Ticket Resellers

Please be advised that any other ticketing website or outlet is not an authorized seller, or reseller, of tickets for events at the Capitol Civic Centre. Purchasing tickets outside of the Capitol Civic Centre’s website (cccshows.org) and ticketing system may result in fraudulent tickets or tickets that cannot be used for entry. The Capitol Civic Centre will not exchange or refund these tickets.

Inclement Weather

If a performance is canceled due to weather, the Capitol Civic Centre notifies local media (Seehafer News, Gannett Media) and places a notice on the Capitol’s Facebook page.

In either case, the patron who purchased the ticket will be contacted by email or phone. Anytime a performance occurs, no matter the weather conditions, a refund cannot be issued.
