Joey Votto, Nick Senzel Draw Thousands of Cincinnati Reds Fans to Redsfest at Duke Energy Center

Redsfest, a Cincinnati Reds fan gathering and activity convention, returned this year for the first time since 2019 – just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. The family-friendly event featured current and former player appearances, autograph and photograph sessions, interactive games, mascot performances and other entertainment at Duke Energy Convention Center on Dec. 2 and 3, 2022.

More than 70 Reds personalities were on hand, including Cincinnati Reds manager David Bell, first baseman Joey Votto, outfielders Nick Senzel and Stuart Fairchild, second baseman Jonathan India, catcher Tyler Stephenson and others. Fans also enjoyed a performance by the Zac Brown Band, which will play Great American Ball Park after the Reds battle the Milwaukee Brewers on June 2.

The Reds will kick off the 2023 season with a home opener against NL Central opponent the Pittsburgh Pirates on March 30 at Great American Ball Park. Cincinnati went 62-100 in 2022, just the second time the Reds have racked up 100 or more losses.
