THREE IMPORTANT NOTES! :

1.  Harbour Station is a rental facility. We lease the building out to promoters and sell their tickets. We are not responsible for the show's content, sound quality or length. We provide a safe environment for patrons and will address any concerns brought to our attention.

2.   Harbour Station is NOT responsible for any changes in ticket pricing, new tickets made available, specials or deals that may happen after an event has been on-sale. These promotions are at the discretion of the Event Promoter.

3.   BUYER BEWARE!

HAVE YOU PURCHASED TICKETS FROM ANOTHER SOURCE?  Harbour Station is unable to guarantee the authenticity of tickets purchased from sources other than the Harbour Station Box Office or the Official Harbour Station ONLINE Ticketing System.

 Please take the following into account when choosing seating locations.

CONCERTS

  • FLOOR SEATING: Depending on the type of concert, people on the floor MAY STAND frequently or for the whole event. Be prepared to accept this situation.
  • SIDE OF STAGE SEATING may be close to the performer, BUT speakers, sound gear and cabling may obstruct views to the stage and the sound quality may not be as good. In almost all instances, Harbour Station is NOT made aware of these situations and it is not until the show is set up that these problems are identified. Tickets for shows usually go on sale before technical information is available.
  • THE STAGE LOCATION on Floor Plans is generally accurate but actual stage and chair locations are determined on the day of set up by the show's Production Manager.
  • Harbour Station is not responsible for any obstructions that are the result of set up.
  • Any patron who has concerns with the location of their seats due to obstructions caused by set up may contact any Harbour Station usher for assistance.
  • SOUND: Concerts may be loud! Be prepared for high volume levels with ear protection.

THEATRE SHOWS

  • SIGHTLINES: These particular shows tend to be best viewed from straight on towards the stage. Depending on the show's set up with side curtaining, some elements might be out of view if seats chosen are on the side of the stage.
  • It is the Show Production that dictates sightlines and seats that are to be sold. Harbour Station assumes no responsibility in problems associated with show sightlines or setup obstructions. PLEASE see an usher or Event Supervisior if there are any concerns.
  • For certain theater shows, late comers may be held back for a period once the start of the show happens. This is under the direction of the Show Producer.
  • The Box Office Staff typically have no technical information on a particular event. Final preperations occur on the day of the show, during the final set up.

HOCKEY

  • The puck may leave the playing surface at ANY TIME. If this is a concern, purchase tickets behind the glass, (row 5 and below) or in the end zones behind the safety netting.
  • Safety END ZONE NETTING is installed at both ends of the arena and this may cause a temporary sight line obstruction to some people. East End - Upper Bowl SECTIONS 4 to 12.

MOTOR SPORTS

  • Indoor motor events, MONSTER TRUCKS / FMX MOTOR CYCLES, create high levels of exhaust fumes. Harbour Station uses all means available to exhaust and intake fresh air, but be advised, there are still fumes
  • SOUND LEVELS are extremely high for these events. Hearing protection is strongly advised.
