FAQ

What is the ticket fee for the event? Early registration pricing is $15, and is available until September 27. On September 27th general registration pricing is $20. Ticket fee includes your access to the event and a brunch buffet.

Why do you sell tickets for this event?
As we continue to create offerings for this community, we need to be mindful of event costs and reserving the best space for the number of attendees. This registration process allows for an accurate count of attendees so we can plan accordingly.

What does my ticket fee cover?
Your ticket secures your RSVP, which includes the brunch buffet. It does not cover the entire cost of the event which runs $65-$75 per person. Berklee covers the full cost of the event.

Can I bring a guest?
Yes. Alumni may bring one ticketed guest. You can purchase a ticket for your guest at any time until the event sells out.

Am I guaranteed a seat?
Yes. We will have the seating and food stations set for the number of people who RSVP.

The event says "Sold Out" - can I still attend / can I add a guest?
Unfortunately, no. We've communicated a specific number of people to the Dream Downtown in our contract.

What about walk-ups the morning of the event?
Walk-ups and unregistered guests can not be guaranteed entrance the morning of the event.

I made a donation, does this count as my registration?
Thank you for donating! Unfortunately, no. Donations are just that, donations. If you'd like to attend the event as a ticketed guest, please purchase a ticket. If tickets are sold out, a donation does not count as entry into the event.

What if I register and then cannot attend?
We cannot offer refunds on tickets, however, it is OK to resell your tickets or give your tickets to other alumni. Please notify us of any changes by emailing Joseph Dreeszen at jdreeszen@berklee.edu
