Twins announce plans for revamped TwinsFest set for late January
3 events will be part of the team’s 1st in-person fan event in 3 years
MINNEAPOLIS — For the first time since 2020, TwinsFest will return as an in-person event, offering a revamped lineup for the two-day experience. Tickets will go on sale to the general public Dec. 8 at 10 a.m. for the three events to be held Jan. 27-28, with a presale for season ticket holders beforehand.
The first of the three events, TwinsFest Live!, will be held from 7-10 p.m. at The Fillmore Minneapolis on Friday night. The event, a new addition to TwinsFest, will feature a meet-and-greet with players and coaches, a live performance by a tribute band, games and more, the team said in a release.
Signature Saturday, which will be held 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Target Field, will feature autograph opportunities, live interviews, Q & A sessions for fans and memorabilia sales.
The final event, the Futures Clinic, will be held concurrently at Urban Ventures on Saturday. In the morning, fans 6-12 will have the opportunity to participate in drills with players and coaches during an hour-and-a-half session. In the afternoon, the Twins will host another clinic for kids ages 13-18.
“We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Twins Territory back to Minneapolis for our first in-person TwinsFest in three years, while introducing some fresh elements to bring our fans even closer to their favorite Twins players and personalities in new and exciting ways,” Twins President and CEO Dave St. Peter said in a release. “We cannot wait to rekindle one of our region’s greatest and most beloved winter traditions, and to celebrate Twins Baseball with our fans.”
The Twins did not hold TwinsFest in 2022, and the 2021 event was a virtual event because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to the return of TwinsFest, the Twins are also preparing to bring back the Winter Caravan. They expect to announce more details on that in the coming weeks.
