FAQ

Due to the incredibly high amount of major touring acts coming into Empower Field @ Mile High this summer, there were unavoidable conflicts.  In addition, the stadium could not guarantee the state of the grass field due to the packed summer performance schedule.  Because of this, we made the move to what we believe will be an incredible venue for drum corps--Canvas Stadium on the CSU campus.  
 

The Stadium Club is an interior area behind the Big Brass, Elite and Premium sections.  It features seating areas and a full bar with concessions.

 

The OCR Club is only available to Big Brass and Elite ticket holders.  This indoor/outdoor area is on the 50 at field level, and features a full bar.  Ticket holders can access the OCR any time after the show has begun to get a field level view of the action!

 

The New Belgium Patio is at the north end zone and is a bar/seating area that is open to all ticket holders.  

For ADA tickets, please call the CSU box office at (800) 491-RAMS (7267).  Box office hours are Monday - Friday, 9 - 5.  

Colorado State Athletics moved to digital tickets and parking in 2021. Once purchased, you can access and transfer your tickets from your account at CSURams.com/MyAccount.

Yes!  Our policy has changed slightly with the change in venue, but we will still be offering discounted tickets for groups.  Look for more information coming soon!

CSU is a no-tobacco university.  Vaping, non-nicotine vaping, and the use of tobacco, including smoking, chewing, and e-cigarettes, are not allowed on any CSU grounds or in buildings, in compliance with the 2018 governor’s executive order.  
Absolutely no prohibited items are allowed into Canvas Stadium. Even if a prohibited item is in a clear bag, it is still prohibited. Fans will not be permitted to enter the stadium with any prohibited items. It is recommended that fans familiarize themselves with the prohibited items, and ensure they do not have any of the items when getting in line to enter the stadium.
Colorado State will continue utilizing metal detectors upon entering Canvas Stadium. Colorado State University requires that all guests and employees entering the stadium pass through a metal detector. Alternative accommodations for screening will be provided to those who need it. Guests who refuse screening will be denied entry. Fans are encouraged to arrive at events early in order to avoid delays.

UPDATE 3/26/20:

To our Drums Along the Rockies Fans:

After several weeks of closely monitoring the situation–in coordination with Drum Corps International (DCI) and other drum corps (read more)–Ascend Performing Arts has made the difficult decision to cancel our planning for the 2020 Drums Along the Rockies show due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic. 

While we recognize the hard work and preparation already put into this amazing show event by our staff, this decision allows everyone involved–our show staff, stadium host, volunteers, show sponsors and our fans–to focus on their individual safety and well-being, and help their community get through this crisis. We have made a commitment to our members, staff, alumni, fans, and supporters to prioritize their health & safety first. 

What if I already purchased tickets to a canceled DCI show?

First and foremost, the health and safety of our members, staff, volunteers and fans is at the top of our priority list, and the spread of COVID-19 appears as if it will impact many parts of the country into the summer months.

We would like to provide you with options regarding your Drums Along the Rockies tickets you’ve purchased for the 2020 season.

We are grateful for your continued support of the remarkable activity we share. We remain optimistic that our best days lie ahead, and that together we will March On!… for the benefit of some of the best and brightest young adults across the globe.

With great appreciation and respect,

I Go On
