After weeks and months of “Stay Tuned!” responses from the Brewers official social media accounts, today they finally confirmed the date of the 2013 Arctic Tailgate. I say “confirmed” as opposed to “revealed” because common sense dictated the date choice this year.
Set for Saturday, February 23rd, here are the details from the official press release…
TICKETS ON SALE BEGINNING SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 23
This is the seventh year that the “Arctic Tailgate” party will mark the start of individual ticket sales. The Klement’s Famous Racing SausagesTM, Bernie Brewer and Brewers alumni players will also be on hand to greet the fans. The first 2,000 fans in line will receive a hot dog and soda, compliments of Klement’s, Pepsi and Sportservice, as well as an Arctic Tailgate t-shirt. FOX Sports Wisconsin and Newsradio 620 WTMJ will both serve as media sponsors.
Please note the following safety regulations for the Arctic Tailgate. Participants will not be permitted to set up camp prior to noon on Thursday, February 21. No hand-made or hand-built shelters shall be permitted. No shelters made of cardboard or wood will be permitted. Shelters with a footprint greater than 100 square feet are not permitted unless otherwise approved by the Brewers. Miller Park power sources are not available for public use and gas generators are not permitted on the property. Only State-Approved gas/propane heating/grilling units with fuel-valve turn-offs and self-contained charcoal/wood units are permitted; provided, however, that they must be a minimum distance of 25 feet from the building or shelters. Activity and items permitted on the premises are subject to the approval of the Brewers. The Brewers reserve the right to remove any shelter, items, or individuals from the property.
Only a very limited number of tickets for Opening Day will be available at this event (note: Miller Park Box Office will be the only place where fans will be able to purchase individual Opening Day tickets on February 23; no phone or online orders will be accepted). Each fan will be limited to a maximum of four tickets for Opening Day, based on availability. Meanwhile, through Monday, February 11, fans can visit Brewers.com and register for the chance to be selected in an Opening Day opportunity to purchase up to four tickets to Opening Day and up to eight tickets to Gold and Marquee Games at Miller Park this season.
Fans will also be able to purchase parking passes in advance for all home dates at Miller Park including Opening Day. Advance general parking passes for Opening Day and all other games are priced at $9 with Preferred Parking at $14 per pass. Bus passes can also be obtained in advance for $35. For Opening Day, there is a purchase limit of two advance parking passes per ticket order. A complete listing of the parking prices is listed below.
In addition to the Miller Park Box Office, fans will be able to buy tickets and parking at Brewers.com or by phone at (414) 902-4000. The Miller Park Box Office will be open until 5 p.m. on February 23.
