The Cleveland Indians announced on Monday that its fan favorite event, Tribe Fest, will return for a seventh season of fun activities for people of all ages.
The seventh annual Tribe Fest, presented by Key Bank, will return for a second straight year to the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland for a one-day teaser of baseball in the freeze of winter on Saturday, January 12. The site will also be home of fan festivities during All-Star week next July.
The team plans to make this year’s event bigger and better than previous editions and will bring back numerous activities from years’ past, including player autograph sessions, opportunities for fans and kids to interact directly with the players and other speakers, batting cages, speed pitch, and honorary contracts from team executives. The team is also expected to give fans a glimpse of what events are planned during the All-Star activities later in the year.
Tribe Fest is tentatively scheduled to start with a four-hour season ticket holder exclusive event from 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM, with tickets going on sale one week from today on Monday, November 5. General admission tickets (benefiting the Cleveland Indians Charities) will cost season ticket holders just $5.
Following the STH event, the six-hour general public event will kick off at 1:30 PM and last until 7:30 PM. Tickets for the general public will cost $10 each and will go on sale next Wednesday, November 7.
For both sessions, admission tickets can be bundled with autograph session tickets to guarantee either player or alumni autographs during the day.
Names of players expected at this year’s Tribe Fest have not been announced, but the team plans to share those expected in attendance at a later date. The Indians did share on Twitter that “Future Hall of Famer Terry Francona” will be at the event, in comedic response to a pair of firings of the head coaches of the city’s two other professional sports franchises.
