Closing Ceremony **

Rotary Stadium


* The Opening Ceremony is a general admission event (no reserved ticketing). The venue has limited capacity for spectators. We will try to allow as many family and friends and public as possible into the Ceremony but, with over 3200 participants in the Games, it leaves a limited capacity in the building for spectators and we cannot guarantee that you will get a seat. The doors for the Opening Ceremony (entrance on University Way) will open at 6:00 pm and you must be present in person to obtain a seat (you cannot save seats for others arriving later).

** The Closing Ceremony is an outdoor event. Grandstand seating is limited but you are welcome to bring blankets or lawn chairs for seating in designated areas.
