New Story festival 2020 tickets Now On Sale!


Because we want the New Story Festival to be accessible to all, there are always TWO registration prices:

  1. Standard 3-Day Festival Passes are $199 - this is what we need to cover the costs of the festival.

  2. Discount Passes - currently our Super Early Bird Passes are only $99 through December 31, 2019.

In addition, full-time Students may attend for $89, Youth ages 13-18 pay only $39, and Children 12 and under attend for free.

You can also save 25% when registering for five or more standard price tickets at a time. 

Please choose a price-level based on the resources you have available, the benefit you feel you'll receive from this unique gathering, and your desire to support the work of the New Story. We really mean it - we want you to pay what you can afford, whatever that may be.

If you are able to pay full price, please do so, and even consider adding a donation onto your ticket price when checking out to help cover the cost of those who have to pay less. In so doing, you help sustain the New Story and make it possible for us to create an economically diverse festival community, full of life, energy, and unique perspectives!


Standard and Discount 3-Day Passes get you access to all programming, throughout the entire festival. Day passes are also available:

  • Friday Only (9/25/20) -- $59

  • Saturday Only (9/26/20) -- $89

  • Sunday Only (9/27/20) -- $59


We will never turn anyone away based on need, so if the discount price is still beyond your budget, you can earn a free pass by volunteering to help behind-the-scenes for 10-12 hours before, during, or after the festival weekend.

Ethical Commitment

The New Story Festival is committed to being good for the earth, for the people who attend and participate, and for those who share in its ownership. We seek the common good, we prioritize historically marginalized voices (e.g. women, people of color, indigenous peoples, immigrants, the poor, LGBTQ+ folks, and people with disabilities), and are committed to ecologically sustainable, fair trade, and living wage and/or fair exchange policies for contractors, employees and volunteers.
