Major League Baseball All-Star FanFest is an interactive baseball theme park and the largest baseball fan event in the world. Visiting St. Louis, MO for the first time ever in 2009, Major League Baseball All-Star FanFest features activities and exhibits for families and fans of all ages. The event will be held at the America's Center in St. Louis.

Now in its 19th year, Major League Baseball All-Star FanFest will transform America's Center into a celebration that captures the thrills and excitement of Major League Baseball. Major League Baseball All-Star FanFest will feature interactive exhibits and attractions, Major League clinics and seminars, free autograph sessions with Cardinals legends and Hall of Famers, memorabilia and much more.

They now have 10-20,000 people a day who come to the show. This year's events will be July 10-14, 2009 (9am-8pm each day) and the lines for attractions are long. They like to hire local strolling bands and performers to entertain the folks waiting in line. They do not have stages or PA systems, so they look to hire musical acts that can stroll or that are stand alone. Performers will be compensated for their performances.

Show Hours:

  • Friday, July 10: 9:00 AM-8:00 PM

  • Saturday, July 11: 9:00 AM-8:00 PM

  • Sunday, July 12: 9:00 AM-8:00 PM

  • Monday, July 13: 9:00 AM-8:00 PM

  • Tuesday, July 14: 9:00 AM-6:00 PM

They are looking to book two musical acts each day for a three hour shift (with breaks). It's a morning shift and a late afternoon, no one past 7:30 PM. They already have traditional Jazz/Dixieland already, so it would be encouraged to submit if you have more of a contemporary sound.

There are a lot of baseball fans (10-20,000 each day), a lot of media, and lots of celebrities. Its a fun show - lots of exposure. Artists can discreetly hand out cards but cannot sell CD's; signs will be provided with band URL's. They will consider one time performances or even a band taking all five performance days.
