The annual pre-season celebration of Detroit Tigers baseball has officially been moved to the warmer temperatures of summer.

TigerFest will be held during the summer of 2020, though an official date has yet to be announced.

“We’re very excited to bring new and fresh experiences to fans as we transition TigerFest from a winter to summer event,” said Ellen Zeringue, Detroit Tigers Vice President of Marketing. “By moving TigerFest to the summer, fans will have brand new experiences that include access to the field, more seasonable weather and interactive games and activities that we simply can’t provide in January.”

Additionally, the team released information on the annual Detroit Tigers Winter Caravan, which will take place from January 22 through 24.

“Our players and coaches absolutely love coming back to Detroit to see the fans during offseason events like these,” said Ron Gardenhire, Tigers manager. “It doesn’t get much better than Winter Caravan, reminding you of the passion that baseball fans have here in Detroit and throughout the state of Michigan. There’s no doubt that it’s one of the favorite things we do all year.”
