The buzz about SacMod’s upcoming Mid-Century Modern Home Tour on May 18 is growing and tickets are going on sale March 1st!

This year’s tour is going to be exceptional, featuring entry in new homes and commercial buildings in Land Park and South Land Park not seen in our highly successful 2010 tour. We are bringing back our popular vintage transportation show, and have many additional features in the works such as historic informational displays and exhibits, goodies for attendees, and much more.

Additional information and updates about the tour can be found here on our blog and our Facebook page. We encourage you to keep checking in!

Our 2010 tour was a great success, with over 1200 attendees. The event was sold out, and we unfortunately had to turn many people away at the door.

We anticipate tickets will be selling out quickly for the 2013 tour as well, but have no fear - SacMod members will be granted early access to ticketing as well as a discounted rate on tour tickets!

*** Here is a breakdown of everything you need to know ***

Member Ticket Sales 

SacMod member ticket sales begin on March 1, 2013 at 9:00am via Brown Paper Tickets (BPT). Use the BPT link here on this blog in the upper left hand margin to begin the ticketing process.

Members will be e-mailed a link to Brown Paper Tickets (our ticketing agent for the event), and will also receive a secret members-only password which they can input on the ticketing website to receive the discounted rate of $20.

To ensure access to the 2013 tour, be sure to join SacMod (or renew any lapsed memberships) as soon as possible. 

It's easy to join! Anyone can become a member at any time! Click the link in the upper left corner of this blog to purchase a 2013 SacMod Annual Associate Membership via Paypal. If you sign up for a membership after ticket sales open on March 1, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with the Brown Paper Tickets link and members-only password within 12 hours. 

We kindly ask that members purchase tickets only for themselves and those who are accompanying them during the tour. No re-sales are allowed. Additionally, we will be cross-checking ticket sales with our membership database to ensure the member password has been properly utilized. Any unauthorized tickets purchased with the members-only password will be cancelled. 

General Ticket Sales

Ticket sales will be open to the general public on March 15, 2013 at 9:00am via Brown Paper Tickets (BPT). Use the BPT link here on this blog in the upper left hand margin to begin the ticketing process.

If you miss the members-only pre-sale, it is still in your interest to sign up/renew as a 2013 SacMod member to receive the discounted ticket rate. Tickets will be $30 for the general public, and will remain $20 for SacMod members. 

Tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. All ticket sales are final.

All advanced ticket sales end on May 15, 2013 at 9:00am.

Event Day Ticket Sales

SacMod cannot ensure that there will be any tickets remaining for sale on the day of the event. We encourage any latecomers to check in on our Facebook page and here on this blog for updates after advanced ticket sales have closed.

Any tickets sold at the door on the day of the tour will be sold via credit card only, at the increased rate of $30 for SacMod members and $40 for the general public.
