Can I bring food into the Petco Park?

Is Outside Food Allowed in 2023?

Yes, you are now allowed again to bring in outside food into the stadium for San Diego Padres games.

Why This Is A Good Policy

Bringing in your own food is a great way to save a few bucks. It helps accommodate children who may not be too keen on sharing your garlic fries. There’s no need to wait in line at concession stands. Lawn seating was designed with picnicking in mind. And it can be healthier to eat, especially if you are vegetarian, vegan or gluten intolerant.

Outside Food Policy

Here are the rules & restrictions for bringing in your own food to Padres games at Petco Park:

  • Food items must be for individual consumption only. (Don’t bring the Costco size bag of chicken breasts for your entire row)
  • Food items must be wrapped, bagged, or in a container, which must be soft-sided and comply with Petco Park bag policies.
  • Food that might be thrown (i.e., oranges, apples) must be sliced in advanced (and still must not be thrown)

What About Beverages

Yes you can bring bottled water.

Most Popular Items to Bring In

Observationally, burritos from Lolitas. Also people seem to like to make pit stops at nearby 7-11.

Note: At Petco Park you are able to leave the stadium mid-game and return.
