What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There are street, surface, and garage parking options nearby. You’re on your own to figure it out.

Can we bring signs, cowbells and vuvuzelas?

No, political signs are not permitted in the theater. Or noisemakers.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, a mobile ticket is fine but registration is required. But if you’re a paper person, feel free to bring that instead of use technology.

Is the event open to media?

Yes. Interested media will need to request, receive, and present media passes. To request a media pass, please email We’re nice to media because we are media.

Are children allowed to attend?

Yes, but they need to be registered as well unless they are lap children.

Can I buy beverages and snacks, including adult beverages?

Yes. This is done by the Blumenthal staff, so it’s whatever their normal pricing and options are.

For any weirder questions, email Pause the Netflix, hold the craft beer, wait for the farm-to-table small plates and let’s get political, Charlotte!

Hurry, go grab your ticket.
