If you need accessible seating at any of our events, we highly encourage you to secure that in advance because space can fill up quickly!
The best way to secure accessible seating is by purchasing an ADA seat online at www.TheMagnoliaSanDiego.Com or www.Ticketmaster.com. Look for the ADA icon on the ticket purchase screen. Up to one companion seat is allowed.
If you’ve already purchased non-ADA tickets, you can inquire about ADA accommodations by:

Please contact us in advance to let us know what kind of accommodation you will need.
