  • Gift Certificates to all hall-sponsored events are available in any denomination. Visit the Van Wezel box office or call us at (941) 953-3368, or Toll-Free (800) 826-9303. You can also purchase them online.

  • Patrons unable to use tickets to a Van Wezel-sponsored performance may donate them through the box office. Proceeds support the Van Wezel's Education and Outreach programs, which last year served over 36,000 students in Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte and DeSoto counties.

  • Always buy your tickets directly from the Van Wezel box office or from your licensed group/travel leader. There are many reasons to avoid buying from a secondhand ticket broker or scalper:

    • We cannot guarantee that your tickets are genuine.
    • You will always pay more than face value.
    • We cannot replace lost or stolen tickets.
    • We cannot contact you with information about show cancellations, time changes, road closures / traffic updates, upcoming shows or other useful pieces of information.
    • You are supporting businesses that make it more difficult for true fans to see their favorite performers without paying a premium charge.
    • None of the additional money goes to the performers or to the Van Wezel.
