Two Ticketing Options

General Admission Tickets

General Admission tickets are available on a first come, first served basis, and are not available for advance purchase.  We recommend arriving 30-45 minutes before the show to stand in line in front of the Hall, as certain times of the year are more active than others.

  • General Admission: $20 cash only
  • Senior (ages 65+), Military & Students with ID: $10 (Student discount applies to 5:00pm & 6:00pm sets only,  senior discounts apply to matinee shows only).
  • Child (5 and under): Free

“Big Shot” Reservations

Skip the General Admission line by purchasing Big Shot Reservations. You’ll be guaranteed the best available spot in the house. Big Shot Reservations are limited in quantity, so we recommend booking with haste.

  • Big Shot Reservations range from $40-$50 for all ages.



Q: Is my ticket valid for all performances?

Due to our limited capacity, your ticket is valid for only one 45-minute performance. After each show, we do a full turnover of the venue to accommodate our next group of eager guests.

Q: Can I hold spots in line?

Out of courtesy for your fellow guests in line, we ask that you do not save spots. Everyone is required to hold their own place in the General Admission line.

Q: I’m not able to make the show. Can I get a refund for my tickets?

Our standard policy states that all sales are final. Tickets are non-refundable and non-transferrable. Tickets purchased from or sales by a third party are not authorized. We reserve the right to refuse refunds based on our policy.

Q: Does Preservation Hall offer tickets for accessible seating?

Special seating options are available for persons with mobility issues and their companions and families. There are seating locations that are wheelchair-accessible, where patrons can remain in their wheelchairs or transfer to chairs. Preservation Hall has bench style seating to accommodate persons who wish to transfer from their wheelchairs.
