Tickets and Passes

Tickets and passes are currently available online or by phone by calling 416 732 4116, Mon – Fri 10am – 6pm.

From August 8 – 18 you will be able to purchase tickets and passes in advance from the Festival Box Office located inside the Theatre Centre at 1115 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 3T4.


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 except our fundraiser, and can be redeemed for up to two tickets per show, meaning you can bring a friend.

Quantities are limited – book today to avoid disappointment.

4-Ticket Pass: $56 (Savings of $14)

8-Ticket Pass: $108 (Savings of $32)

Pass holders will be able to book tickets to shows before single tickets go on sale, meaning you get first pick.

Your purchase will include our regular service fee ($2.50/ticket), which means you won’t have to pay any additional fees when you book your individual tickets.

Please note that passes cannot be used for in-person purchases at a Festival venue.


Single Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance.

100% of tickets for all SummerWorks shows are available for purchase in advance.
Advance tickets are available up until 3 hours before show time and can be purchased as follows:

  • Online, using the Buy Ticket link found on every show page
  • In person at the SummerWorks Festival Box Office – open August 8-18 from 12pm-8pm.

Tickets purchased in advance are subject to a convenience fee of $2.50/ticket.

The SummerWorks Festival Box Office will be located inside the Theatre Centre at 1115 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 3T4.

Any remaining tickets will be made available for sale at the performance venue starting 1 hour before show time. Venue box offices accept cash only.


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 use 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.


SummerWorks believes that anyone who wants to attend the Festival can and should be able to. We’ve kept our ticket prices low for this very reason. Join us in our commitment to financial accessibility and help us pay it forward: when you buy a ticket for yourself, top up your purchase by buying a ticket for someone else to attend the Festival for free. There’s no limit to how much we, as a community, can give.
