Capitals Convention, Fan Fest Highlight Upcoming Capitals Events
Second annual convention will be held Oct. 2 at Washington Convention Center
The second annual Capitals Convention moves downtown this year to the Washington Convention Center on Saturday, Oct. 2. The event was a tremendous success in its first year, attracting a sold-out crowd of more than 5,000 to a day-long interactive and informational celebration of the Capitals, featuring the entire roster of current players and a number of prominent alumni. Tickets go on sale Monday, June 14, to season-ticket holders and Wednesday, June 16, to the general public at WashingtonCaps.com. Ticket prices are $40 for adults and $25 for children 14 and younger if purchased by June 30 (adult price increases to $45 on July 1). Two other ticket options are available: a $500 golden ticket with special access to every autograph session and a VIP room and a $30 ticket without autograph access.
Fan Fest will be held on the final day of the Capitals Development Camp, which will be held July 12-17 at Kettler Capitals Iceplex in Arlington, Va. The entire camp is open to the public (complete on-ice schedule still TBD), with a scrimmage set for Saturday, July 17, at 10 a.m. In addition to the scrimmage Fan Fest will feature the team’s annual equipment sale, inflatable games and autograph sessions. Season-ticket holders will have the first opportunity to shop at the equipment sale; details on that opportunity will be sent to each account in this week’s planholder update.
