Celebrate The San Diego Padres Petco Park Opening Weekend At The 7th Annual East Village Block Party | Enter To Win The Ultimate Opening Day Experience

March 11, 2017

The East Village is stepping up to the plate again for the 7th Annual East Village Opening Weekend Block Party on Friday, April 7, from 10am to 6:30pm & Saturday, April 8, from 11am to 7:30pm. This free-to-attend, family-friendly event will take over J Street between 6th & 10th Avenues to commemorate the start of the San Diego Padres 2017 season! To celebrate, we are raffling off the ultimate opening day experience - 2 tickets to the April 7 game against the San Francisco Giants and drink tickets for the block party!

The 2017 Petco Park season opener ballgame will feature the San Diego Padres as they play host to the San Francisco Giants. Tickets for the ballgame must be purchased separately but whether you make it into the game or not, the Opening Weekend Block Party will be the place to be to show off your team spirit and send the Padres into a season of success.

Root, root, root for the home team as you rock out to live entertainment from local bands and DJs and "Swing batter, swing!" as you test your skills in the East Village Opening Weekend Block Party's interactive game zone. A day out to the ballgame would not be complete without creative beverages, so quench your thirst at the craft beer garden featuring local beer and baseball-themed cocktails. East Village restaurants and food trucks will line the streets to satisfy your hunger and get you ready for the games.

The whole family can enjoy the Opening Weekend Day Block Party where there is fun to be had for all ages. Bring the kids and get them in the spirit with baseball themed games, jump houses, a rock wall, and other hands on activities. Live music will be playing throughout the day, including a headlining set by Caliber - San Diego's top rated dance band.
