    Ugh, I have family in New Glarus. Heard a bunch of great things about Fan Fest, we were looking into the possibility of making the trip. Probably still will, my girls have never been to Wisconsin, and I heard they have a mustard museum, so...

    They can do better.
    Look for them to cook up something better than ever.

    The mustard museum is in Middleton. It was different and need to go back for a good bbq mustard.

    I was planning on going to the Packers fanfest this year, last year they showed their throwbacks at Fanfest, and you know this year as SB champs it would of been great.

    So wait, are they canceling Fan Fest due to some crazy, awesome Super Bowl celebration bash they intend to throw, or are they just being cheap? lol

    Yep, we're going to try to take in as much as we can while we're there. My girls are very intrigued by a mustard museum, so that's high on the list. As our trip gets closer, I may look for other suggestions from the WI travel bureau here.

    Fanfest is usually held in the spring around april. They are not having it this year though. It was announced back in december. I'll bet whoever made that final decision is now kicking themselves for that.

    The 2 that I went to were held in March...The first one was fantastic, the second one was basically more
    money for mostly the same experience.

    I think they could be scheming for something that would blow the original fanfest out of the water!

    We've heard that Fan Fest is back on for 2012, and we're considering making the trip. What events does it usually contain?
