YORKVILLE —The Green Bay Packers are planning to bring the traveling Lambeau Field Live exhibit to the Racine County Fair, with former players Santana Dotson and Nick Collins scheduled to attend, the team announced Wednesday.

This summer marks the second tour for Lambeau Field Live, which began last year to kick off the festivities for the Packers’ 100th season and is returning to celebrate the franchise’s 100th birthday on Aug. 11. The free exhibit is scheduled to be at the Racine County Fair July 24-28.

Lambeau Field Live includes interactive elements for all ages, meet-and-greets with former players and Packers traveling Pro Shop and Hall of Fame, according to a press release. Activities include virtual reality, a Lambeau Leap wall and an instant-win game.

“We’re excited to be bringing Lambeau Field Live on the road for a second summer,” Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy stated. “We enjoyed bringing the Lambeau Field experience all over Wisconsin last year, and we’re looking forward to wrapping up our 100 Seasons celebration by sharing this exhibit with our fans throughout the state once again.”

The first day at each location includes a Packers history presentation and a performance from the Tundra Line. Visitors can also enter to win prizes such as Packers gear and tickets by registering for the “Packers Pass” at packers.com/passregister or through the Packers mobile app.

The exhibit’s full schedule:

  • June 26-30 and July 2-7 at Summerfest in Milwaukee featuring former players Ezra Johnson June 26-28, Aaron Kampman June 29-30, Ryan Longwell July 2-4 and Bubba Franks July 5-7;
