TwinsFest tickets ($20) for Target Field go on sale Wednesday morning

Posted by: Michael Rand under Target Field, Twins fans Updated: December 10, 2013 - 3:44 PM

TwinsFest, that annual Winter event, has a new twist this year as it will be at Target Field for the first time. That's a great thing in terms of the niceness of the facility, since the Metrodome always felt like a cave. That said, the charm of the Dome was that admission seemed to be almost limitless and inexpensive -- advance tickets last season were $9 for adults and $5 for kids 14 and under.

This year? Well, tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Wednesday, and if you missed earlier announcements there might be a little shock in terms of prices and availability.

Per the Twins:

The Minnesota Twins and the Twins Community Fund today announced additional details for "TwinsFest at Target Field," a new twist on a longstanding Minnesota baseball tradition. "TwinsFest at Target Field" will run from Jan. 24 through Jan. 26, 2014 and will provide a much more exclusive and intimate experience for fans in comparison to the event's storied Metrodome history.

The fundraising event will feature numerous new interactive activities and behind-the-scenes fan experiences that celebrate Twins baseball and Target Field. Based on the event's move to Target Field, TwinsFest '14 tickets will be much more limited than in previous years and will go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, Dec. 11 at 10 a.m. Ticket sales will be capped for each day and a sell-out is expected. Tickets will cost $20 for adults and $10 for kids 14 and younger.

The Twins are promising new activities and a "chance to reinvent" the tradition of the event, according to Twins President Dave St. Peter. Among the new twists: The option to purchase a "white glove" tour of the Twins Archive Room, the chance to take batting practice in the Twins batting cages and an opportunity to enjoy the signature food and beverage options which have made Target Field baseball's best dining experience.

Also: No live National Anthem auditions.
