY OF OUR TICKETS ARE "SOLD OUT".

There are still tickets available for Cheap Seats, The Packers Hall of Fame Tour (only), and the Pancake & Porky Breakfast. More Family Weekend T-Shirts will be available for sale at the Book Store.


There will still be many things to do on campus and around town, so please check the schedule.

There is no need to "register" for events that do not require tickets.



Most events are ticketed, even the “free” ones, and most require advance payment. We do that so we can make sure we have enough seats at the events.

Some events, like the Haunted Trail and UWGB Athletics may require ticket purchase at the door. Tickets for the Lambeau Field and Packers Hall of Fame Tours events are non-refundable, because we purchase the tickets on your behalf from the Packers.

Our UWGB students can get one free ticket at UWGB Athletics events. For other events, you should plan on getting tickets for them.
