TwinsFest to be at Target Field for first time in 2014

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Twins announced Monday that they will host their annual TwinsFest at Target Field for the first time in 2014.

The three-day event, which allows fans to meet, get autographs and take pictures with current and former Twins players, will run Jan. 24-26 and will have new features special to Target Field. Ticket prices and additional details will be announced at a later date.

"We're excited to bring TwinsFest home to Target Field," Twins president Dave St. Peter said in a news release. "Hosting this at our ballpark gives us a chance to reinvent this great event, providing creative new experiences for our fans in a smaller, more intimate setting. And perhaps most importantly, the event again promises to raise significant proceeds for the Twins Community Fund and its many worthwhile programs."

TwinsFest, which was launched in 1989, has become an annual extravaganza for Minnesota fans. The Metrodome served as the event's home while the Mall of America and the National Sports Center have also previously hosted the event.
