We Are Your Official Source For Tickets

Official tickets for performances at The Pabst Theater, Riverside Theater, and Turner Hall Ballroom are available for purchase here.

Many other websites try to sell tickets without our venues’ and our artists’ authorization. They’ll use our information, logos, charts, and photos of our venues to try to trick buyers into believing that they are selling actual tickets to our shows. Unfortunately many of these sellers are unscrupulous and are not even selling valid tickets.

We never allow our tickets to be resold, and we never offer our tickets for auction. Tickets that are priced above face value are probably not valid. Please be careful when buying online – buying from pabsttheater.org guarantees that your tickets are valid.

Box Office Hours:

Pabst Theater Box Office:
Monday through Friday from noon until 6:30pm, and starting 1 hour before doors open on show nights.
Riverside Theater Box Office:
Monday through Friday from noon until 6:30pm, and starting at noon on Riverside show days.

Starting 1 hour before the doors open for the performance.
