Super Important Info: Read BEFORE you purchase your ticket!

Purchasing Tickets

Each person can buy up to 2 adult tickets (age 18 and above, see below for guidelines about purchasing additional tickets for minors) and 1 car pass. Both adult tickets, when purchased together, can be saved under the same name and email address. The other adult ticket must be transferred to the intended attendee before the event begins, as the name associated with each ticket must correlate to the attendee’s online waiver and legal ID. The buyer will have an option to enter a second name/email at time of purchase, or this transfer can be done at a later date. 

Important Note: If, at the time of purchase, a buyer enters the name and email of the intended attendee for the second adult ticket they purchase, the system will automatically create a new account for the second individual if one does not already exist. That second individual will then be sent an email by the system inviting them to create an account, log in, and claim their ticket.  

Constellation has an electronic ticketing and waiver system. While the ticketing site may say that you’ll see a barcode when you print your ticket, this is incorrect. You do not need to print your ticket, and if you do, there will not be a barcode. 

All tickets are sold in advance, online. No tickets will be available at the gate. 

Online Waiver

Constellation has an electronic ticketing and waiver system. You will be asked to complete an online waiver when you purchase your ticket. If you purchase a second adult ticket, complete the waiver with your information for both tickets. You must transfer the second adult ticket to the intended attendee, so that they can fill out the waiver. More information on transferring tickets can be found here: Ticket Transfers

If you purchase a ticket for a minor (aged 13-17 years), you will not be asked to complete the online waiver. Waivers for all minors will be provided in hardcopy at the Gate when you arrive. 

The information you are required to provide in the waiver is extremely important, as this is what we will use to connect you with your ticket when you show up at the gate. Make sure your First and Last name, and date of birth, matches exactly the information on whatever VALID LEGAL ID you’ll have with you when you arrive at the Gate. Also complete your full street address. 

Of note, the following forms of identification are acceptable: a driver’s license issued by a state, an identification card issued by a state, a military ID, or a passport issued by a federal government. If you do not have a legal ID with you when you arrive at the Gate, even if you have a ticket, you will not be allowed to enter the event.

Refund and Cancellation Policy.

All sales are final. No refunds or exchanges will be issued for any reason. Fees are nonrefundable. Constellation and the FirePony Creative Society are not responsible for any losses due to any personal decision to transfer your ticket to another individual. Please see the waiver for more information. 

Reserve Tickets

A select number of tickets and car passes are held for event leadership, as well as art grant recipients, to ensure the event is able to actually run and artists are able to bring their art. The number of reserve tickets and car passes varies by year and need. Reserve tickets are not available for volunteers. 

Ticket Aid Policy

Constellation has a limited number of Ticket Aid slots available for participants. Ticket Aid is awarded at either a 50% discount, based on an application provided by the participant. All applications are kept strictly confidential, initially viewed by only three members of the FirePony Board of Directors (which oversees the Constellation event). If additional discussion is required, all identifying information will be removed from the application for review. If your application is approved, you will be sent a coupon which you can apply toward one adult ticket. That ticket will not be transferable! 

Burning With Minors

While a minor is ABLE and allowed to use an adult ticket, the limit of 2 adult tickets per purchase means that a family of 4 (2 adults + 2 children, for example) would not be able to get enough tickets in a single purchase. Thus, for attendees with children aged 13-17, special minor tickets are available for purchase. These tickets are sold in mid-September, close to the event, as they are non-transferrable and non-refundable. 

There is no limit on the number of minor tickets available, and they do not count towards the total event capacity. The cost of a minor ticket is the same as an adult ticket. Again, there is nothing stopping an attendee from using an adult ticket for their minor child (aged 13-17), if they want additional flexibility to allow for potential ticket transfers. 

Children 12 and younger do not require a ticket.

For attendees under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must sign the waiver on behalf of their child. These waivers are provided in hard copy only and are available at the Gate when you arrive. A separate waiver must be signed for each minor. IMPORTANT: If the minor’s parent or guardian is not attending Constellation with the minor (eg. you’re bringing your nephews and nieces to the event), you must contact the board for additional information at
