As a benefit of supporting the not-for-profit Ravinia Festival, donors receive early access to tickets for the summer season.


Ticketing Tips for 2022

Order Online

Visit the performance schedule to access individual events’ info and ticketing pages. Each page includes separate buttons for the available ticket options for the performance. Buttons only appear when the event is on sale. A Ravinia account is required for purchasing tickets. Ravinia donors must be logged in to the account associated with their donation in order to see buttons during their early ticketing period.

Buy In Person / Will Call

Ravinia has two different box office locations, open during the hours listed below at different times of the year, for walk-up ticket sales or Will Call ticket pickup.

On performance dates, limited parking is available until 1 hour before scheduled park opening time, when Ravinia parking lots open. At that time, visitors must use the West Parking Lot, which may require a parking fee.

BGH Box Office (open only on BGH series event dates)
Parking is available in the South Parking Lot, adjacent to Bennett Gordon Hall.
