All tickets are non-refundable.  Exchanges may be available for a different performance of the same production.  Exchange fees may apply.  Call 479.443.5600 for more information.

If you are unable to attend your event, you are also able to donate the value of your tickets to Walton Arts Center.  You may make a donation up until 2 hours prior to show time.

Inclement Weather Policy

It is rare for a performance at Walton Arts Center to be canceled due to inclement weather, but in the case that a show is canceled, we will post information on our website, social media and phone system and will make every effort  to contact all affected ticket holders.

If the performance is still scheduled but inclement weather makes it impossible for you to attend, please contact the Box Office at (479) 443-5600.  Our ticket representatives will help you consider all the options.  Due to contracts with performers and production companies, options for day-of show exchanges vary and we may not be able to exchange tickets.  All ticket donations or exchanges need to be completed at least two hours before the performance, and tickets are non-refundable.

Group Discounts

Whether you're a tour guide or travel agent organizing a tour of Northwest Arkansas attractions or a group of friends planning a night on the town, we can provide special ticket prices for you.

Infant Friendly Events

Many events at Walton Arts Center are specifically designed for families and we encourage you to enjoy these events with your children. For performances marked as an Infant Friendly Performance, children UNDER two years of age and seated on a parent's lap may enter the theater without a ticket. Children two years and older must have a ticket to attend any event.

For performances that are NOT marked as an Infant Friendly Performance, children of all ages (including babes-in-arms) will need to have a ticket purchased beside their parents. 

For events not specifically geared for young audiences, parents are asked to use discretion when bringing children. If children are disruptive to other patrons during a performance, parents may be asked to leave the theater with their child.  Monitors are available in the lobby so you can watch the show with your children until they are ready to go back into the quiet atmosphere of the theater. 

Parental Guidance

Some shows may contain mature content, language or themes. As a parent, you are the only person qualified to determine what is appropriate for your child. To help you make an informed decision, we encourage you to seek additional information. If you still have questions, email us and we'll try to help.

PLEASE NOTE: No one admitted under the age of 13 without a parent or guardian

Latecomers

We attempt to begin all performances on time as indicated on your ticket. Latecomers will be seated at the discretion of the house manager, based on the specifications of the performance company.

Protect yourself from ticket fraud

For most events presented by the Walton Arts Center or for which the Walton Arts Center sells tickets, the Walton Arts Center Box Office is the only authorized source for tickets. Ticket resellers may sell one ticket many times. Sometimes people who buy tickets through ticket resellers arrive at the performance and find that their tickets cannot be used. We do everything we can to prevent ticket fraud, and strongly discourage our patrons from purchasing tickets through ticket resellers or third parties. If you have any questions, we encourage you to call the Box Office at (479) 443-5600 before you buy.

Ticket resellers: Please note that we will quarantine any orders placed by suspected resellers, and may require additional information before releasing any quarantined orders. Walton Arts Center reserves the right to cancel orders placed by suspected ticket resellers. 

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
