CLEVELAND, Ohio — Tribe Fest, the Cleveland Indians’ massive annual winter fan festival, has been put on ice for 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But the club hopes to bring the event back the following year if conditions improve.
“Our organization deeply misses the Tribe community and is hopeful to see fans back at Progressive Field next season in 2021 and bring back Tribe Fest in January 2022.”

The majority of players from the Indians 40-man roster typically attended the event to provide autographs and interact with fans in a variety of ways, including on-stage interviews, games and demonstrations with youngsters on an indoor baseball field.
Since 2012, proceeds from Tribe Fest have benefitted Cleveland Indians Charities.
