Minnesota Twins fans, Twinsfest is back! The 2019 event will be held at Target Field on January 25, 26, and 27. Tickets are $20 for adults, and $10 for children aged 12 or younger. Full information can be found on the Minnesota Twins website.
A wide range of players from the past, present, and future are scheduled to attend. The list currently includes all time Twins greats such as Rod Carew, Bert Blyleven, Tony Oliva, Joe Mauer, and Justin Morneau, current coaches and players Byron Buxton, Max Kepler, Jake Cave, and Rocco Baldelli, and future Twins including Royce Lewis, Alex Kirilloff, and many more.
Players will be available for autographs, photo opportunities, Q&A sessions, and other interactive fan experiences on a schedule announced in the weeks leading up to the event. Players and coaches to appear are subject to change. Keep an eye on the Twinsfest information page on the Minnesota Twins website for a schedule to be announced closer to the event.
A highlight of Twinsfest is the ability to explore areas of Target Field you likely would never otherwise see. The Twins clubhouse is open to walk through and see where the players prepare for games. In the past few years, the team has also allowed Twinsfest attendees to take cuts in the Minnesota Twins batting cage. You can also check out the exclusive Champions Club lounge directly behind home plate and suite levels of Target Field.
Another fun aspect of the event is the yard sale, where the Minnesota Twins sell game-worn memorabilia, apparel, previous stadium giveaway items, and many more. You’ll want to get there early if you hope to find something good, as many of the best items sell quickly in the morning. If you miss out, though, you can head downstairs and explore inventory of the numerous memorabilia dealers that will attend the event.
To top it all off, proceeds from the event benefit the Twins Community Fund, making the event all the more enjoyable. If you want to get in on the fund, head over to the Twins website to buy your tickets. See you there!
