The Cincinnati Reds informed season ticket holders earlier today that 2020 Redsfest was being cancelled. Here is what the email said:
Dear Season Ticket Members,
We are excited to have the 2020 season underway and are continuing to assess when fans can safely return to the ballpark. As you can imagine, the atmosphere on game days is drastically different without you cheering in person and we appreciate you following us on radio, television, and social media.
We have made the difficult decision to cancel Redsfest, scheduled for December 4-5, 2020. Planning and hosting Redsfest with the same bravado that our 15,000+ guests have come to expect is simply not possible given the current limits being recommended by public health officials for large mass gatherings.
Although we are very disappointed by this reality, we are pleased to announce that we have locked in Duke Energy Convention Center for Redsfest to return December 2-3, 2021.
We thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate through the unknowns of 2020 together. Your support has been incredible and we appreciate it very much.
Let’s cheer our Redlegs on to a strong finish!
