Minneapolis, Minn- With the 2014 MLB All-Star at our very own Target Field game later next week, the excitement surrounding the mid-summer classic is beginning to reach full form.

The festivities kick off on Friday July 11 with the beginning of All-Star Fan Fest presented by T-Mobile. Fan Fest runs from Friday until the start of the actual game on Tuesday night, and is the one stop shop for fans of the MLB. With everything from a dash for cash, to clinics hosted by coaches and players, fan fest has everything any baseball fan could want. Tickets and Prices can be found at

On Saturday July 12th, TCF Bank Stadium will be rocking as Imagine Dragons take the stage at the All-Star Concert, presented by Budweiser. Atmosphere will also be appearing, which will make for a great show rain or shine.

Sunday July 13th, the baseball begins with the Futures game followed by the Celebrity Softball game and Legends Game. The Futures game is scheduled for 4:00 pm with the Legends Game and Celebrity Game immediately following.

The Gillette Home Run Derby highlights Monday’s events at Target Field, with the Derby starting at approximately 7:00 pm.
