Ticket Policies

I can’t attend an event, what are my options?

It’s a shame when life gets in the way of great art, but we understand that plans change. We offer both ticket exchange and donation options within the same season up to 6 p.m. the business day before your event. Submit this ONLINE REQUEST FORM to exchange or donate tickets. 

Exchanges into a higher-priced performance or seating area may result in a price difference and unfortunately, we’re not able to offer a refund for exchanging into a lower-priced event or seating area.

Mondavi Center subscribers enjoy flexible, no-fee ticket exchanges. Subscribers may also return tickets for an event credit to be used within the same season.

Single ticket holders (non-subscribers) may exchange tickets for a $5 per ticket exchange fee. Tickets may also be returned for a tax-deductible donation to the Mondavi Center. Ticket donations must be done in-person or by phone before the event start time.

Can I get a refund?

Tickets are nonrefundable, except in the case of a canceled event; all sales are final. Tickets for past or missed performances may not be exchanged or donated. Live performance is dynamic: all programs and prices are subject to change.

I have lost my tickets, what are my options?

The Mondavi Center Ticket Office will reissue tickets to the account holder. Contact the Ticket Office via phone: 530-754-2787 or email: to replace your tickets as soon as possible. The Mondavi Center does not replace tickets purchased through secondary markets.

What happens if an event is canceled? 

If a performance is canceled, you will receive a full refund or a credit toward another Mondavi Center event. Refunds are granted only for canceled performances. Handling and convenience charges are non-refundable.

House Policies

Arrive Early

We recommend that you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to event time to find parking, enjoy a beverage from our concessionaire, visit the gift shop and merchandise tables and find your seats. Events start promptly at the published time. If you arrive late, you and your party will be seated at an appropriate pause in the program or at intermission. For events without an intermission, you will be seated at an appropriate interval at the discretion of the house manager; in some situations, this can mean being given an alternate seat for the entirety of the event.

Getting Here

The Mondavi Center is conveniently located in UC Davis’ Gateway District on the south side of the main campus. From Highway 80 Take Exit #71 and proceed north on Old Davis Road.

Pick Up and Drop Off

A passenger loading zone is available in front of the Mondavi Center building on the west side of Mrak Hall Drive. Vehicles must circle Alumni Lane or proceed around the traffic circle at the end of Mrak Hall Lane to pull into the loading zone.


Event parking is $10 per vehicle and is managed by UC Davis Transportation and Parking Services. The main parking structure is located on Hilgard Lane, just south of the Mondavi Center building. Parking enforcement begins 90 minutes before event time. Parking fee is subject to change without notice. Detailed parking information can be found here.


Our floor-based air-circulation system and fire code regulations require that we check all bags over 8.5” x 11”. The complimentary bag check is located at the north end of the Yocha Dehe Grand Lobby.  All bags may be subject to search. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Eating and Drinking

There are concessions at each end of the main lobby floor selling beer, wine, spirits, water and a limited food menu. Bottled water is always allowed in the theatres. Details can be found in your EventMail.

Bringing Children to Events

All patrons must be ticketed, regardless of age. We strongly request that parents determine if their child can sit quietly for the duration of the performance. If you do find yourself with a restless young one, our Patron Services desk has coloring books, toys and other activities to keep them busy. The lobby has multiple monitors on which parents can watch the event.

Digital Devices

During performances, we encourage our audiences to fully engage with the work on stage. While you’re welcome to take pictures before the show, during events please silence and stow all your digital devices.


We offer special accommodations for our patrons with disabilities. For more information on accessibility, including seating, listening devices, sign language interpreting, Braille programs, service dogs and other accommodations. Detailed information on accessibility can be found here.
