Welcoming You Back

We’re looking forward to seeing you back in our sanctuary and online this fall. As events go on sale, information indicating whether the event is virtual, in-person, or in-person with a virtual attendance option will be noted on each individual event page.

Your health and safety remain our top priority. Effective September 6, 2021, proof of vaccination will be required at all Sixth & I programs in our building. Please review our health and safety policies prior to purchasing your tickets:


  • You must show proof that you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 any time you enter Sixth & I’s building. We will accept either a physical vaccination card or a photo of the card on your phone. Per the CDC, people are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine.
  • If you are under the age of 12 and/or have medical conditions or closely-held religious beliefs preventing vaccination, you must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test administered no more than 72 hours before the event’s start time.
  • For children, we will accept the following documentation:
    • Ages 12+: Proof of vaccination
    • Ages 5 – 11: Proof of vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test
    • Ages 2 – 4: Negative COVID-19 test
    • Under 2: Tests are not required


  • Masks will continue to be required for everyone ages two and over. To maximize protection, your mask must completely cover your nose and mouth and fit snugly against the sides of your face without gaps. Bandanas, gaiters, and masks with exhaling valves are not permitted.

The above policies reflect protocols at events held in Sixth & I’s building. For offsite events hosted by Sixth & I, mask and vaccination policies will be noted on the individual event page.

Requirements are subject to change at Sixth & I’s discretion. With questions, contact Amanda Loerch, Director of Patron Services.

Virtual Events

With virtual programming, you’ll always have a front row seat! We leave it to you to negotiate with family and roommates for the best seat in the house. We encourage you to log on to programs a few minutes early to settle in and resolve any home internet issues. To make your virtual experience as seamless as possible, please review our frequently asked question guides for Zoom and for Facebook live prior to your events.

If you are experiencing technical difficulty during any virtual event, please contact Amanda Loerch or reply to the Eventbrite confirmation email you received prior to the event.


Programs, prices, and dates are subject to change. To purchase tickets, please refer to the “How to Purchase” section located on each event’s page. Additional fees may apply.

Seating is general admission, first come, first served. We encourage you to arrive early to allow enough time to move through security and to have the best seating options.

All ticket sales are final and non-refundable. There are no refunds unless an event is canceled. If you are unable to use your tickets, you may transfer them to another person. To transfer a ticket, contact Amanda Loerch.

We do not keep a wait list for sold-out events. We do not condone purchasing or re-selling tickets through third-party sites. Invalid tickets sold through third-party sites will not be honored by Sixth & I.

Ticket age limit: All guests two years and older are required to have a ticket. Unless specified on the event page, events are all ages.
