It’s never too early to look to 2019 right?  The Cleveland Indians are doing just that by announcing the date of their annual Tribe Fest for the 2019 season.

It feels like it comes all too fast, but it’s once again time to make your preparations for Tribe Fest. The Cleveland Indians announced the dates and location for Tribe Fest 2019. It will be held once again at the Cleveland Convention Center on January 20th.

The Indians have said it will be the “Biggest Tribe Fest ever” which makes sense as the team will host the 2019 All-Star game. It’s sure to have some previews for the mid-summer classic. There are sessions for Season Ticket members and for general admission with prices at $5 and $10 respectably.

As someone who now resides in Central Florida, I must admit I’ve never made it to a Tribe Fest, but from what I understand they’re always a good time. It’s cool seeing pictures of everyone’s favorite drummer, John Adams as well as player interactions every year.

Tribe Fest is usually seen as a good chance to meet players and introduce new players. Yonder Alonso made quite the introduction at the event last year. It’s also a chance for players to do on stage interviews.

There’s even a chance that players or teams will break news at these events. With the way this years’ free agency is set to turn out, it could be a very interesting Tribe Fest. You can even purchase tickets to guarantee a spot in autograph sessions.

The event usually features interactive baseball diamonds for kids (which players sometimes make an appearance at) as well as batting cages, pitching cages, and other games. If I was still a kid and my parents took me to this thing, I’d be psyched!

Next. Indians players who outplayed expectations. dark

It’s the first chance for us to get a look at how the Indians will approach things with the All-Star game coming in 2019. It’ll also be interesting to see if Chief Wahoo will be featured at the event. He won’t be officially used by the team anymore, this may be our first look at the “post-wahoo” Indians.
