Road Trip to Washington, DC – Phillies Nation

Road Trip to Washington, DC

Phillies Nation DC tailgate Party This year’s much anticipated road trip to Washington, DC to see the Phillies take on the Nationals will take place on Saturday, May 16th.

If you have not yet been to the new Nationals Park, now is the time to go – and this is the only Saturday the Phillies will be in DC all season. The game is at 7pm and we will be meeting at McFadden’s in Citizens Bank Park at noon for discounted drinks and an exclusive Phillies Nation party. You can park in the CBP lots and the bus will leave at 2pm.

Tickets are the same price as last year, $80, and include:

  • Seat to and from DC on a comfy motorcoach showing classic Phillies videos
  • Tickets to the game in Section 102 (next to Phillies bullpen)
  • Tailgate party in parking lot and refreshments on the bus (including some of Tim’s favorite beers)
  • Lots of Phillies and Phillies Nation giveaways

Click here to reserve your spot now.

If we get enough people we’ll try for two buses, but for now we’re planning on just one bus.

Not immediately ready to sign up?  Check out the fun times from last year’s trip and the one in 2006.  Stay tuned for our more road trips to visit the Yankees and Mets as well as other parties throughout the season.

    Yes, if you live in the area, you can just get tickets to the game, or tickets and tailgate. I’ll post that info soon.

    I’d love to go and bring a few friends. Do you have a deadline for this game? If this game doesn’t work with my crew, we would love to see the brand new New York Stadiums this season. Catch you on Twitter! 8D

    Info for DC-area fans has been posted.

    There is no official cutoff for signing up…just until we sell out. But if we sell out and like 30 people are still interested, we’ll get a second bus.

    how much for just the tailgate party?

    Damn I wish I still live in the area. Living in CO I have to resort to seeing Philly sports teams in CO, and I can honestly say the tailgating in CO SUCKS!!! CO fans show up 30 minutes before the game (earliest), meanwhile the Philadelphia fans are there hours before the games tailgating. PATHETIC!
