Everything you ever wanted to know about MLB FoodFest, all in one place.
Q: What time do I need to arrive for my time slot?
A: We recommend arriving 10 minutes before your time slot start time, to allow for checking-in and to ensure you get to experience the event for the maximum amount of time.
Q: Can I purchase tickets when I'm there?
A: If the event or time slot is sold out, you cannot purchase tickets at the venue. You can check mlb.com/foodfest to see ticket availability.
Q: What is the age limit?
A: There is no age limit to attend the event; however the alcohol can only be purchased by guests aged 21 and over.
Q: What does my ticket package include at the event?
A: With your ticket purchase, you receive two hours of your prepaid volume of food (and beer if applicable) samples from MLB ballparks across the country (plus three from our international sites!). Your two hours begin at the time on your ticket, not on your arrival, so please pay attention to your ticketed time slot.
There are four different ticket options:
- 8 food items, no alcoholic beverages
- 8 food items with 3 beers
- Up to 33 food items, no alcoholic beverages
- Up to 33 food items, 3 beers
Q: How long can I be at the FoodFest?
A: Out of respect for our other guests, we ask that you remain in the venue only during your ticketed time slot.
Q: What kinds of food are being served?
A: This is not your average ballpark food. While we keep some of the fan-favorites, each ballpark has picked an item they feel shows off the level of culinary experience you receive at their stadium. This includes sandwiches, nachos, burgers, chicken, fries, and more, all in a way you haven't seen before. Each sample is about half the size of what you would receive in a ballpark.
Q: What if I have food allergies or restrictions?
A: All food will be prepared in the same kitchen which means all dishes may contain dairy, nuts, gluten, etc. Please ask the staff whether or not certain allergens are in the dishes you are looking to eat, and also consult the menu at each stand. Due to the nature of the event, there are no vegetarian, gluten-free or vegan options.
Q: What happens if my ticket is for 11:00 AM, but I arrive at 11:30 AM?
A: You are welcome to arrive when you would like; however, we are only able to serve you within your ticketed time frame. If you arrive at 11:30 AM, you will still only receive samples between the hours of 11 AM and 1 PM.
Q: Where is the venue?
A: MLB FoodFest is at Magic Box at THE REEF, located at 1933 S Broadway, Los Angeles, CA.
Q: Is there parking available?
A: Parking is available. You can purchase a parking pass in advance via the normal FoodFest online ticket purchase flow ($20), or purchase on site day-of the event, but space is not guaranteed.
Q: Can I bring a friend or my child?
A: Absolutely! However, we recommend that everyone in your party purchases a ticket in advance of the event. We cannot guarantee that there will be any walk-up ticket availability. All attendees must have a ticket, including children. Youngsters under 24 inches can enter for free.
Q: Can I get a refund?
A: There will be no refunds for this event. We will go on rain or shine.
Q: Is there a dress code?
A: Nope! You are welcome to come as you please. We do ask that you keep all clothing appropriate for families in attendance.
Q: Is the event outside?
A: FoodFest is completely indoors.
