The Orioles announced Tuesday that tickets for the 2015 FanFest at Baltimore Convention Center now are on sale, and autograph vouchers will go on sale Jan. 17.
The event, which will be held Jan. 31 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., will include several activities in addition to the autograph stations. Season-ticket holders can enter early at 10 a.m.
Last year, more than 15,000 fans attended FanFest, according to the Orioles. It was the second-highest total in the history of the event, trailing only the 18,500 who went in 2013.
The Orioles said this year's autograph policy at FanFest will be the same as 2014 and is designed to support OriolesREACH and enhance fan experience with shorter wait times.
For children ages 4-14, there will be a special autograph station that is free and will be open continuously throughout the day. All other autograph stations will require advance purchase of vouchers that will be available exclusively on Orioles.com/FanFest beginning at 10 a.m. Jan. 17. The proceeds from the sale of the vouchers will benefit children's charities through OriolesREACH.
FanFest tickets cost $12 for adults and $6 for children 14 and under and adults over 55. They can be purchased online at Orioles.com/FanFest, by phone at 1-888-848-BIRD, at the Camden Yards box office and at the official team store in York, Pa.
On the day of FanFest, tickets will be sold at the Convention Center and the Camden Yards box office. The team said that 2014 season-ticket holders and Dugout Club members will receive an email this week with an offer for complimentary FanFest tickets that can be redeemed online through their My Tickets account.
Other activities at FanFest include: appearances by current and former Orioles players and coaches; question-and-answer forums with players and front office staff; baseball clinics for children; special news conferences for children to ask questions to players; memorabilia dealers; a silent auction for the Orioles Charitable Foundation; a spring training in Sarasota, Fla., exhibit; a tour of the Camden Yards clubhouse; and official merchandise available for purchase.
The Orioles will offer free parking during FanFest in Lot B/C at Camden Yards. For more information about the annual event, go to Orioles.com/FanFest.
Representatives will be at FanFest to answer questions about season-ticket plans, and an announcement on individual game tickets will be made at a later date, according to the team.
