The QR code that came with the tickets. This can be printed out or scanned from your phone. You can also bring a print out of your ticket(s). Once you are checked in, you will receive a wristband that will get you in throughout the day or weekend, depending on what type of ticket you purchased.

First off, thank you for your service. If you are currently serving in the military or were honorably discharged, YES, you qualify for a discounted ticket. The discounted tickets only apply to the service member and their immediate family. The service member who purchases the tickets must be in attendance at check in to show proof of service (which includes a Veteran ID, license showing proof of service, etc.).
– Do presales get in early?
No, but we will start scanning in presales early (at 9:00 am on Saturday), so most presale purchasers can be the first through when doors open.
– Are you selling tickets at the door?
Yes, we are! We accept cash, credit, or debit.

Unfortunately, we can’t refund or replace your wristband if you take it off or lose it. Make sure if fits snugly when it’s put on your wrist, and if not, please address it at that time.
– Where can I park? Is it free?
Yes, parking on the grounds of the Trade Mart is free but be aware that there is construction going on that has taken away some of the availability.

Yes, most do. We have posted pricing in the Guest section for those who have sent us their pricing. See link above.
