The Dodgers will hold the 2023 FanFest presented by Budweiser with free entertainment, fun, games, and opportunities to meet Dodger players for fans of all ages on Saturday, February 4th.

General admission and VIP experiences will be available starting Thursday and will include player autographs, player meet and greets, the opportunity to take a selfie with a player, and behind-the-scenes tours. 

DJ Severe, the Dodgers’ in-game DJ, Mariachi Garibaldi de Jaime Cuellar, and DJ Nico Blitz will welcome fans as they enter through the Centerfield Plaza gates. 

On-stage interviews with current and former Dodger players will take place on the field and fans will have an opportunity to partake in games, inflatables, a rock wall, and photo opportunities. Behind-the-scenes tours will be available for purchase, including a press box experience with Hall of Fame broadcaster Jaime Jarrín, organist Dieter Ruehle, and public address announcer Todd Leitz, and a Botanic Garden tour. 

All concession stands and team stores will be open in the outfield areas and season tickets, premium tickets, individual and group tickets will all be on sale during the event.

A portion of the proceeds from the autograph and VIP experience tickets will benefit the programs of the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF).

The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF) will host its annual Yard Sale with one-of-a-kind Dodger items, including jerseys, T-shirts, and more. LADF will also have its Mystery Bag Fundraiser where fans can purchase an official Major League baseball autographed by players, alumni, and broadcasters for a price of 1 ball for $60 or 2 balls for $100, autographed photos for $20, and autographed jerseys for an $80 donation, while supplies last.

FanFest will also feature fan-friendly activations from other partners including BluePrints, California Mental Health Services Authority, Jim Beam, Hornitos Tequila, Kaleo, Levelwear, UCLA Health, and Yaamava’ Resort and Casino.

To download a ticket via the MLB Ballpark app, fans can visit Dodgers.com/FanFest. Parking is free and gates will open for the event at 9:30 a.m. FanFest will take place rain or shine; in case of inclement weather some on-field activities may change without prior notice.
