If you are like one of the many fans chomping at the bit to see inside the new Viking's stadium, you are in luck: the chance to see it is just around the corner.

The first opportunity for Minnesotans to explore U.S. Bank Stadium is on Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24 during a two-day open house.

“U.S. Bank Stadium’s Open House will be the first time the building is open to the public,” said Michele Kelm-Helgen, Chair of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority in a release. “To celebrate the grand opening, we will have a large range of family-friendly events with activities for all ages.”

Events on the plaza and park include:

  • Playground on the plaza
  • A unique, 3-D chalk art installation
  • Live music on both days including line dancing, DJ’s, children’s entertainment
  • Giant-sized Connect Four, Jenga and other games
  • Outdoor movies in the park on both days

A ticket is not necessary for outdoor activities during the open house. (Tickets are available here or by calling 800-745-3000)

Progress on construction

Despite a set date for public tours, there are still final touches that need to be made.

A pair of field goal posts were put in this week, the team announced.

Crews also finished installing the turf this week, KSTP reported, as well as Wi-Fi and about 2,000 HD televisions.
