Natchitoches Christmas Festival: TICKET SCAM ALERT

Buying tickets from individuals for any Natchitoches Christmas Festival of Lights event puts you at risk of being deceived by online scammers.

BUY FROM PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS AT YOUR OWN RISK!

Anyone that wants a ticket to the Festival can get one on our official website or at a Festival ticket booth. Tickets to events such as “Cookies With Santa” are LIMITED and ONLY available on our website.

The Nov. 27 “Cookies With Santa” event is SOLD OUT! The next “Cookies With Santa” event is Dec. 11.

Please take this precaution to avoid Festival ticket scammers. Only official Natchitoches Christmas Festival of Lights tickets will be honored.

PRICE
Armbands are $10. Children 6 and under are free and do not require an armband. Anyone who wants a ticket should be able to purchase one.

WHERE TO BUY
Visitors can purchase tickets (armbands) online ahead of their chosen Festival event date, or purchase tickets (armbands) when they arrive.

Tickets (armbands) are only valid for the selected date purchased at checkout online, or at a Ticket Booth on the date of the Festival selected by the attendee.

The Festival will have multiple, visible Ticket Booths available near the Festival area (Front Street / Riverfront).

The 95th Natchitoches Christmas Festival of Lights is not under the same restrictions as last season, so there will be plenty of armbands (tickets) for anyone that wants to attend.

Festival tickets (armbands) can be purchased at the ticket booths with cash or credit cards. Card purchases can be made using visitors’ smartphones. There will be special Scan Codes available and visible at the ticket booths for a smartphone user to make their ticket (armband purchases).

BUYING TICKETS ONLINE
All who have purchased tickets (armbands) ahead of time online will need to visit a Festival Ticket Booth and present proof-of-purchase (printed or on their device) to retrieve their armbands before entry to the Festival area.

BUYING TICKETS AT THE FESTIVAL
Visitors that would like to purchase their tickets (armbands) when they arrive will need to visit a Festival Ticket Booth to make their purchase before entry to the Festival area.

NOTE: Ticket Booths open at 1pm on Ticketed Event Dates. Visitors can enjoy the Riverfront area before that time, but will require a ticket (armband) to remain in the area once Ticket Booths open.

CASH, CARDS, & SMARTPHONES
Festival tickets (armbands) can be purchased at the ticket booths with cash or credit cards. Card purchases can be made using visitors’ smartphones. There will be special Scan Codes available and visible at the ticket booths for smartphone users to make their ticket (armband purchases).

CONVENIENCE
Buying tickets online ahead of time is more convenient and will save visitors time when acquiring tickets (armbands) at the ticket booths when they arrive.

HAVE YOUR RECEIPT WITH YOU
Whether purchasing online or at the Festival ticket booths when they arrive, it is important for all visitors to retain copies (digital or physical) of their purchases on their person to eliminate any errors or confusion.
