The Burlington Bees are excited to welcome back some fan-favorite events and usher in new, exciting reasons to come out to Community Field in 2020. Single game tickets go on sale beginning March 2, but several discounted packages and season tickets are available for the holidays.
Many one-night special events are planned throughout the season. The popular Bark at the Park event has been turned into a series of four events and renamed Pups and Pints. Mediapolis Veterinary Clinic will sponsor a giveaway bobble head dog in memory of Rookie, the Bees late ballpark dog. A special package price will include admission for one human, one dog, a beer and a dog treat.
