MLB Serving Expanded FoodFest, Adds L.A., London To N.Y. For Second Course

By Barry Janoff

April 1, 2019: The first serving was so successful that MLB is bringing FoodFest back this year, with more locations, international offerings, merchandise and a presenting sponsor.

MLB FoodFest Presented by Budweiser — to include food offerings from all 30 league teams — will hit Los Angeles this month, then return to New York where the league held its first FoodFest in 2018 and add London during the second half of the season.

MLB is also working with league partner MasterCard for pre-sale tickets for card holders.

As with the premiere event last season in New York, food items will range from “ballpark classics to stadium-exclusive fan favorites and original menu items debuting in their ballpark this season.”

In addition to the 30 club food selections, MLB said that one unique item from each of this season’s international event host cities will also be available.

That includes Fish and Chips with Mushy Peas from London (Mitel & MLB Present London Series 2019), Japanese Curry from Tokyo (MGM Resorts Opening Series 2019) and Sultanes de Monterrey “Monster Dog” from Monterrey, Mexico (MLB Mexico Series 2019 Monterrey).

For the MLB Mexico Series 2019 Monterrey, the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks played a pair of Spring Training games (March 9-10), the Cincinnati Reds will host the St. Louis Cardinals for two regular-season games (April 13-14) and the Los Angeles Angels and the Houston Astros will play two regular-season games (May 4-5).

The Los Angeles FoodFest is scheduled for April 28-30 in the Magic Box (1933 South Broadway). Ticket details here.

The London event could tie-in with MLB’s first regular-season games in the city, the Mitel & MLB Present London Series 2019 between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox scheduled for June 29-30 in London Stadium.

As the first presenting sponsor for MLB FoodFest, Budweiser will have a Brewmaster and custom beer bar on-site for attendees 21 years of age or older.

Anheuser-Busch will also provide a recommended food and beer pairing for each of the 33 ballpark items.

As part of the events, Anheuser-Busch will introduce the Budweiser Innovation Discovery Reserve, an American Red Lager celebrating the 50th anniversary of the U.S. putting the first men on the Moon.

A MLB FoodFest merchandise shop will offer limited-edition caps, T-shirts including the Seattle Mariners Toasted Grasshoppers and the Arizona Diamondbacks Churro Dogs as well as collectibles on-site at each event. 

Each ticket — which is for a pre-designated two-hour period — includes half-size servings of the portions of those find in ball parks; soft drinks and water are complimentary.

Anyone purchasing and using a ticket that includes alcohol must be 21 years of age or older.

Ticket levels for this year’s event include:

• Standard Ticket: Eight different food items ($45) or eight different items and three beers ($60)

• MVP Ticket: 33 different food items ($75) or 33 different food items and three beers ($90)
