On April 14, the Atlanta Braves will open the 2017 season at their new home at SunTrust Park.
Want to check it out? Watching the Braves play doesn’t have to be expensive–single-game tickets start at $5, plus discount tickets are available for most Atlanta Braves games. Even better: The Braves listened to fan feedback & decided to continue the tradition of allowing folks to bring in outside food to games, making your outing even more affordable. Per the rules: You may bring in food as long as it fits inside a clear, gallon-sized plastic bag; limit one bag and one sealed bottle of water per ticketholder.
Fans of concerts & baseball get an even better deal: You’ll be treated to a free post-game concert after select games:
- June 10 vs. Washington Nationals: Post-game performance featuring Jake Owen
- August 19 vs. Washington Nationals: Post-game performance featuring MC Hammer
- September 23 vs. Washington Nationals: Post-game performance featuring Fitz & the Tantrums
FYI–If they have the same post-game concert procedures at SunTrust Park as they did at Turner Field, you can purchase cheap seats for the game & then move down for the concert.
And you can watch a fireworks display after select games during the 2017 season, including April 14 vs. San Diego Padres, May 5 vs. St. Louis Cardinals, May 19 vs. Washington Nationals, June 9 vs. New York Mets, June 16 vs. Miami Marlins, June 23 vs. Milwaukee Brewers, July 4 vs. Houston Astros, July 14 vs. Arizona D-backs, August 4 vs. Miami Marlins, August 18 vs. Cincinnati Reds, August 25 vs. Colorado Rockies, September 8 vs. Miami Marlins, September 15 vs. New York Mets, & September 22 vs. Philadelphia Phillies.
