BARNSTORMERS ANNOUNCE 2021 PROMOTIONAL SCHEDULE
The Lancaster Barnstormers are BACK! The 2021 home opener will take place on Friday, June 4th as we honor the healthcare heroes of Lancaster and pay tribute to those who continue to serve our community tirelessly and selflessly during these unprecedented times. We look forward to putting a spotlight on these heroes and acknowledging their extraordinary contributions during a special Opening Night ceremony!
Following Opening Day, the Stormers look forward to welcoming fans back to the ballpark for a festive summer that includes, among other events, tributes to some of our favorite sweet treats.
On June 26, the Barnstormers will present a night paying tribute to our neighbors at Hershey’s Chocolate World with a 4D Show pass giveaway for fans and more entertainment. Three weeks later, on July 18, National Ice Cream Day will be celebrated at Clipper Magazine Stadium with our friends at Turkey Hill Dairy and the Turkey Hill Experience. One lucky fan will even walk away with a 1 Year Supply of Turkey Hill ice cream! Finally, on August 27, kids will be able to participate in our famous outfield “Candy Drop” during Willy Wonka Night!
Many other events will celebrate the region and its rich history. For the second home game, June 5, the Barnstormers will once again pay tribute to their predecessors on a Lancaster diamond, the Red Roses. The first 1,000 fans to the June 5th game will also take home a Red Roses Hat presented by Giant. On July 10, the Barnstormers will host the annual Lancaster Farm Show presented by First Citizens Community Bank, which honors the great agricultural presence in Lancaster County. The Lancaster Farm Show has become one of the most popular events of the summer season at Clipper Magazine Stadium.
Far be it from the Barnstormers to let a July 17 home game go by without celebrating Lancaster at 717 Night!
Going a little further from our hometown, the Barnstormers will pay tribute to the great city of Philadelphia on September 10.
Of course, many favorites are back as well. Off-season holidays will be celebrated in-season with Christmas in July on 7/30 and Halloween in the Ballpark with costumes and trick-or-treating on October 8 to kick off the final weekend series. Also in the festive spirit will be Cylo’s Birthday, celebrated with a special pajama party on June 27!
Several weekend nights will be dedicated to movies of the fantasy and sci-fi genres. Where else might you encounter Porky Pig, Batman and Princess Leia all within a span of three weeks? The series will start with Space Jam Night on July 16 in honor of the release of the new movie “Space Jam: A New Legacy” starring LeBron James. Princess Day with special appearances by Elsa, Tiana, Elena and Belle will take place on June 11. Harry Potter Night follows on July 31 with Superheroes Day the following afternoon with special appearances by Wonder Woman, Captain America, Doctor Strange, Spiderman, Scarlet Witch & Supergirl. It all concludes with the annual Star Wars Night on Saturday, August 7 with character appearances and a Baby Cylo Bobblehead Giveaway presented by Penn State Health.
We’ll be celebrating a couple of special anniversaries at the ballpark this summer. EHD Insurance will be celebrating their 125th Anniversary on July 14th and tickets will only be $1.25 for fans to attend this game. More magic comes to the ballpark on September 26, when the Barnstormers celebrate the 50th anniversary of the opening of Disney World in Orlando.
Real heroes will also be honored at the stadium in September. First responders will take part in the annual stair climb in recognition of the 20th anniversary of the horrific events of 9/11 during which so many of their colleagues in New York City and the Washington, DC area sacrificed their lives for their communities.
Clipper Magazine Stadium will be transformed to Margaritaville and fans may enjoy cheeseburgers in our ballpark paradise on Parrothead Night on July 9.
Boy Scouts will have their annual Boy Scout Night Sleepover on June 25. We’ll celebrate Greek Heritage Night on August 19! In partnership with Kegel’s Produce and the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, Greek Heritage Night will feature traditional Greek favorite food items such as gyros and souvlaki for all to eat and fans can enjoy special Greek performances prior to the game. Recovery Day will take place on August 29 in partnership with Retreat Behavioral Health. Ladies Night is scheduled for October 9, as the Lancaster County Police Departments honor the fight against breast cancer.
