The Trail Blazers are celebrating the start of the 2021-22 NBA season at Moda Center with the annual Fan Fest slated for Saturday, October 2. This free event gives fans a first look at the 2021-22 Trail Blazers squad with plenty of new and old faces alike. Get a look behind the scenes at an open practice and a team scrimmage, plus food, fun and prizes for the whole family.
Each fan in attendance must register in advance to receive their free ticket at trailblazers.com/fanfest. Seating is general admission – fans are encouraged to arrive early for the best seats. New this year, the Trail Blazers are working with local nonprofit partners to reserve the first few courtside rows and provide special tickets to pre-determined Frontline and Health Care Workers. This special opportunity is a way for Rip City to thank the brave people who have been and continue to be on our front lines through the pandemic.
Doors open at 2:30 p.m. with open practice beginning at 2:45 p.m. and the team scrimmage beginning at 3:30 p.m. Fans can expect special appearances from the Trail Blazers broadcast team, Blaze the Trail Cat and more.
