Trust that glow sticks will be wielded, hearts broken, and vape pens smoked. Outdoor Music Festival Timber is back for its sixth year of crowd-friendly folk, rock, and pop performances, and activities like camping, kayaking, and stargazing.
The Red Sox now offer tiered ticket pricing, which means you can attend a midweek game against a less exciting AL opponent for as little as half the price of a weekend Yankees game.
Not sure half a game is worth the money? StubHub is perhaps your best option: You can score each of them a free ticket by signing them up for Red Sox Kid Nation while supplies last; the offer is capped at 25, sign-ups this year.
You go through a metal detector just to be crammed into a tiny seat for hours, but kids under 2 can sit in your lap for free. And military personnel — including active-duty, veterans, and reserves — can also buy discounted tickets if they verify their service credentials through GovX.
This invaluable fan-run service offers real photo views or 3-D renderings from almost every seat in the park and notes any partially obstructed sightlines or whether people will be walking in front of you the whole game.
For a couple of bucks more, you can buy what amounts to rain insurance and sit under the overhang in Outfield Grandstand Sections The no-booze policy is strictly enforced, and the family-friendly vibe means your kids are less likely to overhear stray F-bombs, too.
Some SRO areas along the first-base side above Infield Grandstand Sections have little ledges where you can rest a beer and your elbows. Wheelchair-accessible seating is available in the uppermost rows of many grandstand sections, the first row of the bleachers, on top of the Green Monster, and the first row of certain field boxes, among other locations.
And as a general rule, the higher up you go in Fenway — think roof deck and pavilion level — the shorter the lines should be, although your vendor options are often more limited.
Whereas Section 10, and the right-field box seats below it, are a nice value: But nearby sections and the box seats below them are perhaps the worst deal in the park. When the Kenmore Station entrance is backed up after a game, save time and sanity by crossing the street and entering through the other side of the station underpass.
Try not to mock the tourists and their flappy CharlieTickets. Scope out other nearby garages on the SpotHero or Parking Panda apps and reserve a more reasonable rate within walking distance. If you end up too far to hoof it, take a pedicab Boston Pedicab, to the park and back to your car later.
Of course, Fenway Franks, Italian sausages, chicken tenders, and other park staples are just about everywhere. Fenway has a vendor to sate almost any hankering, if you know where to look.
Belgian white ales like Blue Moon and Shock Top also Bud-owned are widely available, as are seasonal and standby brews from local craft pioneers Sam Adams and Harpoon. Instead of sulking in those expensive seats you bought them, kids can escape the heat and all that boring baseball to play video games, jump on giant foam blocks, or get their faces painted.
Could be Dwight Evans, could be a forgotten utility infielder from the s. You can also save a few bucks at the Fan Central department at CityTarget on Boylston Street, or check out the vendors selling all manner of T-shirts, hats, and other Sox gear of varied authenticity outside the park.
For example, on June 23, kids 14 and under receive a Wally beach towel, and on August 9, the first 15, fans through the turnstiles get a David Ortiz bobblehead.
Better yet, season ticket holders — or you, if you buy tickets from one of them — are welcome to watch batting practice from atop the Green Monster before games. Want to go inside the Green Monster, where hundreds of players have signed their names?
