Happy hour starts when gates open 2 hours prior to the scheduled first pitch and ends 30 minutes prior to first pitch. Happy hour deals are available at three locations - Budweiser Terrace, Bud Light Loft and Budweiser Brew House. Enjoy free live entertainment, including bands, DJs, karaoke, or trivia, before every Wednesday-Saturday game on the Budweiser Terrace!
The PenFed Kids Fun Zone has been rebuilt and specifically designed for the youngest Nationals fans. Kids 10 and under are invited to enjoy the updated play structure. The PenFed Kids Fun Zone is located on the concourse next to the Right Field Gate. The area is open during all home games from when the gates open until the conclusion of the game. All kids using the play area must be supervised by an adult.
Sundays are Signature Sundays at Nationals Park! Two Nationals players will sign autographs for fans at every Sunday home game all season long. Autographs will take place at the top of the Nationals dugout starting one hour and ten minutes prior to first pitch, weather permitting and subject to player schedules. Fans must obtain a free voucher in order to participate in the autograph sessions - vouchers will be distributed on a first come, first served basis at Section 103, starting when the gates open two hours before first pitch. Fans are limited to one autograph voucher per person.
Lace up your shoes and get ready to run! All kids age 4-12 are invited to run the bases at Nationals Park after every Sunday afternoon home game, weather permitting. Kids will start their run at first base and they will be directed around the bases to home plate. Sliding into bases is prohibited. An adult must accompany each participating child to the field - adults will drop children off at first base and meet them near home plate. Please note that adults may not accompany children as they run the bases. One adult will be permitted onto the field per child participating in Kids Run the Bases.
The line for Kids Run the Bases forms outside the ballpark on the First Street sidewalk - participants should exit the ballpark through the right field gate and proceed to the line. The run will begin approximately 20 minutes after the conclusion of the game and the event usually lasts about an hour. Jr. Nationals Kids Club members age 12 and under receive access to an exclusive line that goes onto the field first.
Want to meet the famous Racing Presidents? The Racing Presidents and the GEICO Gecko will greet fans and pose for photos outside of section 131 during the 5th inning of every home game. Bring your camera or mobile device if you would like to have your picture taken with the Racing Presidents.
