Giants KNBR FanFest

FanFest Tips

Entrances
Fans can enter FanFest using one of three Oracle Park entrances : Willie Mays Gate, Lefty O'Doul Gate and 2nd and King Street Gate. The Marina Gate will be used for exit only. Ballpark access will not be available from the Giants Dugout Store or Public House. All gates will open at 10:00 a.m.

 

Dignity Health Q&A Theater
The Dignity Health Q&A Theater will be stationed in Seals Plaza. From 10am-11am, Giants Spanish Broadcaster Erwin Higueros will conduct interviews with Spanish speaking Giants players and alumni. From 11am-3pm, you will find KNBR talent conducting live interviews with players, coaches and medical staff. Fans will have the opportunity to ask questions to the players and featured VIPs. The theater can only be accessed from inside the ballpark; through the Garden on field level. The theater will not be accessible from outside the ballpark. Theater capacity will be closely monitored and enforced.

 

Autographs
Fans will find players, coaches, alumni, broadcasters and other Giants VIPs signing autographs at designated locations throughout Oracle Park. Autograph stations will be on the Alaska Airlines Club Level at Section 231(for kids 16 & under only), in the Alaska Airlines Loft and on the View Level at Sections 316 and 332. Please be advised that lines will be long. VIPs will rotate between stations approximately every 50 minutes. Posed photos are not permitted; limit one autograph per person, per VIP and waiting for the next group of VIPs is not permitted. The lines must continuously move. The Giants aim to keep fans waiting in line informed of the wait times throughout the day, but it is likely that not all fans in line will receive an autograph.

If a guest is unable to stand in line due to mobility, they can visit the autograph station exit to receive an access pass for a designated return time (mirroring the main line wait time). The access pass allows the guest to return to that autograph station's exit to be integrated into the line. The access pass will be valid for the pass holder and up to 3 guests only.

 

Selfie Station
Fans will have the chance to take a selfie with players, coaches, alumni, broadcasters and other Giants VIPs at the Selfie Station on the View Level at Section 302. Please be advised that lines will be long. VIPs will rotate between stations approximately every 50 minutes. Limit one selfie per person, per VIP and waiting for the next group of VIPs is not permitted. The lines must continuously move. The Giants aim to keep fans waiting in line informed of the wait times throughout the day, but it is possible that not all fans in line will receive a selfie.

If a guest is unable to stand in line due to mobility, they can visit the selfie station exit to receive an access pass for a designated return time (mirroring the main line wait time). The access pass allows the guest to return to that station's exit to be integrated into the line. The access pass will be valid for the pass holder and up to 3 guests only.

 

Transportation Options

As always, taking transit, walking, or biking are the best ways to reach Oracle Park. Those planning to drive or take transit should plan ahead using the resources below. Please allow extra time due to construction and Port/ship activity in the area.

Fans taking public transportation should be aware of modifications to Caltrain and Muni's normal service. All other public transit services will operate on a regular Saturday schedule. Please use trip-planning apps or visit individual operators' websites for up-to-the-minute information on arrivals.

 

  • Caltrain: Allow extra time due to the Caltrain Electrification Tunnel Work. As on all weekends since October, northbound rail service ends just south of San Francisco, at Bayshore Station, with express buses providing connections to and from 4th and King Station, just one block from Oracle Park. Caltrain will have buses waiting at the Bayshore station for each train arrival and will have ambassadors on hand to help guide people to the correct bus. Caltrain will run an extra northbound train to get fans to the ballpark for the beginning of FanFest, at 10 a.m.
  • See the full schedule to identify a train time that works for you. After the event, please refer to the regular weekend schedule.
