Box Office, Tickets & Festival Passes

The Festival's box office is operated by our partners the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. The physical location of the MAIN box office is at the front left corner of the Herbst Pavilion (Pier 2). It is marked as BX on our map HERE.

As is the way of the world, most people now purchase Festival Passes and Single Tickets on-line via our website. Listed below are several options for finding out more information on the artists performing at the Festival and obtaining tickets to their respective performances.

    • All of the artists participating in the Festival this year are listed in reverse alphabetical order HERE (this link not live yet.

    • There is a chronological breakdown with individual show dates and times in the Festival Calendar HERE.

    • All of the shows can also be reviewed by discipline (dance, music, theatre, etc.) by clicking HERE.

If you are inexplicably not satisfied with the universally accepted phenomenon of automated online customer service, over 50 years of age and / or have the audacity to want to purchase tickets by telephone (or would like information not included in our all-knowing-global-surveillance APP™), the Festival office number is 415-399-9554. Our email address is [email protected]

Similarly, the Fort Mason box office phone number is 415-345-7575 and their email address is [email protected]

During the Festival tickets and passes can also be purchased in person at the Main Box Office starting one hour prior to the first performance of the day.

NOTE: The Main Box Office is also the Venue Box Office for the Cowell Theater in Pier Two.

There are also individual box office desks at all of the other Festival venue and tickets can be purchased for shows at that venue. If you do not have a ticket and know the venue where your show will take place: GO DIRECTLY TO THE VENUE TO PURCHASE YOUR TICKET not the Main Box Office.

Starting April 1, once the Early Bird offer is over, audience members will be able to purchase Festival passes. These are the most cost-effective way to see multiple performances at the Festival.

A two-show pass for $40

When purchasing a Festival Pass there are two options:

1) Use the 10 digit code that comes with the pass to reserve guaranteed tickets for specific shows.|


2) Use the pass in a more flexible, inspired and spur-of-the-moment fashion and presenting it at the door just prior to show-time for the performances of your choice. NOTE: Festival passes are only valid until 15 minutes prior to curtain with option 2.
