MINNEAPOLIS — For the first time since 2020, TwinsFest will return as an in-person event, offering a revamped lineup for the two-day experience. Tickets will go on sale to the general public Dec. 8 at 10 a.m. for the three events to be held Jan. 27-28, with a presale for season ticket holders beforehand.

The first of the three events, TwinsFest Live!, will be held from 7-10 p.m. at The Fillmore Minneapolis on Friday night. The event, a new addition to TwinsFest, will feature a meet-and-greet with players and coaches, a live performance by a tribute band, games and more, the team said in a release.

The Twins did not hold TwinsFest in 2022, and the 2021 event was a virtual event because of the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to the return of TwinsFest, the Twins are also preparing to bring back the Winter Caravan. They expect to announce more details on that in the coming weeks.
