/ Washington Capitals
ARLINGTON, Va. – The Washington Capitals will host the 2010 Capitals Convention at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and a Fan Fest at Kettler Capitals Iceplex, two fan-friendly events that highlight the team’s schedule of events in the coming months.
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.
