On Canada Day, Sunday July 1st, the Blue Jays will celebrate this great country and honour the service of the brave men and women of the Canadian Forces.

Last season, families enjoyed great value with kids priced tickets for ages 14 and under. The Blue Jays are proud to continue this promotion for 2012.

This summer there is even more reason for fans to come to games early as the Blue Jays host four Summer Friday Fan Festivals (July 13th & 27th and August 17th & 31st).  Fans are encouraged to join the Blue Jays and bring their friends to the games to enjoy pre-game food, refreshments and entertainment outside Rogers Centre. More details of this exciting new program will be announced soon.

Every Tuesday is Tweeting Tuesday when fans get together to enjoy a Blue Jays game and connect with @bluejays and fellow fans at Rogers Centre.  

For an increased number of games the Blue Jays will offer the Lesters Hot Dog Grand Slam Combo which combines your ticket, food, and beverage in one price.  This will be offered across eight games this season.
