The Wisconsin State Fair means many things to people of all ages. Some come to the fair for the farm animals, the food, the rides at the midway, or to just watch the people go by. Is it the giant baked potato, the corn on the cob, or the giant slide that brings you to State Fair Park? For many, it’s the music. You can sit on the Milwaukee Mile track every night and watch some great entertainment.
Who’s coming to the Wisconsin State Fair in 2022?
Opening Wisconsin State Fair in 2022 is comedian Jeff Dunham on August 6. On 8/7, the Happy Together Tour comes to the fair. That night, you might see The Buckinghams, The Turtles, The Grass Roots, or the Cowsills.
Kidz Bop Live! will headline August 9. Charlie Berens brings his music to the fair on 8/10/22. Vintage rockers Tesla will hit the stage on 8/11. Nelly, with Ginuwine heat things up on 8/12. Brett Young headlines 8/13. Closing out the Wisconsin State Fair is the classic country band Oak Ridge Boys.

It’s an annual tradition for Packers fans of all ages to attend Packers Family Night. In 2022, the scrimmage will be held on August 5th. There are very few NFL teams that could draw tens of thousands of fans just to watch their players hold a scrimmage. The Packers are just that kind of team.

The team will perform drills, run plays, throw passes and have fun with the crowd. It’s a special night for the kids, as they get the chance to see Lambeau Field, players, and fireworks, all on a summer evening.

Prohibited Items for Family Night
This list of prohibited items comes directly from the Green Bay organization:
Do you wonder what the Packers “Green” versus “Gold” package means? Is there some sort of way to find out which games are which? Ticket King has your answer. First, you don’t really need to know which games are “Green” or “Gold” we sell Green Bay tickets for every home and away game on the schedule. But there are some things to know about how the tickets are divided.
It helps to understand that at one time the Packers played two regular season games at County Stadium in Milwaukee Wisconsin. They also played a preseason game in Milwaukee each year. Believe it or not, there wasn’t such high demand for Packer tickets during the 1970’s. The franchise struggled to fill Lambeau Field. Their solution was to court the fans that lived in Milwaukee. After all, Milwaukee is over five times the size of Green Bay. So the organization split the season tickets. The “Green Package” covers seven games (one preseason, and six regular season games in total.) The “Gold Package” covers the three games that used to be played in Milwaukee (one preseason, and two regular season games.)
Milwaukee Fans Drive To Green Bay For Gold Games
When the Packers decided to move those games back up to Lambeau Field, that meant the Milwaukee season ticket holders would have to drive two hours north to see their team play. Milwaukee ticket holders get home game two and five, every season. For 2022, Milwaukee ticket holders will have Packers vs. Patriots and Green Bay vs. Tennessee Titans games. On those days, expect traffic to be heavy on interstate 43, leading to Green Bay from the Milwaukee area. All the other home games are “Green” package games. While traffic can be heavy going into and out of Green Bay on any game day, it tends to disburse outward into all directions on “Green” package days.
When do the Cubs play the Brewers in Milwaukee? For 2022, we have a July and August series coming up. Over the Fourth of July holiday, the Cubs come to American Family Field on July 4, 5 & 6. The game on July 4 will start at 3:10pm. On July 5, the game starts at 7:10pm. On July 6, first pitch is set for 1:10pm.
The Cubs vs. Brewers series late in the season is set for August 26-28. These three games fall on the weekend, and they are sure to be exciting. For 8/26, the game starts at 7:10pm. On Saturday August 27, it’s another night game, but it starts at 6:10pm. Finally the Sunday game on 8/28 will start at 1:10pm.
Every sports stadium or music venue has its own carry-in, or “bag policy” that must be followed. American Family Field in Milwaukee is no different. Whether it’s a Brewers game or a concert, there are rules you need to follow before you enter the venue.
For people looking to bring a small bag or purse, the maximum dimensions must be no larger than 9″ X 5″ X 2″. Clear bags are allowed and their size cannot be larger than 12″ X 6″ X 12″. Smaller clear bags like one gallon and zip lock style are allowed.
For people bringing diaper bags, there are allowances for size, but please check before entering the venue. Folks with ADA or medical concerns can also bring larger bags. It’s always best to follow what the event staff advises during the fan entry and screening process. Check with the venue before you depart.
Keep in mind that no backpacks, drawstring bags, tote bags, laptop bags, soft-sided coolers, purses, or gym bags are allowed at any time, no matter the size. American Family Field tickets for all Brewers games are available now. Enjoy the game, and follow the bag policy rules so you don’t miss a minute of the action on the field.
The Green Bay Packers will face the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Divisional round of the playoffs this Saturday night. Packers playoff tickets for that game are in high demand as both high profile teams have fans that travel. Earlier this season, the Packers defeated the 49ers with a last second field goal. These two teams have faced each other many times in playoff situations. Aaron Rodgers & Co. will need to be firing on all cylinders in order to win in Green Bay. Playoff tickets for the game are going fast, now the the opponent and game time has been announced.
The 49ers upset the Dallas Cowboys on the road last night, in a game that featured numerous penalties and a controversial situation involving the referees spotting the ball as time ran out. Dallas fans will no doubt find the fault completely on the shoulders of the officiating, while ignoring the fact that Dak Prescott handed the ball to his center after running a quarterback screen with just fifteen seconds to play. That play, and the mistake by Prescott, left no time on the clock for a spiked ball and hail Mary attempt. The 49ers took an early lead in that game and just held on. The Cowboys have the entire off-season to mull over what happened, but their focus should be on the fact that they were the most penalized team to make the playoffs this season.
Packers fans would have preferred to face those penalty heavy Cowboys. Will the cold January weather favor the Packers this coming Saturday night? It certainly can’t hurt a team like Green Bay that is used to playing cold weather games. Should the Packers win on Saturday night, the NFC Championship game will take place at Lambeau Field the next weekend.
The 2021 Green Bay Packers regular season started off with a fizzle. The team took on the New Orleans Saints, with Aaron Rodgers sitting out the entire preseason. That was a game where the script was flipped and Jameis Winston threw five touchdown passes. Green Bay managed just three points against a Saints defense that was unstoppable. Packers fans were stunned. Aaron Rodgers asked us all to once again calm down and wait for better results. Green Bay went on to win the next seven games. He was correct, as the team shot up to lead the NFC North and never looked back. Yesterday, the Packers edged out the Baltimore Ravens and clinched the NFC North title once again. They are on their way in the playoffs, hoping for the first seed in the NFC. That would mean home field advantage throughout the playoffs and a bye week to start. Those same Saints that hobbled the Packers in week number one, managed to hold Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers scoreless in a Sunday Night game, currently placing the Packers at the top of the NFC. Will that lead hold? Only the Browns, Vikings and Lions have a chance to topple the Pack before the playoffs begin. At the same time, key starters are looking to get back into the game just as the playoffs begin. It’s sure to be an exciting playoff run. Packers tickets for the playoffs are now on sale.
Rodgers Up For 2021 MVP
Aaron Rodgers is a leading candidate for Most Valuable Player, and if he keeps up his weekly performance he just might get that fourth nod from the powers that be. It’s doubtful that his goal is that title. It’s all about that Lombardi trophy at this time in his career. Could this be the team that brings that trophy back home to Green Bay? Many signs point to yes.
First, we have to consider the fact that the Packers offensive line is strung together with string and chewing gum right now. At kickoff last night, there was a third string player protecting Rodgers in the pocket. Billy Turner, David Bakhtiari, Josh Myers, were all out once again. When the last seconds ticked off with the Packers taking the victory formation for the last play, Rodgers had been sacked three times that afternoon. The line is holding up. The defense is a top ten force. The offense does give up points in the first quarter of just about every game, but it seems like it’s just a matter of making defensive adjustments. Green Bay outscores their opponents in the second and third quarters by a country mile.
With the playoffs a lock, it’s now down to where the team will land in the NFL bracket. The Buccaneers will surely right the ship after the shutout. The Dallas Cowboys might be the sleeper team that runs the table in the playoffs. The Cardinals were hot out of the gate, but have stumbled a bit in the past few weeks. It’s great to see the Packers in the playoffs once again.
The Milwaukee Brewers playoff record stands at 1-1 at the time of this post. The team lead their division for the bulk of the season, and they have high hopes for going deep in the playoffs. Will they make it all the way to the World Series? First things first. The team will have to take down the Atlanta Braves before moving on to the NLCS. Brewers playoff tickets for all home and away games are available on our Ticket King website.
In game one of the NLDS series, both teams struggled to find footing in the early innings. Fans a American Family Field cheered through 6 1/2 scoreless innings before Rowdy Tellez smacked a home run off of Braves starting pitcher Charlie Morton. Morton was mowing down Brewers batters in the leadup to the home run. He fanned nine, and walked just one batter.
The Braves had a spark of their own in the eighth, when Joc Pederson hit a home run with the bases empty. In the ninth, The Braves had men on the corners with two outs, but Josh Hader settled down just enough to get a game ending ground out to second base. In game two, the Braves scored a pair of runs in the third inning and never looked back. They added another run in the sixth, and shut out the Brewers to even the series. Game three and four will be at Atlanta.
The Milwaukee Bucks are two games up on the Miami heat in the 2021 NBA playoffs. In this “limited seating” playoff run, the team has made it very exciting for those fans that have tickets to the games at Fiserv Forum.
The team made it all but over in the first quarter of game two. The Bucks tied records for most points scored and three point shots in the first, and never let the Heat back into the game. This effort made up for their less than stellar effort in game one. The team heads to Miami for game three.
Brewers String Together Three Wins
The Milwaukee Brewers are coming back around to playing solid baseball. With their top-notch pitching staff, all the team needed were hot bats on offense. Prior to this three game win streak, those bats were cold. The team went 6-18 for the month of may, before winning the series against the Reds. Last night, the Padres were mowed down by great pitching, with the Brew Crew cutting the Padres win streak to just nine. The team his home for two more games, then they hit the road to take on the Nationals.
It’s been too long since most of us have attended a concert or sporting event in person. We’re not counting those “limited capacity” NFL games that came at the end of the 2020 season, even though they looked promising. We’re talking about those sold out, 75,000 people in the stands, elbow to elbow, “high fiving” strangers, cheering yourself hoarse, games. We miss them. We miss being part of a crowd that erupts after a last second touchdown. We miss that special encore song that your favorite musician surprises you with at the end of a show. We miss it all. Are we back yet? Just about.
One thing holds true. When we are allowed to get back to normal, it’s going to be great. It’s going to be loud. It’s going to be fun! We all want to be there to enjoy the spectacle of it all when things come back. We’re social people. It’s hardwired into our being, to get together and enjoy it all.
Ticket King was one of those companies that went from making dreams come true with great tickets to live events, to a company that spent a large part of 2020 refunding loyal customers and hoping we all make it to 2021 safely. Through it all, one thing holds true. When it’s safe, we want get together in person again to enjoy the thrill of music, sports, and theater.
NFL Plans on Full Stadiums in 2021
It sure looks like the NFL will have full stadiums across the land this fall. The numbers are looking better and better each week, and those test runs that the NFL took in 2020 showed that people can attend an event without risking the health of those around them. Lambeau Field on a crisp fall afternoon is the place to be in 2021.
MLB Continues to Limit Capacity this Spring
Depending on the city or state, MLB teams are looking at limited capacity attendance for a bit longer. The Brewers hope to fill American Family Field seats with all those Brew Crew fans, but the approach is (so far) to keep safe.
As the capacity restrictions are lifted, we’ll see more tickets become available for sporting events. Live music venues are already booking shows for fall of 2021. These are all good signs, and Ticket King is there for you when you need all the best tickets to live events in the country.
