Dodger Stadium Events

While Dodger Stadium, which first opened its doors in 1962, is not quite the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball (Boston’s Fenway Park and Chicago’s Wrigley Field are both around a half-century older), it might be the most picturesque. Staring out across the tawny glow of the diamond and striped green of the outfield over the outfield bleachers into Los Angeles as evening descends on the city is enough to set the heart of any baseball fan aflutter. Built as a home to the Los Angeles Dodgers just a few years after they had relocated cross-country from Brooklyn, it is also the league’s largest stadium (and largest in the world, in fact!) with the capacity to host over 56,000 visitors. Along with all regular season and playoff Dodgers home games, the stadium hosts a packed calendar of events, including concerts, sporting competitions, and musical festivals like Besame Mucho. Visitors who arrive hungry will find classic food options like Dodger Dogs (though the long lines are as legendary as the food), tacos, churros, and, er, cheesecake on a stick (if you’re into that kinda thing!). Those searching for team and event merchandise including those iconic Dodgers caps will find plenty of selection at the kiosks and shops throughout Dodger Stadium.
