    Hi. Got my ticket, but where are the stages? I’ve got major mobility issues and need to scope this out in advance. I’m familiar with Sea Center grounds, but don’t know where these stages are being set up.

    Thanks. Cathy

    PS Delighted about Sojourners coming.

      Hi Cathy! You can enter the grounds on the corner of Warren St. and Republican St. That is right next to the venue and and has full access. See you there!

    Ticket prices seem to be for 12 and up. Are kids welcome and free, or not welcome?
