"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.
