New Tailgate Village for 2017

The Green Bay Packers and Johnsonville Sausage on Wednesday announced plans for the Johnsonville Tailgate Village, the permanent tailgating and event structure set to be constructed in Lambeau Field’s east side parking lot in time for the 2017 football season.

Aimed at giving Packers fans a centrally located spot to gather and share in Packers gameday traditions, the Johnsonville Tailgate Village will be free and open to all fans on gameday. The space will build on the success of the Tundra Tailgate Zone, the current seasonal structure open to fans on gamedays, which has been in use during football season for nearly a decade.

The new, permanent Johnsonville Tailgate Village will be an extension of Lambeau Field, reflecting the stadium’s unique look and feel. On gamedays, more than 2,000 fans will be able to experience a high-energy atmosphere, featuring music and entertainment, large screen televisions, food and beverages and other activities for tailgaters. 

The versatile, 13,242 square-foot event area will offer guests a variety of amenities including a full kitchen for event catering, indoor restrooms, and heating, radiant floors and air conditioning to create a comfortable temperature in any season. For events, the dining and event space will comfortably seat more than 500 guests for a variety of functions.

In the warmer months, the flexible, festive space will open up to a 4,300 square-foot party deck, as well as the outdoor fan walkway and Lambeau Field parking lot, with large overhead doors, allowing fans to gather and enjoy activities in both areas seamlessly. With floor to ceiling glass walls facing Lambeau Field, fans inside and out will feel like part of the action.
