NOTE: No refunds or exchanges. Drum corps is an outside activity and as such is at the mercy of the weather. This performance is one stop of many on the DCI tour and corps are unable to reschedule their itineraries in the event of a delay or cancellation.

Why did Drums Along the Rockies move to Ft. Collins?
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.  
What is the Stadium Club, OCR and New Belgium Patio?

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.  

How do I get ADA tickets?
For ADA tickets, please call the CSU box office at (800) 491-RAMS (7267).  Box office hours are Monday – Friday, 9 – 5.  
How will I receive my tickets?

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.

Can I still get group tickets?

Yes!  We are offering discounted tickets for groups of 20+.  Use the code GROUP24 for extra savings!
