CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Fox Sports Ohio Redsfest, presented by PNC Bank, will be held Friday and Saturday at the Duke Energy Convention Center.

The official annual winter warm-up of the Cincinnati Reds, Redsfest features games and activities, including interaction with past, current, and future players. The event runs 3 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Friday, and 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Saturday.

Redsfest benefits the Reds Community Fund, a fund that has been dedicated to improving the lives of youth through baseball- and softball-themed outreach efforts since 2001.

People can get tickets at Great American Ball Park, at the Convention Center starting Friday at 9 a.m., or right here. Single-day passes for adults and children are $17 and $7, respectively. Tickets come with tickets to an April 24 game against Atlanta (more info here).

Children ages three and younger do not need a ticket if they're accompanied by a paying adult.

The first 11,000 fans in attendance each day will receive a free Redsfest giveaway, including a Redsfest drawstring bag and a Rosie Red ornament.

During the first weekend, fans can register to win a Toyota Tundra from the Cincinnati & Nothern Kentucky Toyota dealers. Eight people will win a pair of tickets to the Reds Opening Day game, with one of them winning the Tundra during an on-field presentation. 

Will every player be there?

  • All players are asked to attend Redsfest.

Are there different types of autograph sessions?
