Buying Tickets

Buying Tickets

Oregon Coast Council for the Arts manages the Newport Performing Arts Center box office, which offers tickets to events at the Newport Performing Arts Center, 777 W. Olive Street in Newport. To avoid waiting in line, consider buying tickets in advance of the event date, in one of three ways: online on this website, by phone, or in person prior to the event. The box office is located inside the center.

Box Office Hours

Box office hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday (except holidays) and one hour prior to event start time; to avoid missing part of the show, consider purchasing your tickets in advance. 

How to Purchase Tickets Online

The OCCA box office sells ONLY tickets to performances at the Newport Performing Arts Center venue. For tickets to events at other venues, look for ticket information on each event listing. Find events in one of three ways:

  • OCCA website search barUse the search tool at the top right of the screen (looks like the graphic at right) to search for the event by name or production company. You'll then see a list of search results that correspond with your search term. Click the name of the event and look for the "Purchase Tickets" button.
  • Visit the Newport Performing Arts Center page and scroll to the bottom, where you'll find a list of all upcoming events at the center. Most events have "Purchase Tickets" options; some events are fundraisers and admission to those events is by donation, so there is no "Purchase Tickets" option for those.
  • Search for your event on the Events page. The events listed on these pages reflect what's happening on the entire Oregon coast; OCCA only sells tickets to the events at the Newport Performing Arts Center, so use the drop-down menus to narrow your search based on location and event type (such as "music" or "dance). Click on the "View Event" button in the listing for the event you want, and then click on the "Purchase Tickets" button.
  • If you don't see a "Purchase Tickets" button, and the event is at the Newport Performing Arts Center, the event is non-ticketed and admission is usually free or by donation (most non-ticketed events are benefits or fundraising events).
