Padres announce 2023 FanFest date
Padres will stage FanFest on Feb. 4, a kickoff party ahead of spring training
Save the date: The Padres will stage their annual FanFest on Feb. 4.
The team has not announced details beyond the date, their first traditional pre-season celebration for fans since 2020.
The pandemic wiped away the 2021 celebration and last year’s lockout made FanFest an Opening Day watch party as the Padres opened the season in Arizona.
This year’s version of the event — which typically includes player appearances, on-field activities and Q&As — will again be a kickoff event ahead of spring training.
Players around the game begin reporting for spring training the week of Feb. 13, with the Cactus League opener against the Mariners in Peoria set for Feb. 24.
Opening Day is March 30 at Petco Park against the Colorado Rockies.
