Tickets

WHAT EVENTS REQUIRE A TICKET?

Audience members only need a ticket for the pageant finale. All the other events on pageant weekend are free to attend for the guests of the contestants. The finale is the very last event on pageant weekend. The finale is the event where all the awards are given out and the new queen and her court are announced. When you participate in formal wear, personal introduction, or any of the optional contests, it is free for all your family and friends to come to watch.  Only the pageant finale requires a ticket for audience members.
 

DOES MY ESCORT NEED A TICKET?

Yes, everyone attending will need a ticket.  Escorts are not used during the finale, they will be in the audience with everyone else.
 

WHO NEEDS A TICKET?

Everyone, including the contestant's parents, will need a ticket to attend the pageant finale.
 

I AM A CONTESTANT, DO I NEED A TICKET?

No, the contestants do not need a ticket to attend the event they are participating in.
 

IS THERE A GUEST LIMIT?

No, there is no limit on the number of guests you have, providing we have not sold out the ballroom.
 

HOW DO I BUY TICKETS?

You can purchase tickets online up to one week before your pageant starts, at pageant check-in, or anytime on pageant weekend at the NAM Boutique.
 

HOW MUCH ARE TICKETS?

Tickets are $25 each.  They are the same price if purchased in advance online, at pageant check-in, or at the NAM Boutique.
 

WHEN WILL I RECIEVE THE TICKETS?

All tickets purchased in advance, no matter how they were purchased or who they were purchased by, will be picked up at pageant check-in.
 

what if I am unsure if someone is coming?

All ticket sales are final, so only purchase tickets that you know you will need.  Tickets will be sold throughout the pageant in the NAM Boutique on a first-come-first-served basis.  Please note that some pageant finales do sell out and ticket sales will be cut-off.
 

CAN I GET RESERVED SEATING?

No, all seating is general admission and on a first-come-first-served basis.
 

CAN I HOLD A SEAT ONCE I AM IN THE BALLROM?

At NAM, we have the "3-chair rule."  What this means, is when you enter any of the ballrooms, you are allowed to save one seat to your left and one seat to your right, and that's it.  You are effectively taking up 3 chairs, the one you are sitting in and the one on either side of you, hence, the "3-chair rule". Beyond the "3-chair rule", you are not allowed to hold, reserve, or put items on other chairs to try to save them for other guests.
