  2. Print your tickets at home and arrive early to check out the ongoing exhibits throughout Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Your reserved seat means you don’t have to wait in line!
  3. Use the #artsatUCF hashtag to join the festival live on social media.

Ticketing FAQ

When will tickets be available to the public?

Reserved seating and general admission tickets will be available on March 2 at noon.

How much do tickets cost?

Many events are free with a general admission ticket reservation. The base ticket price is $5 to reserve a seat at select performances, with some premium seats available at higher prices, depending on the event.

Tickets will be required to enter Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

The performance I wanted to attend is sold out. What do I do?

In the event that a free general admission performance is sold out, a wait line will form in the lobby of Dr. Phillips Center. If a reserved seating performance is sold out there will be no wait line, so please be sure to secure tickets early. We will do our best to release tickets as they become available so please check back on the website—something may open up.

At UCF Celebrates the Arts 2015-2019 we were able to accommodate every person in the wait lines. While we cannot guarantee that will happen this year, we can guarantee that the staffs of UCF and Dr. Phillips Center will do our utmost to get everyone safely into the performances.

Here is the wait line process:

  1. Come to Dr. Phillips Center early and check in at the ticketing table before going through security.
  2. Receive a wait line voucher from the UCF Box Office staff.
  3. Get into the designated wait line, which will be separate from the general admission patrons with reserved tickets.


Most events for UCF Celebrates the Arts 2020 will be held at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

Directions and parking instructions are available on Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts website.
