Ready to party like it’s 1997? On July 9, the MLB® All-Star Game® returns to Cleveland for the first time in more than two decades and, boy, are we glad it’s back. Here are a few tips to help you do the week right.
Tickets to the All-Star Game (or Monday night’s T-Mobile Home Run Derby®) are awfully hard to come by. Not to worry, though. Get booked and busy with plenty of other events this week:
Run, don’t walk, to this one-of-a-kind baseball spectacular. The re-imagined fan fest offers two options: paid admission to Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland or everything outside on Malls B and C for free. (Hint: all of the above.) Scoop up BOGO tickets for July 5 and achieve baller status with your crew.
Inside, expect autographs galore, photo ops with Hall of Famers and even a VR home run derby. On the Malls, scope out a concert (Twenty One Pilots and The Killers headline shows), food trucks and baseball activities. What more could a fan want?
The forecast this week looks downright pleasant, but this is still Cleveland. Temps can swing from unseasonably cool to sweltering in the blink of an eye. Grab the latest tee from Emily Roggenburk Studios, GV Art + Design or CLE Clothing Co. and show off your hometown pride in style. Comfy shoes are a must and, please, don’t skimp on the sunscreen.
Hosting the Midsummer Classic™ is a pretty big deal. Let’s not give Cleveland a black eye by breaking any rules. Prohibited items include the big stuff — weapons, alcohol, laser pointers — but also baseball bats and backpacks larger than 16” x 16” x 8”. The city’s also been named a no-drone zone all week long (looking at you, Trevor Bauer). If you’re craving an eagle-eye view of CLE, why not hop on the massive zip line at PLAY BALL PARK instead?
Two more hours to party? More than 70 local hotspots received special permission for extra-late hours during the big week, including faves like TownHall and Barley House. Enjoy the 4 a.m. last call, but stay safe by using a ride share or public transportation instead of driving.
Grab a ride share or taxi at Progressive Field on Erie Court and PLAY BALL PARK on West 3rd Street between Frankfurt and Summit. Fans also can ride RTA to the All-Star Game festivities. Park for free at any of their rail stations and enjoy service on the Red*, Blue and Green Lines, which will operate an hour after the games end.
*Due to major track projects, Red Line service from June 30 – July 13 will be replaced with 66R buses between W. 117 and West Blvd.
Cleveland’s no stranger to hosting big events, so we know a thing or two about making it easier for folks to get around during events. To that end, the city has announced some road closures and other traffic changes to ensure the best experience for everyone.
Listen, you know Cleveland can get down, and we’re blowing out this week as only this city can. There’s so much going on that there’s no way we’re going to be able to fit it all in one witty, informative, search engine-optimized article. So make sure to check out our All-Star Week planner for even more information about the amazing things happening all week.
Progressive Field is an urban ballpark in the truest sense, both architecturally and aesthetically. Built within the physical boundaries of three main...
