The 500 Attendee Cap

Only 500 passengers can comfortably fit in the new "time-traveling ballroom" at the Hyatt Regency Aurora before the flux capacitor begins to malfunction.

What does that mean?  Well...based on the past 2 years of ticket sales, we're expected to sell out BEFORE online registration closes.  Also...I time traveled to Saturday night of SwingTime 2018 and the ballroom is packed!  With that said, we can't guarantee we'll be offering event passes at the door.

But....what about day/evening/spectator/chaperone passes? 

We plan on offering spectator and chaperone passes for $20 per day at the door.  However, we likely won't be offering day/evening passes if online registration sells out before the event.  If by chance, the future gets changed, and we still have space available....then yes, we'll offer weekend/day/evening passes at the door.  But if we sell out of all 500 passes, then no we won't.

In fact, at the time that I write this [4/27/18], 25% of the hotel block is already sold for the weekend and we are just NOW opening ticket sales.  Everyone is super excited about the changes we've made.  🙂 Don't be a "should-a, could-a, would-a" and get your SwingTime Event Pass before it sells out!!
