Tickets and Passes


NEW THIS YEAR – PAY WHAT YOU DECIDE

SummerWorks has always been committed to affordable ticket prices as a way of ensuring access and allowing our audiences to experience multiple shows during the Festival. However, an affordable price doesn’t always recognize the investment of time, talent, and resources that artist make in their work. That’s why we’re introducing a Pay What You Decide ticket option for every show in the Festival.

What does this mean? In addition to our usual $15 ticket, $25 and $35 tickets are also available – you pick whichever suits your budget. All tickets are general admission, and there are no limits on any price level.

Why would you do this? Because even at $35 you are getting more than your money’s worth and 70% of the ticket price goes directly to the artists. This is a way for people to increase their support for Festival artists while ensuring financial accessibility for those who need it. In addition to ticketed performances, there are also a number of shows and events that are either free or by donation.

PASSES

Passes are the best way to experience the Festival, as they give you flexible options for seeing multiple shows for the lowest price. Passes are valid for any SummerWorks performance and can be redeemed for up to two tickets per show, meaning you can bring a friend.

LONG WEEKEND PASS
This year, the opening weekend of the festival falls on the August Long Weekend. Skip the traffic to cottage country and the crowded beaches, and get a Long Weekend Pass. This 3-Show Pass is our least expensive pass and can be redeemed for performances during the long weekend (August 5 – 7).
