While continuing the popular player autographs, photo sessions, sports memorabilia and collector's show, TwinsFest at Target Field will return many feature elements from the inaugural event in 2014 including increased player involvement, boardwalk-style amusements, special panel discussions, self-guided clubhouse tours and a walking tour of the ballpark. The Twins Amusements area will once again allow fans to interact with their favorite current and former Twins players in a variety of competitive activities and boardwalk-style games. Additional interactive activities include taking cuts in the Twins batting cages, BINGO, reading with Twins Mascot T.C. and Fan Feud. New to this year's event, fans of all ages can compete against their favorite Twins' base runners and try to steal second base (including mat for sliding into second), along with testing their velocity in the speed pitch cage.

In addition, TwinsFest attendees will have 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.

TwinsFest will once again feature the Twins Yard Sale, giving fans the opportunity to purchase unique team-issued gear, autographed memorabilia, Twins branded artwork and promotional items from the organization's first 54 years in Minnesota.

TwinsFest, one of the largest team-run fan festivals in professional sports, is the largest annual fundraiser for the Minnesota Twins Community Fund. Over the past 25 years TwinsFest has raised more than $4.2 million for programs and organizations supported by the Twins Community Fund.
