There may be per-order ticket limits established by concert promoters or show producers for some events. These limits will appear on the specific event page and must be adhered to. ADA seating is available for all concerts. All requests for wheelchair accessible seating must be made during regular business hours, at time of ticket purchase, by calling the ArtsQuest Center Box Office or visiting any ArtsQuest Box Office including the ArtsQuest Center, Banana Factory, Bethlehem Visitor Center at SteelStacks and Musikfest’s Sands Steel Stage Box Office.

If an event is canceled, ArtsQuest will post this information on the website and/or contact ticketholders, and provide a full refund for the amount that was paid for the ticket. Shipping and service fees are NOT refundable. Patrons with printed tickets (not print at home) must return tickets back within fourteen (14) days of the announced cancellation to receive the refund. If an event is postponed or rescheduled, the ticket will be honored for the rescheduled event date. New tickets will not be reissued for most rescheduled or postponed events. Inclement weather for any outdoor performances or events is not cause for a refund unless a performance or event is actually cancelled. A performance that has begun, but is shortened due to severe weather conditions, is not cause for a full or partial refund.
ArtsQuest tries to maintain the lowest fees possible for all transactions, while offering the best possible ticketing system and purchasing experience possible for our customers. These fees pay for the expenses associated with operating our our ticketing department, ticketing company partnership, the construction of our 6,500 seat venue for the festival each year, as well as the City of Bethlehem’s Amusement tax which is detailed in the following sections. Below is language that describes our fee structure for most performances. ArtsQuest reserves the right to change this at any time.
