SUNDAY: 7/16 Opening Day!
|1pm||EKKO Tent||Kickoff Party!||Our first official EKKO party to kickoff GNR! It is open house style, so swing by anytime in the afternoon, you don’t have to be there right at 1. We’ll have some drinks/treats, too!|

Let’s meet in the EKKO tent around 6:50, and walk to the amphitheater and sit together.
|Opening ceremonies officially kick off GNR with a welcome message from Winnebago, flag raising, and introductions made. It’s a special part of GNR’s tradition, so please join us as we take time to properly honor this event!|
