3. Upgrade from game day to game weekend

Did you know you can stay overnight inside Rogers Centre? Toronto Marriott City Centre Hotel was the first hotel to be built within a major league ballpark. Spend the weekend in a field-view suite or gather a group and book one of the hotel’s private open-air Skyboxes. 

You can also catch the game from the hotel’s Sportsnet Grill, which features new menu additions this season, including Daulton Varsho’s Favourite Fried Cheese Curds and the Strikeout Stack (a hefty triple-stacked burger garnished with raclette cheese, sautéed mushrooms and all the fixings).


4. Get in on the theme-night action

Regular 2024 theme nights crank up the fun factor with giveaways, activities and entertainment. This season has 11 on deck, including Cricket Night (May 10, 2024), Country Night (May 17, 2024), Pride Night (June 14, 2024), Salsa Night (June 27, 2024) and Caribbean Carnival (July 26, 2024). Better start preparing your themed outfits now.

5. Capture IG-worthy snapshots

The Outfield District introduced five neighbourhoods last season, providing endless photo opportunities tailor-made for Instagram. Hit up TD Park Social for a selfie with the baseball mural and swings and rep your love for Toronto with a photo of the mural of the city’s neighbourhoods, which you’ll find in The Stop. 

Some of the best photo backdrops, though, are in the Corona Rooftop Patio (from the greenery wall decked out with a Toronto Blue Jays neon sign to the Toronto skyline mural).

6. Nosh on glizzies on Loonie Dogs Nights

Hot dog lovers, prepare your appetites because Loonie Dogs Nights are returning for 2024! Budget-friendly $1 hot dogs will be sold at stadium concession stands during each of this season’s 13 Tuesday home games.

7. Throw the opposing team off their game

Launched last season, the retro-style Right Field Bleachers behind the visitors’ bullpen are the perfect spot to observe the opposing team’s pitchers in action. 

8. Snag the ultimate souvenir: a home run ball!

Make this the season you catch a stray home run ball. One of the best chances you’ll get to do this is in Rogers Landing, located in right field beside the visitors’ bullpen. You’ll not only get front-row views of the rival bullpen and outfield but stray homers have been known to end up in this standing-room-only area.

9. Start a game day dance party

You’ll hear loads of music at the Rogers Centre during Jays games. Make your way from hot spot to hot spot in the stadium including Corona Rooftop Patio, TD Park Social, WestJet Flight Deck and The Stop, for live music—who knows, the catchy tunes may just inspire you to break out dancing.


10. Take a beer flight and try tasty new bites

Craft-beer connoisseurs won’t want to miss out on beer tastings while spectating. Toronto brews available in stadium include Amsterdam Brewery Boneshaker IPA, Bellwoods Brewery Jutsu Pale Ale and Blood Brothers Brewing White Lies sour ale, to name just a few.

More of a cocktail drinker? Head to The Catch Bar for handcrafted cocktails, including the ballpark’s signature drink, OK Blue Jays Rum Punch, a mix of Sprite, lime juice, simple syrup and Bacardi Blue. Bonus: it’s served in a souvenir cup you can take home! 

Also new for the 2024 season, are new menu items/future ballpark classics including the Hot Maple Bacon Hot Dog and The Stop’s supersized Jamaican patty stuffed with jerk chicken, slaw and BBQ sauce. For a fun new frothy retro treat, hit TD Park Social for the new Crush Floats, made with Crush Soda and ice cream.
