The tour is a five-day, five-city bus trip that brings players to communities around the state to thank their fans.
Beloit Regional Hospice was selected to partner with the Packers for this event and will receive 100 percent of the proceeds.
Local sponsors also include Beloit Health System and CSI Media, publisher of the Stateline News.
Packer President Mark Murphy is expected to address the fans during a question and answer session, and current players on the tour roster include Randall Cobb, Jarrett Bush and Alex Green. Player appearances are tentative as of the announcement date, and may change prior to the tour date.
Former Packer greats Santana Dotson, Aaron Taylor and Frank Winters also are expected to attend.
The event will include games, auction items, Packer memorabilia and Tailgate tour T-shirts.
A $30 ticket, limited to the first 650 purchasers is required for admission, autographs from the Packer celebrities, tailgate food, beverage and giveaways.
There also will be 300 general admission tickets available for $5, that do not include autographs, but include admission to the event as well as the question and answer session.
Fans under 18 must be accompanied by a ticket-holding adult.
