In response to the recent dramatic rise in COVID-19 infections in Central Indiana and to safeguard the health and security of our guests, artists and staff, all attendees will be required to provide proof of vaccination or negative test before entering concert venues.

Proof of vaccination or negative test can be provided by either the Bindle app or by showing a paper/digital vaccination card with a photo ID at entry. Bindle is a popular smartphone app that enables free and secure sharing of vaccination status and is in use at other arts organizations in Indianapolis and across the country.

Tickets are available for the 2021-2022 Grand Encounter concerts!
