Event description

Description

October 19-21 marks UW Green Bay's

20th 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

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. The Hay Wagon rides, Comedy City and Bingo events "sell out" quickly every year! Ticket sales will continue until October 4, or tickets are sold out. For events that require a ticket (even "free events"), remember to get one for your UWGB student if they are going to attend.

Some events, like the UWGB Women's Volleyball game 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.

Ticket Pick Up

Check-in and ticket pick up is at the University Ticketing & Information Center (UTIC) in the University Union. The UTIC will be ready for ticket pick up on Friday from 3 pm to 10 pm, and on Saturday from 9 am to 10 pm.

Hotel
