PURCHASING TICKETS

You can purchase tickets to IMT shows five ways:

  • Securely on-line through this website (see details). Always check the Calendar page to see if a show is sold out, or if tickets will be available at the door.
  • In advance at another IMT concert.
  • By phone through the IMT voice message line. (see details)
  • At the House of Musical Traditions store in Takoma Park (see details). Tickets may not be available at the HMT store for all shows, or immediately before a show. Tickets for Weekly and Family shows are usually available at HMT.
  • And, of course, at the door on the day of the concert. Prices at the door are usually somewhat higher than for tickets purchased in advance.
Tickets purchased online or by phone will be held for pickup at the show.

There is a $2 per ticket box office fee on all ticket purchases, except advance purchases at concerts, that goes directly to IMT to help pay the costs we incur running our box office.

Before the start of each concert season, we will often reduce or waive the box office fee for several weeks, so that you may purchase tickets for a number of shows at a lower rate.

Please note that advance ticketing for evening concerts usually ends by 1 pm on the day of the concert. Advance ticketing for daytime events usually ends the evening before the event. In some cases online ticketing may remain open later. Check the concert listing for the latest information.

Phone Orders

PERMISSION TO APPEAR IN VIDEO

IMT produces video of many of its concerts. Anyone who attends an IMT show gives his or her consent to appear in an IMT video of that show.

LATE ARRIVALS

Tickets not picked up within 15 minutes after the listed start time of show may be released for other patrons. If you know you're going to be late and want us to hold your tickets, contact us before 1:00 pm by email at orders@imtfolk.org or by phone at 301-960-3655 (960-FOLK).

ACCESS & ACCOMMODATION

The facilities that IMT uses meet ADA requirements for physical accessibility. If you or a member of your party requires any accommodation to participate in an IMT activity, please let us know in advance. Ticket orders are often not processed until the day of the concert, so please send a separate email to office@imtfolk.org.
