NFL: 2016 NFL Draft Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Vikings do not currently have a pick on the first day of the draft, but they’re determined to make the final day of the draft exciting for fans.

The team has announced the Miller Lite DraftFest event to be held at U.S. Bank Stadium on Saturday, April 29.

From the team’s press release:

The tailgate-themed, day-three draft event, set to take place from 10:30 a.m.-6:00 p.m., will give fans the chance to meet current players and Vikings Legends while watching NFL Network’s draft coverage and a live KFAN broadcast with Vikings play-by-play man Paul Allen, former Viking Ben Leber and other KFAN personalities. Vikings picks from rounds four through six of the NFL Draft will be made live at the event and broadcast to NFL.com. Other festivities include appearances by Vikings cheerleaders, Viktor and the Skol Line, live music by Davina and the Vagabonds, a Coors Light Baggo Challenge for the first 32 teams to register (the winning team will receive two tickets in Mystic Lake’s Club Purple for a future Vikings home game) and a football skills fan zone. The interactive Vikings Voyage inside U.S. Bank Stadium will also be open.

Lots of current and former Vikings are also scheduled to appear throughout the day. Kentrell Brothers, Stefon Diggs, Isaac Fruechte, Everson Griffen, and David Morgan are the current players scheduled to attend. Vikings legends Chuck Foreman and Paul Krause are also planning on being at the U.S. Bank Stadium celebration.

Tickets are $20 for non-season ticket members and can be purchased via Ticketmaster here. If you happen to be a season ticket holder, you can purchase tickets for $15 here or receive a special price of $10 via mobile only by clicking here.
