This year's event will again feature three sessions:

Â·Saturday, January 24: 4PM-8PM
Â·Sunday, January 25: 10AM-3PM
Admission for adults is $10 in advance and tickets are available online only, starting at 10AM Tuesday, November 25, at Indians.com/TribeFest. Kids ages 12 and under again this year can attend the event for FREE when reserved with the purchase of an adult ticket. There is a limit of two free children's admissions per paying adult. Tickets for kids age 12 and under are $5 at the gate day of event.
A limited number -- due to a Monsters home game on Saturday night and a Cavs home game on Sunday afternoon -- of $3 parking spots will be available in the Gateway East Garage. Those parking passes can be purchased online while fans purchase their event and autograph tickets. Fans are encouraged to purchase their Gateway East parking passes early, as supplies are limited.
Like in 2014, autographs can be guaranteed by purchasing an autograph ticket bundled at the same time with the general admission ticket online at Indians.com/TribeFest. ALL FANS in attendance are required to purchase an autograph pass if they would like to be guaranteed a spot in the autograph session line.
Â·$20/ticket for Indians Major League roster player sessions
Â·$25/ticket for Indians Alumni player sessions
Each Tribe Fest event features multiple autograph sessions, for which 250 tickets will be sold. Autographs for specific players are not guaranteed, just a space in line. If autograph sessions are not sold out, fans will be allowed to wait in line for autographs, time permitting and on a first-come, first-serve basis.
In order to maximize the amount of fans able to experience each autograph session at Tribe Fest, the purchase of autograph tickets has been limited to four per autograph session per transaction. Additionally, only one autograph session ticket per person will be honored at each autograph station.
In addition to interacting with players, young fans can hit in the Progressive Field batting cages (waivers will be required), take tours of the home clubhouse, listen to Q&As with Tribe broadcasters and players, and more. Concessions will be available in the Club Lounge.
All player appearances are subject to change.
