State Games of America special events and venues will charge admission at the door/gate. Registered participants gain free access to all SGA 2017 special events (except for Opening Ceremonies) and venues via their Athlete Credential which is included in the athlete packet.
The 2017 State Games of America Opening Ceremony will be a ticketed event. We anticipate the Opening Ceremony to be a sold out event. Tickets must be purchased in advanced to ensure admission to the Opening Ceremony.
