With Spring Training coming to an end, baseball season is officially around the corner. With warm weather on the horizon and March Madness in full effect, we are giddy. Our team is outdoor functions and spring cleaning! Maybe its the fresh baseball season, the start at 0-0 that makes us feel like it’s New Years Eve. We’re making resolutions and this year, we want to visit more baseball stadiums than we saw last year. Yes, this is an annual occurrence but this time, we’re going to make it happen…in our own backyard.
Being a New York-centric site, it’s only appropriate to quote Woody Allen when it comes to leaving this great city to see other stadiums.
“There is no question that there is an unseen world. The problem is, how far is it from midtown and how late is it open?”
How does that apply? How about the fact that MLB is bringing the stadiums to midtown! It'[s true! To celebrate the start of the 2018 season, Major League baseball is hosting the first-ever MLB FoodFest on Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22 in midtown, near Bryant Park.
Food festivals are nothing new to NYC and certainly nothing new to our team at New York Events. We eat. All the time. Now, we get to do it while visiting stadiums, while never leaving midtown! The one-of-a kind indoor food festival features special selections from each of the 30 baseball teams served under one roof. Every team is designated one concession item to represent them at MLB FoodFest. Now we get to try Cleveland’s Flamethrower pulled pork sandwich, Gioia’s Hot Salami Sandwich from St. Louis, Milwaukee’s Cheddar Beer Bratwurst, the Monte Khrush Davis Cristo sandwich served in Oakland, the South Side Horseshoe sausage sandwich from the White Sox and the Adobo Bao bun available at Yankee Stadium. Again, without ever leaving midtown! Who said New York wasn’t convenient?
Fans have two options for ticket purchases, which must be secured online, prior to arrival at the venue: Food for $25 and Food & Beer for $40. The Food & Beer tickets include three beer vouchers. Anyone purchasing and using a Food & Beer ticket must be 21 or older. Each ticket includes one tasting-sized serving of all 30 ballpark food items. Soft drinks and water are complimentary.
Tickets and more information on the event is available at mlb.com/foodfest.
