Cookie Kickoff 2017

2018 Cookie Kickoff Family Tailgate with the Jacksonville Jaguars

Get ready to kick off the 2018 season of the Girl Scout Cookie Program with your fellow Girl Scout sisters, family, and the Jacksonville Jaguars with an all new Cookie Kickoff Family Tailgate!

Join us at Metropolitan Park for a day of family fun, entertainment, a Girl Scout zone, food trucks, photo booth, games,  and much more, before heading over to TIAA Bank Field to watch the Jacksonville Jaguars take on the Washington Redskins. Visit the Cookie Zone to vote for your favorite cookie! Register for the upcoming Thin Mint Sprint 5K and Fun Run. Learn about community service activities coming up in our area. Make sure you stop by the Girl Scout Shop on the Road before you head over to the game so you can share your Girl Scout pride! The all-new Cookie Kickoff is sure to be a hit with the entire family, and this year you can bring your friends along to join in the fun!

This year will be one to remember, so grab your tickets, load up the family, friends, and your Girl Scout troop, and join us for a day of football, fun and cookies — what more could you ask for?
