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:
- The Des Moines Civic Center Ticket Office
- The Des Moines Performing Arts website
- Call (515) 246-2300
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.

“The dollar ticket price [for the Applause Series shows] is unbelievable. Without it, we would't be able to come. The people who support this program need to be applauded because it gives kids great opportunities.”
