March 30th--The 2011 NatsFest Date

Our Washington Nationals announced late this afternoon that the 2011 NatsFest for all fans will take place on Wednesday, March 30th just prior to the beginning of the regular season schedule. There will be no Winter FanFest and, since there was no mention of a Hot Stove Luncheon--that event is apparently out for this year too. That also means the special Season Ticket Holder exclusive get together with players held during late March each of the past two years at Nationals Park is out as well.

Here is the complete press release from the team:

NATIONALS LAUNCH 2011 SEASON WITH EXCITING NEW NATSFEST

This year’s celebration will offer greater access to Nationals players and coaches

For the first time ever, the Washington Nationals will host the annual NatsFest at the start of the 2011 season on Wednesday, March 30 so that more fans than ever before can celebrate the beginning of baseball alongside Nationals players, coaches and team personnel at Nationals Park. This unprecedented move will offer fans access to a fun-filled festival featuring a variety of activities that include the team’s 2011 roster.

“The feedback we received from our fans this offseason convinced us to do something new, exciting and unique,” Nationals Chief Operating Officer Andrew C. Feffer said. “Unlike previous years, the 2011 NatsFest will be more inclusive for all our fans and offer them opportunities to interact with their favorite Nationals. Through this event, we hope to engage our fans like never before and get them excited for what is sure to be an electrifying baseball season.”

The Third Annual NatsFest will be open to fans of all ages and includes opportunities to watch the Nationals practice, enjoy a meet-and-greet with players and coaches, and much more. A full schedule of events will be available in the coming weeks.

The cost of the event is $10 for adults and $5 for children under the age of 12. Season ticket holders will receive complimentary event tickets in their season ticket package. Parking will be available in Nationals Park Garages B and C, located on N Street SE between South Capitol Street and First Street.
