Major League Baseball announced the return and expansion of one of the league’s most successful new events, MLB FoodFest Presented by Budweiser. After selling out its tasteful debut in New York during the spring of 2018 in 48 hours, MLB has expanded FoodFest to three locations across the globe in 2019: Los Angeles, New York and London.
The new edition of MLB FoodFest descends on downtown Los Angeles from Friday, April 26 – Sunday, April 28 at Magic Box. New York and London will host the much anticipated event in the second half of the season, with more details to be announced in the coming months. Like last year, all 30 Clubs designated one concession item to represent them with this year’s menu ranging from ballpark classics to stadium-exclusive fan favorites and original menu items debuting in their ballpark this season.
Returning from the inaugural MLB FoodFest are six fan favorites, including the Mariners Toasted Grasshoppers and the D-Backs Churro Dogs. In addition to the 30 Club food selections, one unique item from each of this season’s international event host cities will also be available. That includes the Fish and Chips with Mushy Peas from London, the Sultanes de Monterrey “Monster Dog” from Monterrey, Mexico, and the Japanese Curry from Tokyo.
Tickets can only be secured online prior to arrival at the venue. Anyone purchasing and using a ticket that includes alcohol must be 21 years of age or older. Please drink responsibly. The special event is open from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Sunday. Each ticket grants access to the space for a designated two-hour block.
Ticket levels for this year’s event include:
Standard Ticket – 8 different food items ($45) + 3 beers ($60)
MVP Ticket – 33 different food items ($75) + 3 beers ($90)
Each ticket includes half-size servings of the portions you can find in ballparks across the country, while soft drinks and water are complimentary.
As the first-ever presenting sponsor of MLB FoodFest, Budweiser will have a Brewmaster and custom beer bar on-site for attendees 21 years of age or older. Anheuser-Busch will also provide a recommended food & beer pairing for each of the 33 ballpark items. Additionally, for interested fans of age, the Brewmaster can describe the brewing process and introduce the new Budweiser Innovation Discovery Reserve, an American Red Lager celebrating the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.
Also new for 2019 is an MLB FoodFest merchandise shop which will retail limited edition caps, shirts and collectibles on-site at each event. For tickets and more information on the event, visit MLB.com/FoodFest and follow #MLBFoodFest on social media.
