We’re starting strong here right out of the gate by saving money. You can still get discount tickets online and save $2 on adults’ and a buck on kids’ tickets. There is a $0.75 fee per ticket +processing fee for online purchases. (Children under 6 are free.)


Where to Park?

You can park at the DECC itself or, if you’re up to walking a bit, there are lots and ramps in Downtown and parking in Canal Park, too.

Let Me In!

Entrances to the show are via the City Side Door B and also a ticketed entrance from the Skywalk.

Accessible parking is available on the 3rd floor of the parking ramp where the Skywalk entrance is located.  Be careful to not take the Skywalk over to AMSOIL. The DECC Skyway entrance is located on the opposite side.


Some of what’s inside…

And, this is also where you can find all the kids’ fun, too. There are kids’ fishing seminars, face painting, and more!

The Food is Fantastic

Porketta sandwiches, Chicken Wild Rice Soup, Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwiches, Veggie wraps, plus lots more!

and on Friday and Saturday: Bison Burgers and Turkey Legs!


Seriously, Parakeets?


Yes, the birds are back and eager to jump on your shoulders! As well as face painting and balloons!
