TwinsFest, the long-standing wintertime tradition that brings the ball players and fans together about a month before spring training makes all things new again, is scheduled for Jan. 23-25 at Target Field.

As the largest annual fundraiser for the Minnesota Twins Community Fund, TwinsFest features behind-the-scenes fan experiences with current and former Twins such as photo and autograph sessions, boardwalk-style amusements and a chance to see inside the clubhouse and other areas of the stadium.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Dec. 11 at 10 a.m., and the team expects the weekend to be a sellout. The cost is $20 for adults and $10 for kids 14 and under.

Back again this year is a Twins Yard Sale, with team-issued gear, autographed memorabilia, Twins branded artwork and promotional items available.

TwinsFest began in 1989 in the Metrodome, the team’s former home. It also has been held at the Mall of America and the National Sports Center in Blaine.

Over the past 25 years, TwinsFest has raised more than $4.2 million for programs and organizations supported by the Minnesota Twins Community Fund.
