How it works: Charleston-area residents on the Festival’s mailing list will be sent a promotional code via email to use online at spoletousa.org from 8 am on March 7th to 11:59 pm on March 8th. Residents not on the Festival’s list can create a new account at this link. Specially priced tickets can also be purchased in person (no code required) at the Spoleto Festival USA offices located at 14 George Street, on Saturday and Sunday from 1 pm to 5 pm.
On Sunday, March 8th, as part of Second Sunday on King Street, the public is invited to visit the Festival’s information table (on the corner of King and George streets) from 1 pm to 5 pm. Second Sunday visitors will receive a promotional code to use online that day, or they can walk a short distance to the Festival offices to purchase tickets in person until 5 pm.
