Well, the team finally made it to the postseason (you’ll have to forget about that historic Game 5 collapse in the National League Division Series), and there are plenty of Washington Nationals fans out there that would love nothing more than to meet their heroes up close and personal.

It’s for the faithful among you, the ones who suffered through several years of mediocrity and downright embarrassment, that I herald NatsFest at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on Saturday, January 26.

A family-friendly event (as you can verily tell by clicking the above link), tickets for adults are $20, with children’s passes going for $10. Season ticket holders get in for $15/$5 respectively, but if you hold season tickets, you better already know about this event or someone isn’t doing their job. Kids two and under get in free.

NatsFest runs from noon to 4 p.m. (11 a.m.-4 p.m. for season-ticket holders). Plenty of activities here. There will be player-and-mascot photographs to be had, a Q&A stage, Nationals merchandise, Nationals authenticated memorabilia, kids events, live batting cages, interactive games, and a lounge and food court.

The Walter E. Washington Convention Center is easy to get to, located right next to the Mt. Vernon Sq 7th St-Convention Center stop on the Metrorail’s Green/Yellow Line.

This sounds like a great way for fans to connect with a team on the rise in a city where it’s great to rent an apartment. Find your next apartment in the area with Apartment Showcase.
