WEATHER FORCES CHANGES TO “ARCTIC TAILGATE” PLANS AT MILLER PARK; Camping Out for Tickets Prohibited Due to Plummeting Temperatures
With frigid overnight temperatures expected for Thursday and Friday, today we announced that nightly camping for Saturday’s “Arctic Tailgate” will not be permitted. The earliest that fans will be allowed to arrive for the event will be 5 am on Saturday morning.
The Arctic Tailgate event marks the beginning of individual ticket sales for 2015 Brewers home games. Participants were originally going to be allowed to arrive at noon Thursday, and historically fans have camped over Thursday and Friday nights on the Miller Park Plaza area for the opportunity to secure tickets.
“This event is a tradition for many of our fans, but conditions are going to be too dangerous to be in the elements for extended exposure,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We simply do not want to put anyone’s personal health at risk with the expected conditions.”
The revised plan calls for gates to the parking lots to open at 5 am on Saturday. The Box Office will open at 9 am for the beginning of individual game ticket sales.
The Klement’s Famous Racing SausagesTM, Bernie Brewer and Brewers alumni players will be on hand to greet fans all morning. The first 2,000 fans in line will receive a hot dog and soda, compliments of Klement’s, Pepsi and Sportservice, as well as an Arctic Tailgate t-shirt. In addition, Grebe’s Bakery will supply fans with doughnuts. FOX Sports Wisconsin and 620 WTMJ will both serve as media sponsors, and the FOX Sports Wisconsin Girls will be in attendance on Saturday.
Only a very limited number of tickets for Opening Day will be available at this event (note: the Miller Park Box Office will be the only place where fans will be able to purchase individual Opening Day tickets on February 28; no phone or online orders will be accepted). Each fan will be limited to a maximum of four tickets for Opening Day, based on availability.
In addition to the Miller Park Ticket Office, fans will be able to buy tickets and parking at Brewers.com or by phone at (414) 902-4000. The Miller Park Ticket Office will be open until 5 p.m. on Saturday, February 28. Normal Box Office hours are from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. Monday through Friday (beginning Monday, March 2), 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturdays and 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Sundays.

Everyone knows Memorial Day is the unofficial start to summer and since it’s nice and sunny out today, that gives us even more reason to start daydreaming about all the fun coming up in Wisconsin over the next few months: tailgating at Brewers games (#1!), cookouts, concerts, festivals, and of course, Summerfest!
Well, next Thursday, June 6, the Brewers take on the Philadelphia Phillies at 7:10pm and the first 10,000 fans 21 and older will receive a Summefest Fest Flag that includes a weekday admission ticket to Summerfest (a $9 value), which runs June 26-30/July 2-7, 2013.
I’m interested in seeing Phil Vassar, Blues Traveler, Barenaked Ladies on the side stages and I’m thinking about Luke Bryan and or/Tim McGraw for the headliners–what about you? For the complete Summerfest lineup, click here.
To purchase tickets for the June 6 game, please visit brewers.com.
Yes, it’s finally here–tomorrow, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves will make their way to Miller Park for The Corona Light Presents Kenny Chesney’s ‘No Shoes Nation’ Tour.
As a big country fan myself, I’ve been looking forward to this concert since we announced it last November.
And, just like you, I’m getting all geared up for tomorrow. I’m planning my tailgate with friends, shining up my cowboy boots and I’m blasting my “Good Stuff” playlist on repeat.
But what else do you need to know to have a fun and enjoyable experience? Read on for our A to Z guide.

Consistent with our game-day carry-in policy, fans may not bring any cans, glass containers or alcohol into Miller Park. Soda, water or juice must be in factory-sealed plastic bottles. Fans may bring food items into the stadium using appropriate containers, but only food purchased within Miller Park will be allowed into Suite areas.
Bags, purses, fanny packs or soft-sided coolers must be 16 by 16 by 8 inches or smaller and will be searched.
Hard-sided coolers are not allowed in the ballpark.
Anyone who has seats on the field/floor or in the Sand Bar will need to obtain a wristband to access their seating area. Stations will be set up on the Field Level concourse near sections 110, 118 and 126 to distribute the wristbands.
Gates to the ballpark will open at 4 pm. The concert is scheduled to start at 5 pm.
Parking lots will open at 1 pm. Parking is $25 in advance at the stadium box office or online. Parking is $30 day-of-show.
Guests may not exit and re-enter Miller Park using the same ticket. However, in case of emergency, exceptions many apply. Please ask staff for assistance.
The roof status is always a big question folks have when we host games or events here. Right now, however, that’s still TBD. While the weather looks nice for tomorrow, it’s not nice right now as the artists are getting ready for the show, and as we know in Wisconsin, things can change quickly anyway. But open or closed, one thing is for sure–Miller Park will be rockin’!
5/18/13 Noon Update: Just heard from Senior Director of Stadium Operations Bob Hallas that the roof is expected to be OPEN if there is no rain in the area!
The parking lots at Miller Park will open at 1 pm and, just like at Brewers games, tailgating is permitted. Keep in mind that gates to the ballpark will open at 4 pm and the concert is scheduled to start at 5 pm. More than 100 portable toilets will be available in the Miller Park parking lots.
If you missed out on getting your tickets earlier, you’re in luck! As a result of production adjustment, a limited amount of tickets have been released today to this previously sold-out show. Check brewers.com/Chesney for availability.

See you there!
I don’t get to really sit in the stands too often at Miller Park anymore. I occasionally visit family and friends in the stands at Miller Park during home games and it is always fun to see parts of the game from different seats in the park. Maybe you too have had that same experience of moving around and sitting in different locations throughout the park for different. If you have found a certain section you enjoy in particular, buying specific seat locations on Brewers.com has never been easier because now fans will be able to literally select their seats.
The Brewers launched a new feature on Brewers.com that will allow fans to select specific seat locations online. The interactive seat maps are now live on Brewers.com and are available for all remaining games at Miller Park including the next home game, Monday, April 29th vs. Pittsburgh.
The Brewers partnered with ticking provider, Tickets.com and Major League Baseball Advanced Media to enable the technology on Brewers.com. The user-friendly interface allows ticket purchasers the ability to narrow their search for tickets by using a map that shows specific single game ticket availability in their favorite seating sections—all the way down to specific rows and seats. The system also allows fans to find ticket availability by most desired ticket price points for specific games as well as finding special ticket offers.
The maps are available online at www.brewers.com/tickets now. This technology will be a convenience for fans as well as make the fan experience even better.
“Brewers Chance 2 Advance Ticket Plan presented by Potawatomi” Allows Fans to Upgrade Seats After a Brewers Win
It seems like the Brewers are always coming up with unique ticket ideas. Ideas like the “Brewers Win, You Win” ticket plan, the “Holiday Four Packs,” “Ten Packs” and many others are just some of the many different options that cater to the different needs of each fan.
The Milwaukee Brewers today announced a new ticket promotion called “Brewers Chance 2 Advance Ticket Plan Presented by Potawatomi.” This is something we have never done as it allows fans the chance to upgrade their seats to the next highest ticket category every time the Brewers win. That is right, as if it wasn’t a reward enough to see a Brewers win, each time the Brewers win, your seats will be upgraded to a better location.
“This new ticket plan gives our fans another reason to root for a Brewers victory,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “You can’t lose, and if the Brewers win, so do you.”
Only a limited number of plans will be available, and they go on sale tomorrow (details below).
Here’s how the Ticket Plan works: For just $99, you will receive a ticket in the Bernie’s Terrace section to nine Tuesday home games at Miler Park (game dates are listed below). Starting on Tuesday, April 30, you will sit in Bernie’s Terrace and cheer for the Brewers to beat the Pirates. If the Brewers win, you can upgrade to a Terrace Reserved seat for the May 7 game against the Texas Rangers by paying a $2 processing fee. You will remain in the Terrace Reserved seat until the Brewers win the next game in the plan (when you have the opportunity to advance to the next best seating area (see below). If the Brewers win the first eight games in the plan, you will have the opportunity to sit in the Field Diamond Box section for the final game. If the Brewers do not win a game in the plan, simply exchange your Bernie’s Terrace ticket at no cost for a seat in the same section where you last advanced — no backsliding.
