In addition to these performances, the Festival week will also feature the 4 days of the world-famous BEMF Exhibition and concurrent events such as performance masterclasses, dance workshops, lectures, and symposia. Week and Day Passes will be sold for admittance to all of these events. Festival Week Passes ($40) are available in advance and Festival Day Passes ($10) can be purchased each day at the Festival Welcome Center or at any of the above events.

A series of Fringe Concerts will also take place during Festival week, featuring performances by nearly 100 soloists and ensembles. Fringe Concerts are all presented by the artists themselves and ticketing will be at their discretion. More information about Fringe Concerts will be available in spring, 2019.
