The exciting monster truck show is coming to Capital One Arena January 26-27, 2019. As Fairfax Family Fun has been doing for several years now, we once again have an opportunity to win four tickets to the show! Please read below to learn more about Monster Jam and how you can win free tickets.
About the show
Monster Jam® is an “unexpected, unscripted and unforgettable,” family-friendly motor sport event sure to get you adrenaline pumping. Young or old, boys and girls alike, anyone who loves excitement is sure to be entertained. Each of the three shows coming to DC features a battle for the championship, with each competitor contending in customized high-powered vehicles. The competing vehicles include the Monster Jam Speedsters, Monster Jam all-terrain vehicles, and of course, the iconic Monster Jam trucks, in six events sure to leave fans on the edge of their seats.
We have enjoyed Monster Jam shows numerous times and can tell you these make for a great family day out. Just make sure to bring good ear plugs, ear covers, or noise-canceling headphones (especially for young kids) as these events can get very loud. You can read our review of the 2017 show for an ida of what to expect.
The 2019 Monster Jam season will see athletes on each tour battle it out every weekend from January to May to be crowned the tour champion and receive an automatic bid to Monster Jam World Finals XX that will be held in Orlando for the first-time-ever. The Monster Jam drivers are trained world-class male and female athletes who have mastered not only the physical strength and mental stamina needed to compete, but the vital dexterity to control 12,000-pound machines capable of doing backflips, vertical two-wheel skills and racing at speeds up to 70 miles per hour to produce jaw-dropping, live motor sports action seen around the world.
Now across all Monster Jam events, fans in every city will have the chance to vote for the winner in the two-wheel and freestyle competitions by real-time, in-venue fan voting on their smartphones. For a special experience, fans can attend the pre-event Pit Party before the January 26 and 27 1:00 p.m. events. At each Pit Party, fans can get up-close-and personal with the Monster Jam trucks and drivers, take photos and get autographs. It’s a neat experience to see these trucks up close (that’s when you realize how big they really are!) and the drivers are always friendly and engaging with their fans.
Featured trucks this year in DC (the schedule is subject to change) are: Grave Digger, Scooby Doo, Nitro Menace, Monster Mutt Dalmatian, Stinger, Pretty Wicked, Barbaria, and Bad News Travel Fast.
All competitions take place at Capital One Arena, 601 F St NW, Washington, DC 20004. Showtimes are Saturday, January 26, at 1:00 pm and 7:00 pm, and Sunday, January 27 at 1:00 pm.
