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.

 

Festival Calendar

New events added often, check back regularly!

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!
