(Safely) Experience. Wonder. Together.

We are thrilled to be able to experience live events with you. 

Our highest priority remains the health and wellbeing of all visitors to the Ordway. Following months of preparation and planning for the return of in-person programming, the Arts Partnership has updated its policies to protect against the spread of COVID-19.  

This page will be regularly updated with new safety protocols as they are announced, with guidance from the City of Saint Paul, the Minnesota Department of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Commitment to safety

We are thrilled to be able to experience live events with you. Below are the steps we are taking to ensure we operate in the safest way possible. 

COVID-19 vaccination or negative test results as well as masks are currently required to attend performances.

COVID boosters will be required for vaccinated guests starting February 1.

We require all guests to present a photo ID with proof of either full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result taken within 72 hours prior to attending an event. Starting February 1, vaccinated guests will also need to present proof of a booster shot.

The Arts Partnership has also updated its mask policy, now requiring guests to wear non-cloth masks such as N95, KN95, KF94, or surgical masks.

All guests and staff will be required to wear masks inside the venue, regardless of vaccination status, except while actively eating or drinking in the lobbies only.

Guest responsibility

We ask that guests stay home if they are sick or exposed to COVID-19. Please contact the box office to transfer your tickets to another performance, donate your tickets, or request a refund. You can contact:
