Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
All attendees must be 21 or older. We will be checking IDs at check in.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
As the saying in Columbia goes after the semester ends, "the students are gone!" Thus parking should be in abundance. There are options for metered street or garage parking throughout downtown, all options are free after 6 p.m. In addition, the Tiger Trolley will be making a loop to all the participating venues, and patrons are free to hop on and hop off!
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
For questions, please call the city's Office of Cultural Affairs at 573-874-6386 or email OCA@GoColumbiaMo.com
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
For a fast check in experience, if you purchase an advanced ticket, please bring that with you to the event. When you check in to one of the six gallery locations, you will be given a wristband to get in to all other venues. If you do not purchase an advance ticket with Eventbrite, it will be $20 (cash or check) at the door.
What is the refund policy?
Sorry, no refunds. You are more than welcome to donate your ticket to a friend!
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
Not a problem!
