Donor Ticketing

Advance Priority Ticket Requests

Receive first notice of the 2017 season and request tickets before sales open to the general public. Beginning March 22, 2017, Ravinia contributors at the Affiliate ($500+) level and above have the opportunity to place reserved-seat ticket requests at a 20 percent discount. Please view the Donor Ticketing timeline above for donor ticket request dates at each level.

NEW THIS YEAR: FRIENDS REQUEST TICKETS LIVE ONLINE: Donors at the Friend ($300) level will be able to choose their reserved seats and receive a 20 percent discount when placing their advance ticket order. Donor ticketing at this level will occur in real time on our website from April 27 to May 1.


Ticket Fulfillment and Seating Priority

Affiliate ($500+) level and above

• Reserved seats are filled and locations assigned based on the level of your support.

• Within each level of contribution, seating is assigned according to the date your request is received by the box office.

• Additional seating priority is given to members of the Silver Circle, who have contributed annually for 25 years or more.

• For some concerts, the volume of requests from donors at higher levels is such that we cannot guarantee that all requests can be filled in their entirety.

• Tickets are not guaranteed. While we do our best to accommodate all of our donors’ requests, due to demand that often exceeds the number of seats we have to sell, we cannot guarantee tickets at any level. Historically, donors at the Marquee ($2,000+) level of support have received two priority seats to any concert for which they requested tickets, and higher levels have had access to additional tickets.

Charitable contributions to the Ravinia Festival are not refundable and do not guarantee any benefits or specific concert seating assignments at any level.
