Season Ticket Sponsorships
We are offering season ticket sponsorships again this year. Sponsorships include two tickets to every concert, snacks and beverages and standard-height chairs reserved in the East and West Terraces. Those interested in sponsorship may contact Kathy Kane at 616-975-3177 or kkane@meijergardens.org.

Concert ticket prices can be found on our website or this previous blog post.

We want to make the ticket-buying process convenience for our members and guests. If you have any questions, email info@meijergardens.org.
