This ain’t no free show, buster. Festival Supreme is a ticketed event. Regular general admission tickets are $99.50 plus applicable fees. There will be a limited number of VIP tickets available at $250.

Additionally, tickets can be purchased in person at the Shrine Box Office Thursdays 12-5pm with no service fees, cash only.
OK, so what is included in a G.A. ticket?
Eight hours, more or less, of the finest comedy acts on planet Earth (really, the best in the whole damn world) on three different stages. Oh and music, there’ll be music everywhere mixed in with the comedy.
Um, no. I’m looking for a more supreme experience.
Ok pal, just for you my friend, we’re gonna sell you VIP tickets! These cost $250 and will include: VIP express entry, VIP viewing at each stage, including the 2nd floor of the Shrine’s Expo Hall, which features a private cash bar, a commemorative laminate (and boy, will you look mighty fine wearing it)
SO, I SEE THAT COSTUMES ARE ENCOURAGED. ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?
Yes, thanks for asking. Please do dress up and have fun with it, but note the following: masks, toy/replica weapons of any kind (swords, guns, handcuffs, etc) or any other part of a costume that is listed as a prohibited item will not be allowed into the venue. Please also be considerate of other guests at the show, if any part of your costume impedes or blocks the view of other guests you may be asked to remove that part of your costume or asked to relocate.

How cold does it get?
Well, it’ll be October so it could get a little nippy, requiring a jacket or a sweater. It’s always a good idea to have something to throw on just in case and you’ll look very pretty or handsome.
What happens if it rains?
If the weather history of the date October 29th is any indication, there will be a 2% chance of rain. If you’re nervous about those odds, we suggest you bring a raincoat or a pair of galoshes because this gig goes on rain or shine, sonny boy.
