UPDATE: Dear Birchmere Friends,
Thanks again for bearing with us in these unprecedented times. We are still working with all our artists & their teams, to reschedule as many dates as possible.

All shows from 3/20 – 5/1 have now been Postponed, with new dates TBA. Visit our Tickets/Calendar page for an updated list of rescheduled/canceled/postponed shows. Once a date IS officially rescheduled, you will be able to use your ticket for the new date or a refund will be available, but please wait until a new date is announced to request a refund. We are working closely with our ticketing company Ticketmaster, to get notifications out as fast as possible. Note that our box office will be closed for the time being, so hold on to tickets purchased in person at our Box Office, and we’ll take care of those when we reopen.

Ticketmaster has created a Help Center to provide fans guidance about what to do in the case that an event is cancelled or being rescheduled. You can also see a full list of event updates here. Be sure to check back regularly for additional information.

In addition to holding on to your previously purchased tickets, we encourage you to check out our schedule for the future, and buy some tickets!
