Boston Red Sox Announce Jerry Garcia Day
The Boston Red Sox will honor late Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia with Jerry Day at Fenway Park. The tribute will take place on Tuesday, August 6 when the home team takes on the Kansas City Royals.
Grateful Dead tribute act Terrapin will perform a special pre-game concert on Jersey Street before the game. Those who purchase tickets through the special offer will get a Jerry Garcia Red Sox t-shirt designed especially for the occasion. Sizes run small through extra-large and will be available on a first-come-first-served basis.
The Rex Foundation will receive a portion of proceeds from ticket sales. The Grateful Dead started the Rex Foundation with the aim “to help secure a healthy environment, promote individuality in the arts, provide support to critical and necessary social services, assist others less fortunate than ourselves, protect the rights of indigenous people and ensure their cultural survival, build a stronger community, and educate children and adults everywhere.”
