Do programs change or get cancelled?

All programs and artists are subject to change. If one of our events is canceled or postponed, we will notify you via email. In the event of a program cancellation, you can receive a refund or exchange your ticket for another show on the same season. In the event of a rescheduling, you can exchange your ticket for the new date; if you are unable to make the new date, you can exchange for a different performance on the same season. Refunds will be on a case-by-case basis.

What should I wear to a performance?

Santa Fe is a casual town and there is no set dress code. Most people wear clothing that is appropriate for a cocktail party or business casual. We ask that you refrain from wearing strongly scented products and be mindful of clothing, jewelry, and accessories that make noise.

When should I arrive and where can I park?

Parking varies by venue. We recommend arriving 30 minutes prior to any scheduled event start time to park and locate your seat. For additional information, contact our Box Office at (505) 984-8759.

What if I arrive late to the performance?

We will do our best to get you into the performance at the earliest appropriate break in the program to minimize disruption.

What if I can’t make it to the show?

Once tickets have been purchased, there are no refunds. Only subscribers and Annual Fund members at the Director Level and above may exchange their tickets for another performance. If you are unable to use your tickets, you may donate them back to Performance Santa Fe as a tax-deductible contribution.
