ROUND ROCK, TexasRound Rock Express Fan Fest, presented by Intel, is set to return to Dell Diamond on Saturday, March 23! Fans of all ages are invited to the ballpark from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. to help celebrate the start of the 2024 baseball season. The free event is open to the public and includes family-friendly fun for all fans.

As we celebrate the kickoff to the 2024 campaign, Fan Fest allows the community to get back into the baseball spirit by enjoying a day of entertainment. Attendees at this year’s Fan Fest can play catch in the outfield, test out their skills on an inflatable bull, take some swings in the state-of-the-art Home Run Dugout, head down to the field and grab a photo with Spike and experience many more activities throughout Dell Diamond. The Railyard Team Store will also be open for fans looking to get their hands on the newest Express merchandise. Attendees can scope out the best available seat locations for their season memberships with full season and fireworks plans available.

RS3 Strategic Hospitality will also be debuting new menu items at storefronts around Dell Diamond. A few of the newest additions to the culinary lineup include the Moa Bowl at Ono Pacific Grill, which features chicken tenders tossed in mango habanero sauce and topped with sesame seeds alongside tater tots. Fans will be able to get their first taste of the new red velvet or s’mores milkshakes at Fairlane’s Diner. The Boomstick will be located at Goodstock 123 on the first base line and will certainly be a fan favorite in 2024. This foot-long hot dog is covered in chili and queso and is topped with french onion crisps and red jalapenos. Over at Cork and Barrel, fans can try the new beer battered fish and chips. More new food items will be announced prior to Opening Day.

The Express are also proud to partner with the Round Rock Area Serving Center to host a donation drive during Fan Fest. Those who are able to donate are asked to bring donations of non-perishable food items. Items can be dropped off at the Home Plate Gate.
