The Cincinnati Reds hold their annual Redsfest December 1 and 2 this year at the Duke Energy Convention Center.

The annual event of the Cincinnati Reds supports the Reds Community Fund.  The fund provides educational and vocational support for various groups across Reds’ country.  It is a non-profit organization.

Tickets are already on sale for Redsfest.  For the cost of about one game fans can spend a day in Reds heaven.  They even get a free ticket to a game in April against the Atlanta Braves with a two-day pass.

As is usually the case, Redsfest is on a Friday evening and during the day on Saturday.  This is nice for families as young children, three and under, get in free.  That means there are times for the family and some times for mostly adults.

Another nice feature is the ability to re-enter with a stamp, if fans want to go out for a meal or need a break.  Season ticket holders also get a lanyard for their Redsfest ticket.  The team tries to make this a true event.

In a sign of the times, there is a drone policy for Redsfest.  No drones are allowed.  The Reds also follow MLB rules for bags.

Beyond the nuts and bolts, the Cincinnati Reds have the player access that makes Redsfest what it is.

More from Reds News

The Reds literally ask every player on the forty man roster to come to Redsfest.  Some can’t make it because they are out of the country and others can’t make it because of injury.  Still, an amazing number of players do make an appearance.

The Reds have maintained the same rules for autograph sessions as in the past.  The sessions are announced 30 minutes ahead of time and are limited to 225 people.  There are different ways to get the announcement, ranging from texts to Twitter.

The Reds also are bringing back the photo booths.  That is where fans can get their pictures taken with players.  Some are free and require that fans bring the cameras and some have printouts for a Reds Community Fund donation.

Of course, bingo and poker are both back.  They will also have fan club sign-ups and the indoor field again as well.  The team even sells game-used merchandise at Redsfest.
