  • If using the online form to sign up as a sponsor or for advertising, please purchase separately from any individual admissions to the event, as our system cannot handle a combined order.
  • If purchasing a sponsorship, please fill in the attendee names and meal choices, but do not select a type of admission. The radio buttons for type of admission are only for individual admission purchases, which must be made via a separate transaction.
  • If you accidentally select a sponsorship or advertising option but intended to make a purchase of individual admissions to the event (or intended to purchase a sponsorship or advertising and accidentally clicked on one of the admission type buttons), please refresh this page to clear out an inadvertent selection.
  • If you are using the online form to purchase individual tickets, you must select a type of admission for each admission being purchased, in order to be charged the appropriate amount for your order. Orders that fail to be charged the appropriate amount will be canceled.
