Cain Park ticket office residents day is June 1
The Cain Park ticket office opens to Cleveland Heights residents on Saturday, June 1, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., for the sale of tickets to the 2019 season from a specially held block of seats. The ticket office will open to the general public on Tuesday, June 4, noon to 9 p.m.
Residents need to bring a photo ID and two proofs of current residency (e.g., mail, utility bill, current CH Rec ID) to register with staff outside the main ticket office. After registering, each resident will get a number that represents his or her place in the ticket-buying queue. Or, residents can fill out a ticket-order form and leave it with staff to be filled at the end of the day, if seats are still available.

Cain Park is partnering again with The Wine Spot for this season’s Wine Tastings, starting with “American Blends” on the opening night of "Ragtime," June 14, and running through August. Call the ticket office (216-371-3000) to buy tasting tickets ($10 per person), or go online to Ticketmaster. Last year’s wine tastings sold out, so purchasing tickets in advance is strongly suggested.
This year, the free parking shuttle will run for all evening ticketed events. Ticket holders can park at Cleveland Heights City Hall (40 Severance Circle), and take the shuttle to the park. The shuttle will operate beginning one hour before, and up until, a performance begins, and up to one hour after the performance ends.
