2024 Charlotte Knights Promo Guide

February 19, 2024 - International League (IL)
Charlotte Knights News Release


Ahhhh, the smell of freshly cut grass, the savory taste of salty buttered popcorn melting onto your tongue, an ice-cold beer in your hands, and the sound of a baseball cracking off the bat. Can it just be baseball season already?

All of these things are the core of what makes America's pastime so special to watch, and we're happy to bring these essential baseball elements to each and every game, but we do realize there's way more to a game experience than just the actual game.

Sure, each baseball team has their own unique way of doing things, but what makes the Charlotte Knights way stand out above the rest?

Well, outside of our incredible skyline view, limitless food options, drink specials, fireworks shows, extravagant themes, and more... (hold on, let us take a breath) we've just released our 2024 promotions calendar that is without a doubt our most creative, fun-filled, and out-of-the-box we've ever had in franchise history.

So yeah, we bring the baseball, but we bring a lot more to the table too.

Need a guide? Want to picture yourself at Truist Field enjoying one (or a few of) our jam-packed, innovative, and entertaining promotional theme nights? Well, look no further as we present to you the 2024 Charlotte Knights Promo Guide, and don't forget, Opening Night together with Truist is set for Tuesday, April 2nd! Individual-game tickets are on sale NOW, so get them here!

WHAT'S NEW?!

Well, a lot to be honest. Each year we push the envelope and bring new, creative ideas to the table that we think will be a hit with our fans, so below let us take you inside of what we expect to be a few theme nights with some sought after tickets.

(KNIGHTS VERSION) (Friday, May 3rd): Is happening and no, we can't calm down. Some could say we are in our trendy era, but we've had this in our plans for a while. And will this feel like a baseball game or a concert, who knows? But, we hope you'll sing along with us to all the tunes you know and love as you rock your LED light up bracelet giveaway we will be handing out to fans as they enter the ballpark. We won't be the anti-hero on Friday, May 3rd... See you there... and please be Swift about getting your tickets!

Oh, did we mention there's an inflatable night club? You can go ahead and get your tickets for that here.

MYSTERY ON MINT (Thursday, June 20th): Murder mystery at the ballpark? You heard that right! Plus, Detective Homer the Dragon bobbleheads will be given away! Did I mention there will be themed cocktails too? Elevate your night out and bring it to the ballpark on June 20th.

MARGARITAVILLE NIGHT (Saturday, August 31st): We will be looking for our lost shaker of salt on Saturday, August 31st! Margarita's, post-game fireworks, and good times at the ballpark? Yeah, go ahead and buy your tickets now.

RENAISSANCE NIGHT (Friday, August 2nd): Friday, August 2nd we are throwing it back to the Renaissance era... perfectly suit for a team called the Knights! Join us in our Uptown castle (ballpark) to visit with Renaissance characters, and enjoy post-game fireworks, too! Ed's Medieval Knights will be in attendance bringing dragons, unicorns, and more!

CARNIVAL NIGHT (Friday, June 7th): Plus Knights-themed carnival posters as a giveaway on Friday, June 7th. Again, we're giving you a three-for-one special here. Carnival games, fun activities, and baseball all at one place!

WHAT'S RETURNING?!

Well, we don't want to brag, but we've had a lot of promo success over the years, which is why we always bring back fan-favorites year after year to our promotions calendar.

We see you, we notice the things we do that move the needle, that bring y'all joy! Our top priority is bringing smiles, good times, good food, good drinks, and great memories to our fans. We think these returning promos will help do just that (ps. these aren't our only returners... just a few highlights!)

STAR WARS NIGHT (Saturday, May 4th): There's a reason why this game sells out every year... but this year it's on May 4th so we get extra brownie points for that... Mark this special date down and we'll see you there! (Lightsabers encouraged btw.)

WITCHES AND WIZARDS NIGHT (Friday, July 12th): Sorting hats, gaudy decor, wands, scarf giveaways and more?! No longer will you just be in Charlotte, but in the magical wizarding universe of Truist Field. This game was packed last season, so you know we're bringing it back.

BARK IN THE BALLPARK: It's always a PAWTY with our furry friends in the house! All the dates for Bark in the Ballpark are listed above! Water provided and good times guaranteed!

NEGRO LEAGUES TRIBUTE (Saturday, April 6th): Featuring our Charlotte Black Hornets jerseys, this is always one of our most favorite games of the season, as we pay tribute to former Negro Leagues baseball players who paved the way for equality and inclusion in our sport.

SCRANTON NIGHT (Thursday, April 18th): Celebrating a classic sitcom with a t-shirt giveaway! All the trivia, games, and fun is coming your way live at the ballpark! Maybe even bring your co-workers for a night out from the actual office! Plus, we've got a t-shirt giveaway too!

WHAT GAMES SHOULD I BRING THE KIDS TO?!

Well, every game if you really want to know. Seriously, we have family-friendly fun at every single Knights game on the schedule, but if you must know, here are a few family favs of ours from our promo calendar this season!
