Arena Show Presale Benefit
What is the Arena Show Presale Access benefit?
Friends of the Fair presale access is a “thank you” to donors at the Fanatic level ($250) and above. The Ticket Office reserves Grandstand Seating for all Arena Shows based upon your level of membership tickets specifically for Friends of the Fair, which typically go on sale the day before the public on-sale.
How do I sign up?
To be eligible for Grandstand presale access, become a Friend of the Fair at the Fanatic level ($250) or above. To ensure that your membership is processed before the tickets go on sale, you must make your gift online by 5 p.m. two days before the public on-sale or over the phone by noon the day before the public on-sale. For example, if a show will have a public on-sale on Friday, April 10, the online deadline would be Wednesday, April 8 at 5 p.m. and the call-in deadline would be Thursday, April 9 at noon. (More details and dates will be available as shows are announced)
How do I purchase tickets?
Eligible Friends of the Fair will receive an email before the presale begins with a link to the ticketing website and your Friends of the Fair ID number. When the presale begins, click the link and you’ll be able to select and purchase tickets. You will need to enter your Friends of the Fair ID number during checkout.
What is my Friends of the Fair ID number?
Your Friends of the Fair ID number is a password that allows you to purchase your tickets during the presale. You will receive the number via email once your membership is processed by the Ticket Office. To ensure you receive this email, please add email@example.com to your safe senders list or contacts list. Occasionally this email will go to a spam folder – if you do not see it in your inbox, please check your spam folder or promotions tab (if using Gmail) as well.
Where are the seats?
Friends of the Fair presale seats vary for each Arena Show due to different contract requirements from each artist. We cannot guarantee seats in a specific area, but the Ticket Office does a great job of reserving a good mix of seats for Friends of the Fair in various locations throughout the grandstand. Friends of the Fair seating does not typically include seats in the front rows.
