Show organizers have created a series of special weekday and weeknight promotions..


Buy a ticket at the Qwest Field box office for only $8 (that’s $4 off) starting at 5 pm on Monday through Thursday, and then enjoy guest appearances, giveaways and promotions each evening.

Need More Time?
For many, an afternoon or evening at the show is simply not enough time to take the BIG show in. For those folks, show organizers have come up with the new 5-Day BIG Show Pass for only $24 (includes one day free parking). This allows showgoers to take it all in at their leisure and come back again and again and again. The best strategy: park at Qwest Field, take the free shuttle to South Lake Union, browse the on-the-water and shoreside displays, refuel by enjoying a free appetizer at Joey’s, Chandler’s Crabhouse or Daniel’s Broiler (simply show admission wristband or hand-stamp) then head back to Qwest Field for more fun.
