BALTIMORE -- Tickets are on sale for the Orioles' annual FanFest, to be held Jan. 31 at the Baltimore Convention Center. This year's event -- presented by Visit Sarasota County -- begins at 11 a.m. ET and goes until 6 p.m., with appearances by numerous current and former players along with clinics, exhibits and interactive games.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for children (14 and under) and seniors. They are available online at 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 will also be sold on the day of the event at the Convention Center and Camden Yards Box Office. Those who were 2014 Season Plan Members will receive their complimentary FanFest tickets via email, and they will also get early entry beginning at 10 a.m. ET. Dugout Club members will also receive their tickets through email.
Autograph vouchers for the event will go on sale Jan. 17 at 10 a.m. ET, with the team's autograph policy the same as 2014. Children ages 4-14 will have a specially designated Kids Only player autograph station, presented by ESSKAY, that 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 orioles.com/fanfest, with all of the proceeds going to children's charities through OriolesREACH.
FanFest will also 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, a silent auction benefitting the Orioles Charitable Foundation and a tour of the O's clubhouse at Oriole Park.
The sale of individual game tickets this season will be at a later date, though there will be Orioles representatives on hand at FanFest for those looking to become Season Plan holders. Complimentary parking for FanFest is available in Lot B/C.
