The Van Wert Area Performing Arts Foundation has announced the cancelation of all ticketed Van Wert Live events at all venues due to the inability to produce revenue and sustain operations under the mass gathering restrictions imposed by the State of Ohio Governor's mandate. The Van Wert Live Box Office is prepared to issue full refunds of all ticketing events. The VWAPAF Board of Directors and Staff are also extending the option for patrons to turn their refund into a tax-deductible gift as a 2020 Contribution or as an Account Credit to be used for future ticket purchases.

The Van Wert Live Box Office will contact ticket holders via email or phone to provide further instructions. Beginning Aug 11th, if an Account Credit or Contribution has not been indicated, the refund will be initiated and patrons can expect up to two weeks for a refund by credit card or check by mail.

Patrons also have an opportunity to help in saving stages across America. The final push to Congress is happening now and there will not be another opportunity. If The #SaveOurStagesAct and the #RestartAct pass, it will keep independent venues nationwide from closing permanently. Patrons can help us #SaveOurStages now at Every voice matters as this is a time to share with our legislators to save independent music venues.

The curtains are drawn, but the show is not over. Van Wert LIVE is dedicated to a future of economical and safe entertainment.

The Van Wert Area Performing Arts Foundation presents entertainment by way of Van Wert Live events that are powered by the Van Wert County Foundation. The Van Wert Live Box Office is located at 10700 SR 118 S, Van Wert and open Noon - 4P, Monday - Friday at 419-238-6722.
