Be a champ for a day

Take a picture with the World Series trophy, or create your own trading card.

Free stuff!

On Friday, buy one admission ticket and get another one free.

Daily giveaways include mini-TC Bear bobbleheads to the first 1,000 children under 12 on Friday, “Kids Day” and Twins bobbleheads to the first 1,000 fans Monday (Oliva) and Tuesday (Mauer).

NOT-free stuff

A live auction will be held for numerous historic artifacts of the game, including Lou Gehrig’s autographed mitt, circa 1935; Jackie Robinson’s bat, circa 1953; Harmon Killebrew’s 1988 “Babe Ruth Crown” for career achievement; and jerseys of Killebrew, Kirby Puckett, Carew, Oliva and Blyleven.

The official All-Star store is packed with gifts and attire that fans can only obtain at this event or with an All-Star ticket to Target Field.

Simulate the real deal

Wonder what the clubhouse and dugout will look like at Target Field on game day? FanFest will show you in spaces designed to mimic the actual thing, complete with each player’s jersey hanging in the locker room.

Eat a hot dog (or something different)

FanFest promises a host of ballpark fare meant to reflect the many unique options served across the country.

Perfect your pose

Each day FanFest will feature a different theme. Saturday is “Family Wellness Day,” during which groups will be encouraged to practice yoga on the Fan Fest Diamond

Find Bigfoot

Firestone’s mega monster truck will be on site, decked out in All-Star fashion.
