Ticketing Policies, Terms and Conditions
Refunds and Exchanges
All sales are final; we do not issue refunds. Please verify all information (title, date, time, seat selection, etc.) before purchasing your tickets.
Subscribers may exchange tickets free of charge (quantity based on the type of subscription). Single-ticket holders may exchange for an additional fee ($5 per ticket). You may exchange tickets for another performance within the same season. There is an additional cost if seating upgrades apply. All exchange requests are subject to availability.
Ticket exchanges can be made by phone at 303-440-7666, in person Monday–Friday, 12–5 pm, at the Chautauqua Box Office, or through intermission on performance nights. The exchange must occur prior to 5 pm on the day of the concert.
In the event that a concert is canceled due to a pandemic, natural disaster, or other act of God, we will give you the option to refund your ticket or donate the amount to the Colorado Music Festival. Please note: Ticket service fees cover the cost of selling a ticket and are non-refundable.
Terms & Conditions
- Service fees apply to all ticket purchases.
- Treat e-tickets as you would any other valuable. Each ticket allows only one entry per scan. Any reissued ticket voids the validity of the original ticket.
- If you are unable to use tickets for an upcoming concert, you may choose to receive a donation receipt for their value. To do this, you must speak with the box office—by email, phone, or in person—no less than 24 hours prior to the scheduled concert start time.
- Resale or attempted resale of any ticket at a higher price than face value is strictly prohibited and grounds for seizure and cancellation without compensation.
- Cameras, recording devices, and other electronic devices are strictly prohibited.
By submitting your order you agree to these terms and conditions, which apply to all Colorado Music Festival ticket orders facilitated by the Chautauqua Box Office.

Tips for Ticket Buyers
Chautauqua Auditorium is accessible to individuals with disabilities. Chautauqua maintains a useful list addressing accessible parking, service animals, ADA restroom facilities, assistive listening devices, and more. Please visit the Chautauqua website for more information.
Wheelchair-accessible seating is available on the south side of the hall adjacent to section AL as well as at the back of section A. To purchase, look online for the wheelchair symbol or call the Chautauqua Box Office at 303-440-7666.
Chautauqua Auditorium is not air-conditioned. (We are so pleased that our charming and acoustically-unique venue was placed on the National Register of Historic Places; however, that designation limits the type of updates that can be made.) The temperature in the auditorium is managed with fans, swamp coolers (used before concerts and during intermission due to sound), and large sliding windows. Since we open and close these windows to manage the temperature, we can’t always get it perfect. We suggest bringing a jacket or sweater for evening performances, as the temperature can vary.
There Isn't a Bad Seat!
With the natural resonance of the Auditorium and its straightforward seating arrangement, there really isn’t a bad seat in the house.
What to Wear
You’ll see everything from shorts and sandals to khakis and button-down shirts and summer dresses, but we don’t get too fancy in Boulder. See the tip above about Temperature.
