The Orioles announced today that tickets are now on sale for the club's annual FanFest event on Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017, at the Baltimore Convention Center. Orioles FanFest, presented by Visit Sarasota County, will feature appearances by current and former Orioles players and coaches as part of a day-long celebration of baseball that will also include clinics, exhibits and interactive games. The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., with early entry for Orioles Season Plan Members beginning at 10 a.m. as part of the Orange Carpet Program.
Tickets are available online at www.orioles.com/fanfest, via phone at 1-888-848-BIRD, at the Oriole Park Box Office and at the Official Team Store at the York Galleria in York, Pa. Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for children 14 and under and adults 60 and over. On the day of the event, FanFest tickets will be sold at the Convention Center and the Oriole Park Box Office if they are still available. 2016 Season Plan Members will receive an offer for complimentary FanFest tickets via email, which can be redeemed through their online My Orioles Tickets Account.
The Orioles' autograph policy for FanFest will duplicate the policy of the last several years and is designed to support youth charitable endeavors through OriolesREACH, as well as enhance the fan experience with shortened wait times. Children ages 4-14 will have a specially designated Kids Only player autograph station, presented by ESSKAY, which is free of charge and will operate continuously throughout the day. All other ESSKAY autograph stations at FanFest will require the advance purchase of autograph vouchers exclusively at www.orioles.com/fanfest, with all of the proceeds to benefit children's charities through OriolesREACH. Autograph vouchers will be available for purchase beginning at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 18.
In addition to autographs, other FanFest activities include question-and-answer forums with players and front office staff; clinics for children on a youth-sized baseball field; kids press conferences where young Orioles fans can ask questions to players; official Orioles merchandise and memorabilia available for purchase; a spring training in Sarasota exhibit; and a tour of the Orioles clubhouse at Oriole Park.
Orioles representatives will also be on hand to help answer questions from fans about becoming a Season Plan Member. An announcement regarding the sale of individual game tickets will be made at a later date.
Complimentary parking for FanFest is available in Lot B/C at Oriole Park. For updated information about the event, fans should visit www.orioles.com/fanfest.
