All Homecoming events are FREE for youth ages 22 & under.*

Town Hall believes that everyone deserves access to fresh ideas, art, and conversations. We’re grateful to our friends at the Seattle Office of Arts & Culture for helping to fund this initiative for free youth tickets.

We strive to ensure that the cost of admission is never a barrier to participation. That’s why our financial model is rooted in radically affordable tickets: almost all Town Hall-produced events are just $5, and many events are free.

*Does not apply to Rental Partner events.

Beyond The Stage

There are lots of ways to get involved at Town Hall beyond the events on our stages.
Grab a drink at the Otto or take part in a pre- or post-event meetup!


Meet the Otto

The Otto is Town Hall’s bar in the Forum, open most nights 5:30PM-10:30PM. Named after longtime friend of Town Hall Otto Haas, the Otto is the perfect place to stop by before an event or pull up a chair after and enjoy drinks and conversation.

Teen Nights with TeenTix

All Town Hall-produced events (everything listed as ScienceCivics, or Arts & Culture) are now FREE for everyone age 22 and under! To celebrate free youth tickets at Town Hall, we’re inviting everyone age 13 – 19 to join us at Teen Night Receptions with TeenTix.

Come Early, Stay After

All through our Homecoming Festival, we’re hosting plenty of pre- and post-event meetups to bring our community together and keep the energy going beyond the stage. Stop by before an event or stick around after to take part!
