SAFE TICKET BUYING

When purchasing tickets to any event at the Civic Center, Stoner Theater, or Temple Theater event, customers should only use the following methods to guarantee valid tickets and seating:

Des Moines Performing Arts cannot guarantee the authenticity of tickets purchased from any other reseller (such as brokers or individuals).

Please be aware of "second party vendors" who often sell tickets online at rates more than double the standard price. Tickets bought through these sources may not be valid and you would be refused admission without refund.

To avoid being accidentally redirected to a second party vendor when online do not use search engines or links to find our official website.  Rather, type DMPA.org into your browser’s address bar, ensuring you reach our official website.
