The Toronto Blue Jays are back for more high-flying action for the 2024 season! It’s always a fun time to see a game at the Rogers Centre, so make the most of your time and money with our Guide to Family Tips and Updates for the 2024 Toronto Blue Jays Season. Play ball!

Rogers Centre Renovation

  • The big news for the 2024 season is the renovation of the 100 level seats, complete with cup holders (finally!) and a directed view toward home base, even way down the sidelines.
  • This addition follows last year’s extremely popular massive overhaul of the outfield areas, which includes more food and entertainment areas, plus more ways to get close to the action through raised bullpens and the Rogers Landing open viewing areas.
  • Families will definitely want to check out Park Social with hang-out spots and games for all ages, the renovated WestJet Flight Deck, and The Stop behind the batter’s eye on Level 100 which has new food options. On date nights, adults will want to cozy up to the bars at Corona Rooftop Patio and The Catch Bar.
  • All outfield districts are available to seat-holders but if you just want to hang out in the new areas, you can purchase separate tickets for $20 each, which is a great idea for kids who can’t sit still!

Jr. Jays Sundays & Giveaways

  • Jr. Jays Sundays program is back for the 2023 season starting April 30, with activities on Jr. Jays Zones located on the 100, 200 and 500 levels including Park Social. Then, from June 11 to August 27, the party goes outside with games and inflatables, beginning at 10:30 a.m. up until first pitch.
  • Kids 14 and under can run the bases after the game, on Jr. Jays Sunday games only.
  • There’s also a free downloadable program on the Blue Jays website called the Fan Pack and kids activities on the ACE’s Clubhouse page.
  • Join the free Jr. Jays Club to receive 50% off tickets to Jr. Jays Tickets for all Saturday and Sunday home games, access to run the bases and the Club Hub, and more. Plus, you can purchase an All-Star Membership which includes added merchandise, badge challenges and first access to running the bases.
  • Also back in full force are the popular promotions & events days, where you can pick up a souvenir upon entry, including Blue Jays-themed hats, novelties, and even jerseys! Be aware that supplies are quite limited. Make sure to arrive early as dedicated fans line up before the doors open (usually 90 minutes before game time).
  • However, there are sometimes Specialty Tickets available, such as the Hello Kitty Night on April 26, where you automatically receive an Elmo bobblehead with your ticket, which is great for families with young children who can’t comfortably wait in a long line.

Money-Saving Tips & Tricks

  • Unlike most sports venue, bringing in outside food to the Rogers Centre *is* allowed, as long as it’s wrapped or contained. It must be small enough to fit under the seats, as per their bag policy. Non-alcoholic drinks in plastic bottles under 600ml are also okay.
  • Some foods are expensive (particularly alcohol) so head to the Dugout Deal Menu locations in Sections 239 and 536, which offer kid-sized and affordable options, such as popcorn, soft-serve ice cream, nachos and hot dogs.
  • Loonie Dogs Nights are always a popular option where, as the name suggests, you can get one of their delicious hot dogs for just $1 (limit of 4 hot dogs per transaction)
  • Bring a reusable water bottle and re-fill it at water fountains located near the washroom entrances around the concourse. (100-Level: near Sections 101, 115, 125, 143; 200-Level: near Sections 207, 219, 229, 241; 500-Level: near Sections 507, 517, 521, 531, 541)
  • Grab a cheap pre-game lunch or dinner before the game. There are fast-food options along Bremner Boulevard and at the new Union Station food court, an easy walk to the Rogers Centre.
  • 500 level and 200 level outfield seats are the best deal, unless you or your kids are desperate to see the jumbotron. Plus you might catch a home run ball!
  • A tip for those sensitive to the sun: for matinée games on hot weather days, the shadiest spots are on the third baseline and outfield, particularly in the upper rows of the 100-Level, lower rows of the 500-Level, and throughout the 200-Level.
