Christmas at Concordia logo

Christmas at Concordia attracts three thousand lovers of music from throughout the midwest and beyond. Four concerts feature the instrumental, choral and handbell ensembles of Concordia University, Nebraska. To best accommodate the parents, alumni, friends and supporters who will travel, we encourage our local guests to attend either the Friday night or Sunday afternoon concert. Admission is free, but tickets are required. Christmas at Concordia concert tickets may be obtained one of two ways:

How will the on-site ticket process work?

The ticket line will begin at the west entrance of Cattle National Bank & Trust Company’s downtown Seward location at 1:00 p.m. (CDT) on Oct. 15. As an individual, you may order for up to six tickets to a single concert. Orders are for single concerts only. A minimum of 300 tickets will be available for each concert and on-site orders will close at 3:00 p.m. or when all available tickets are claimed.

How will the online ticket process work?

Ticket orders will be available at this website at 1:00 p.m. (CDT) on Oct. 22 and conclude when all tickets have been claimed. Orders are limited to six tickets to a single concert. Orders submitted for multiple concerts will be cancelled, resulting in no tickets issued. Due to the limited capacity and finite amount of concerts, we will stricly enforce these policies in the interest of providing the most opportunities for others to join the special Christmas celebration and worship.

How can I order tickets for others that may have difficulty getting tickets themselves?

All ticket orders need to be in the name of those attending the concert. To order tickets for another person, you must use their contact information when placing the order. Only one order per transaction will be allowed on-site. To place subsequent orders, you will be required to go through the order line again.

Who needs a ticket?

Anyone occupying a seat at the concert. Due to sanctuary capacity limits in adherence to fire code, a ticket is required. Very small children who will be held for the entirety of the concert do not require a ticket.

Why am I limited to six tickets and one concert?

Demand for Christmas at Concordia tickets far exceeds concert capacity. Ticket limits are set and enforced to allow as many people as possible to attend and enjoy the concerts.

What if I have a group larger than six?

If you would like to attend with more than six people, multiple people must register for tickets.

What if I don’t get tickets?

While Concordia does not maintain a waiting list for concert tickets, a limited number of tickets are typically returned at each concert. These tickets will be made available at the "will call" table, which will open 60 minutes before each concert. These tickets will be distributed on a first come, first served basis.

22nd Annual Scholarship Parade of Homes

Scholarship Parade of Homes is sponsored by The Cattle National Bank & Trust Co. Net proceeds go to a scholarship program to benefit high school seniors from Seward County who will be attending Concordia University, Nebraska in Seward or Southeast Community College in Milford.
