More than Baseball at Nats Park



Within the past two weeks, I've been to two Nats games. Next week I'll be there again. Hearing that, you might think I'm a huge baseball fan--but if you know me, you'd find it more accurate that I have yet to truly watch a full inning this summer.


I love the atmosphere of being at a baseball game. And at Nats Park, there's baseball for the best of us, but for the rest of us, there's a lot more going on! Outside of hanging out with friends, eating, and people-watching (my favorite baseball game activities), I've collected a bunch of other cool things you can do at Nats Park this year.


Yoga in the Outfield

June 23 and August 18, post game

Tickets

Buy a special game day ticket and then join your fellow yogis in on the field for a 45-minute yoga session after the game. All participants get to use and take home a Nats yoga mat, too!


The Congressional Baseball Game for Charity

June 26 @ 7:05pm

Tickets

OK, technically this is baseball...but is it really?? Watch the Democrat and Republican teams--all made up of acting Senators and Representatives--duke it out/relive/live their glory days on the baseball field. Tickets are $10 and proceeds go to (nonpartisan) charities.


Crab Feast on the Field

July 16, 6-10pm

Tickets

Maryland takes over Washington in a crab feast on the field. Eat crabs and sides, take a picture in the dugout, and bring home a koozie and crab mallet.


Topgolf CRUSH

August 22-25, tee times range from 8:30am-11pm

Tickets

Play Topgolf--except from the awesome venue of Nats Park. You can hit balls, eat, and drink--and at night, the targets on the field will glow. Apparently when your ball hits a target, it will display a light show and sound effect. Pretty cool!


Pups in the Park

September 13 @ 7:05pm and September 28 @ 4:05pm

Tickets

Bring your dog to a baseball game...because why not?


Stitch and Pitch

September 28 @ 4:05pm

Tickets

Sit in a section with other fans of knitting, cross-stitch, crochet, etc. as you watch the game. I'm assuming you bring your current project along. So random--love it.


Faith Day

September 28 @ 4:05pm

Tickets

After you've watched some baseball and stitched your heart out, stay after the game for a celebration of faith with local churches and groups.


Enchant Christmas

November 22- December 29

Tickets

"The world's largest Christmas light maze and market" is coming to Nats Park. Um, sounds magical, count me in!!


*EVENTS AT THE BULLPEN

OK, The Bullpen is technically right outside Nats Park, but these events are worth a mention:


Truckeroo

6/28, 7/19, 8/2, 8/23, 9/20

No tickets required; event info here

Truckeroo is a DC classic. Hang out with your friends as you choose food and drinks from a swarm of food trucks parked inside the Bullpen.


White Ford Bronco Concert

July 12, doors @ 6pm

Tickets

Another DC classic. White Ford Bronco is the uncontested greatest 90s cover band of our city.


Free Food & Drinks for Chase Card Holders

September 3 & 25

No tickets required; event info here

Yes, you read that right. Free food and drinks before the game if you have a Chase credit or debit card.


Enjoy!!
