Will Call

If you have purchased tickets to be picked up at "will call," they will be available at the WCOL Celeste Center Box Office. Because you have purchased tickets in advance, your Fair admission is still included for the day of the show. By 10 a.m. each morning, each entry gate will have a list of names of the people who have their tickets at will call. If your name is on the list, they will let you and the total number in your party of tickets purchased into the Fair at no charge. It is advised that you bring your ticket purchase confirmation just in case there are any issues. You can pick up your actual concert ticket at the WCOL Celeste Center Box Office Will Call window any time after 1 p.m. on the day of show.
