FAQs + Guidelines

  • What players, coaches and alumni will be scheduled to appear?

    Maps with specific names and locations will be distributed upon entry to FanFest; player autograph schedules will not be announced in advance. All participants are subject to change without notice.

  • What time do I need to be at this event to ensure I get an autograph?

    Multiple autograph stations will take place throughout the day. Autographs are on a first-come, first-serve basis and are not guaranteed. Depending on the scheduled players, coaches and alumni, length of lines fluctuate. Only a limited number of autographs will be able to be completed within the period of time specified, so please plan accordingly when determining your arrival time.

  • Will I be able to take pictures with the players?

    We will have two designated photo stations specifically for photographs on your own camera or phone. Please bring your camera or phone with you to this event if you'd like a photo. We will not have a photographer present. At designated autograph stations, photographs will not be allowed to ensure that we can accommodate as many fans as possible for autographs.

  • Are there "kid-only" events?

    For the youngest fans in Braves Country, a Kids Reading Room will be set up in the 755 Club. During the day, youth 14 and younger can take part in a kids-only press conference, interact with the Home Depot tools and attend a book reading with a Braves player.

  • Is there a charge for FanFest?

    FanFest is a free event! There will be limited concessions and merchandise available for sale, as well as a "Yard Sale" event to benefit the Atlanta Braves Foundation.

  • How many autographs can I get per player and are there any restrictions on the items I can bring?

    A strict policy of one (1) item per player, coach or alumni is enforced. Although there is not a published list of restricted items, it is up to the discretion of the player, coach or alumni on what items they will and will not sign.

  • Can I drop off someone to hold my place in line and return later?

    Fans will be asked to stay in their place in line once they arrive. If fans leave, they will be asked to rejoin the end of the line upon their return. There will be no saving spots for any others in line.

  • Important Autograph Guidelines

    • One (1) autograph per person per player, coach or alumni.

    • No holding spaces in line for other fans.

    • Due to limited time, we ask that you refrain from taking photographs with players, coaches or alumni at autograph stations. Two designated photo stations will be available at other locations during this event.

    • Please plan accordingly: Depending on location and player schedule, lines vary in length. In general, please plan to arrive early. Autographs are on a first come, first serve basis.

    • We politely request that autograph dealers refrain from attending these fan events. Access will be at the discretion of representatives of the Atlanta Braves. Known autograph dealers may be refused access.
