If you want to try the best food from all 30 MLB ballparks, this event is for you

Major League Baseball is giving you another opportunity to taste the most unique ballpark foods from all 30 stadiums in one place. Yep, MLB FoodFest is back and this time it’s returning to New York City.

First launched last year, MLB FoodFest is built for the Instagram generation and is meant to capitalize on all the mouth-watering (but sometimes wacky) foods that are available in modern MLB stadiums.

That means everything from Toasted Grasshoppers (that’s the Mariners’ entry) and Rocky Mountain Oysters (Thanks, Rockies) to more common fare like the Boston Red Sox’s Hot Lobster Roll or the Marlins’ Chicken & Bubble Waffle.

It’s happening Sept. 21 and 22 on Fifth Avenue near Bryant Park. Last year, the NYC event sold out in just 48 hours, which suggests this will be a hot ticket again. Since then, MLB launched a L.A. edition of FoodFest and plans to have another in London.

Tickets are on sale as of Thursday morning at mlb.com/foodfest. They cost $35 (includes sample-sizes of all 30 items) or $50 (all 30 items plus three beers).

Here’s a full rundown of the menu for the NYC event:

From last year’s NYC event, only four items are duplicates and they’re the four most popular – the Seattle’s Toasted Grasshoppers, the Pittsburgh Pirates’ Pulled Pork Pierogie Hoagie, Boston’s Hot Lobster Rolls and perhaps the most gawked at food in MLB: the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Churro Dogs.

One new addition this year: MLB is also bringing out its Home Run Derby Virtual Reality game. Because nothing is better than trying to mash dingers in VR after you’ve just smashed a Frito Pie Corndog in real life.
