UW-Green Bay hosts its third annual Alumni Days on Oct. 16 and 17 with a bigger and better array of activities to coincide with the University’s 50th Anniversary celebration. Among the events on Friday’s opening evening is a resurrection of the BlueWhale Coffeehouse — at one time a premiere Midwest destination for blues performers — with a Shorewood Clubhouse concert by alumni favorite Claudia Schmidt. On Saturday, Phoenix Fest — a “mini-Bayfest” — will offer live music, food, beverages, and many attractions for the entire family including Segway tours of campus, carnival games, zip line, stunt jump, a chili bar, corn tent and beer garden. Green Bay Athletics teams will host Phoenix Phrenzy in a “midnight mania” type of atmosphere with player intros, dunk contest, a scrimmage and special appearance by the Chicago Boyz Acrobatic Team (featured on “America’s Got Talent”). Throw in Alumni Awards Night, a mainstage Theatre production, a Music concert with alumni choral participation, home soccer and volleyball, the return of the John Maino Golf Classic at Shorewood, Big Mouth, Pat McCurdy, vintage memorabilia displays and a 5K fun run, and it’s an action-packed weekend.
