The Diocese of Green Bay is hosting daily interactive activities for the whole family, plus hot dogs each evening, at the Shady Acres camp area. Our presence will include daily Mass, Confessions, and Rosary. Visitors can make bracelets or necklaces symbolizing the Gospel message, get a temporary tattoo, religious literature and information, or a Diocese of Green Bay T-shirt Thursday to Saturday at an exhibit table in the main exhibit hall.

Bishop David Ricken invites you to join him for Mass Sunday July 15 at the Cafe Stage, plus on Saturday a Meet & Greet, a session of Lectio Divina and the opportunity play some Gaga Ball with him at the campsite. Complete Diocesan schedule below.

More than 150 acts on six stages | Music | Comedy | Speakers | KidZone | Food | Marketplace | Cybercafe | Camping | 5K Fun Run | Art Space | More | Come for food, fellowship, and fun!

"For 150 years, the Catholic Church has taken root in northeastern Wisconsin. Just think of all the disciples of the Lord Jesus who have been nourished by the Good News in this beautiful diocese! As Disciples on the Way, we have so much to be grateful for. Let us rejoice and celebrate these 150 years united in God's Church, in this wonderful place we all call home."
