This event accepts only credit card payments but offers several different ticket types. The FEE column shows you the Eventbrite service fee and/or the processing fee that you will be charged in addition to the ticket price.

This fee depends on how the event organizer set up the tickets. In some cases, you are paying the fees; in some cases, the event organizer pays the fees out of the ticket price; and in some cases, you are paying the processing fee and the event organizer is paying the Eventbrite service fee.

You will receive an email order confirmation, and your tickets will be attached in a PDF that you can print.

Note that many events promoted through Eventbrite are free to attend (and free for the organizer to promote). You still might need to “purchase” a ticket, especially if there are restrictions on the number of people allowed at the venue.

Your registration here serves as an RSVP and allows the organizer to keep or “manage” an accurate head count.
