Tickets for POrtalBurn 2017 will go on sale on April 20, 2017 at 4:20pm eastern. There will be 420 tickets available.
The ticket price is $50. This is a $10 increase from the previous three years. The POrtalBurn BOD is committed to keeping ticket prices reasonable and within reach for all participants in our community. We believe the $50 ticket price is necessary, and still achieves that goal. The key factors driving the increase in ticket price include…
• Based on community feedback, we need more POrtal potties.
• In 2016 we added a day to the event – opening gates on Thursday instead of Friday. We did not increase ticket prices at that time, but as a result we did incur additional costs. We need to factor that in now.
• We desperately need website development, and will be putting a call out to the community to find assistance with that effort. We anticipate there will be costs associated with this undertaking.
• As a responsible Board of Directors, we must ensure that POrtalBurn has funds in reserve to cover unforeseen catastrophes. At this time, the reserve funds are insufficient to protect the organization. The community has demonstrated we have something special with POrtalBurn and we anticipate longevity, so we need to build the reserve fund to ensure our continued success.
Tickets will be sold via Brown Paper Tickets HERE. There will be a small service charge. There will be no tickets sold at the gate. Children 12 and under will not require a ticket. There are no tiers – all tickets will be released when ticket sales open. As before, all BOD members, Leads, and Art Grant Recipients will have reserve tickets to ensure they are able to participate, and will be provided with a reserve code to use when purchasing their ticket. There are no comp tickets for POrtalBurn.
POrtalBurners… mark your calendars!
