Despite the polar vortex giving the Baltimore area some addition ice recently, believe it or not baseball season is right around the corner and the annual Baltimore Orioles FanFest will once again be the kick start to the season for fans.
FanFest will take place on February 1, and once again be held at the Baltimore Convention Center. Although you can purchase a ticket at the door, you can get your tickets ahead of time as they are now on sale, and can be purchased online at orioles.com/fanfest, via phone at 1-888-848-BIRD or at the Oriole Park box office and at the official team store at the York Galleria in York, Pa.
Tickets for FanFest itself are $12 for adults, and $6 for children 14 and under and those over 55. If you are a 2014 season plan holder or a Dugout Club member, you will be, or already have received complimentary tickets.
For those familiar with, or have been to FanFest before, expect much of the same as previous years as activities include Q&A forums with players, front office and media, clinics for children, memorabilia deals, a Spring Training exhibit, a tour of the Orioles' clubhouse and the chance to apply for seasonal employment with the organization.
Now onto one of the events at FanFest that most fans look forward to and that is the autograph sessions. Children 4-14 will have a designated autograph station free of charge and it will operate continuously throughout the day. All other autograph stations will once again require the advance purchase of autograph vouchers at orioles.com/fanfest. One great thing about the autograph voucher is that all of the proceeds benefit children's charities through the OriolesREACH program. Autograph vouchers can be purchased starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 18.
The team also announced that single game tickets for the 2014 season will also go on sale on Feb. 1, beginning at 10 a.m., and can be purchased at FanFest, as well as by phone, at the Camden Yard box office and the official team store.
For those worried about parking, complimentary parking for FanFest will be available in Lot B/C.
It is always a fun time at FanFest as several current and former Orioles will be present and its a great way to meet fans that share the passion for the Black and Orange.
