Family Fest

Bears Meijer Family Fest is a perfect event for the entire family! Join the Bears at Soldier Field on Saturday, August 2 for a special opportunity to see the Chicago Bears practice at Soldier Field.

At Bears Family Fest, fans will visit the stadium and watch the Bears practice under the lights on our home field. Additional entertainment includes fun family-friendly games and outdoor activities, live music, giveaways and a firework show to follow practice!

Kids Autograph Session: Kids are invited to Staley's Corner during Family Fest to enjoy fun activities, games, music and to visit Staley Da Bear himself. The first 200 kids ages 4-12 to enter Staley's Corner will receive a wristband, which will allow access to a post-practice kid's only autograph session on the field!

Staley's Corner will open at 3:00 pm on the Southwest Lawn, located outside of Gate 5 at Soldier Field. Eligible kids must have a Family Fest ticket and can be accompanied on field by one (1) adult. Subject to weather, field and other conditions as determined by the Bears.
