I’ve said this before, but it’s always a fun event for everyone involved. There are numerous exhibits, booths, clinics, merchandise sales, and of course an opportunity to get autographs and meet-and-greets with your favorite current and former Orioles. Needless to say, my personal opinion is that it’s well worth the $12 admission price.

The timing is a bit curious this year, as normally they hold it in the end of January or beginning of February. However I would also say that’s almost the exception as opposed to the rule. I know for a fact that the Nationals hold a similar event around the same time of year. The Red Sox also have a winter caravan type of event that’s held near Christmas, so maybe it’s just an issue of the Orioles “adjusting to the market.”

I suppose my reasoning for bringing up the early date is because December 12th feels almost like the season just ended. I think that January is a much better time given the fact that spring training is set to begin the following month and so forth. But regardless of when it is, Orioles FanFest is a great time for all involved. It’s also a time honored tradition in Baltimore. So if you’ve never been, this is your chance!
