What’s New This Year?
The new cultural and identity celebrations include: Women’s Celebration, Polish, Disability Pride, and India. “For themes, we have some exciting additions: Cocomelon, Indiana Jones, XSet, Yellowstone, and Harry Potter,” Pollio reveals. The team added new themed experiences for 2023. Pollio explained, “Additionally, we look to expand on some of our yearly events, such as adding a Mechanical Bull and games to our Taco and Tequila Fest, and an awesome tie-dye Red Sox jersey for Jerry Day.”
XSet will take place on July 5th vs. the Rangers. You can purchase a special XSet ticket which includes a designed jersey. As for Harry Potter day, it will be on September 9th vs. the Orioles. A custom hat will be available, too.
