Peanut Allergy Friendly Games
The Red Sox are happy to be able to offer designated "Peanut Allergy Friendly" (PAF) sections for a variety of games in 2023:
- Sunday, April 2
- Sunday, April 30
- Sunday, July 9
- Sunday, August 13
- Sunday, September 10
The PAF seating area on these dates will be located in Right Field Roof Terrace (A and B) on the 4th level of the park.
While we strive to provide the safest and most comfortable accommodations possible, due to the nature of the game-day experience Fenway Park can never be considered completely "peanut free." For details on the specific precautions taken for our Peanut Allergy Friendly program, please see the FAQs.
For fans with especially severe allergies who cannot be outdoors, please contact [email protected], and we will do our best to make alternate accommodations.
*Please note that participants will need to sign a waiver prior to entering Fenway Park. This will be sent via email and is mandatory for all fans with a peanut allergy.
Frequently Asked Questions
What makes these dates "Peanut Allergy Friendly"?
We have several measures in place to ensure a safe and comfortable environment at each of our PAF games:
- The Terraces are thoroughly cleaned prior to each game and carefully inspected for any remaining traces of peanuts
- Medical staff is present at all times in case of emergency
- Additional security staff is in place to validate tickets and allow only PAF guests into the seating area
- Peanuts are prohibited in surrounding sections and concession stands closest to the Terrace level remove peanut and peanut products from their menu
- Fan Services staff members are located in the sections throughout the duration of the game to answer questions and assist as needed
What concessions are safe to eat if I have a peanut allergy?
Nearly all food prepared at the park is safe for those with peanut allergies, with the exception of Fritos, ice cream cones and of course, bags of peanuts and peanut M&Ms. Each concession stand should be equipped with an allergen chart that you may ask to see if you have further questions.
What if none of the concession options are suitable for me or the members in my group?
We understand that our fans all have different dietary needs. If someone in your party requires a special diet and you need to bring food, please feel free to do so.
I've already bought tickets to another game that isn't Peanut Allergy Friendly, what can I do?
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer a designated allergy friendly section at every game, but that doesn't mean that there aren't still options for you! You should be sure to pack cleaning wipes and necessary medication just in case your seats are surrounded by other fans who are eating peanuts. If you feel uncomfortable, our Fan Services team (located at Booths near Gates B, D and E) can often relocate fans to more appropriate seating. While this is never a guaranteed solution, we encourage fans to inquire about availability before leaving the park.
What if I have an allergic reaction at the park?
Please seek medical attention at our Beth Israel Deaconess First Aid stand, which is located on the lower concourse, behind Grandstand 12. If you are unable to travel to this location, alert the nearest staff member and medical staff will come to you.
What does standing room mean?
Our Terrace level is a great place to watch a game, however there are a limited number of assigned seats in this area. Standing Room tickets indicate that you will not have a specific seat associated with your ticket, but there are a number of additional high-top barstools and tables for use on a first-come, first-served basis.
What if it rains?
Our PAF program operates in the same fashion that regular games do in regards to weather delays and postponements. If a game is postponed due to weather and rescheduled for a later date, tickets for that game will be valid for the make-up game and we will still have our PAF section.
