How to Purchase Tickets


What is included with a PASS and what is not?

There are two passes available a Friday/Saturday/Sunday Merchant Hall Pass and a Saturday/Sunday Merchant Hall Pass. Both of these entitle the holder to attend any event held in Merchant Hall. The Friday/Saturday/Sunday pass includes the all day workshop on Friday.

Most events held in Beacon Hall (BH) are not included with the pass and must be purchased separately.

How do I know I will have a seat if I buy a Pass?

Merchant hall is a 1500 seat auditorium. Even with our largest audiences for our main events there is always plenty of room.
