Winnipeg Jets announce details surrounding their annual Fan Fest celebration (Sept 23)

Fans will have a chance to get up close and personal with Jets players and prospects.

One of the biggest things that was missing the last few years during covid was interactions between the Jets/Moose organizations and their fans. Seeing it return the last little bit as life returns to normal has shown the importance of creating that connection even if it’s just the time it takes to say hello and take a photo with a fan.
