Q: Can I bring my kids to CloudTop?

Each attendee will require a ticket for this performance, regardless of age, and attendees under 13 must be accompanied by an adult. The Children’s performance is not included in any VIP, Weekend, or Evening Pass so that we can accommodate as many children as possible at this performance. All other CloudTop events are 21+, and proof of age may be required at any time during the festival.

Q: Is CloudTop a nonprofit organization?

A: CloudTop has applied for 501(c)(3) nonprofit status through the IRS. The approval process is already slow, and because of the government shutdown earlier this year, it may be several more months before our status is approved. We have been instructed by the IRS to conduct business as a nonprofit organization until our status is official. Our mission is to enrich Santa Fe’s arts and cultural offerings with an art form that is inclusive and accessible. We offer free and low cost tickets for select showcases, opportunities to earn an evening pass in exchange for volunteering, and a workshop with The Second City that will be free and open to the public. Space is limited for volunteer positions and for The Second City workshop! Please see the workshop and volunteer tabs for additional details.

Q: How do I get around Santa Fe?

A: Uber, Lyft, and public transportation are available in Santa Fe. Please visit TOURISM Santa Fe for additional options, including complimentary shuttles. Venues on each given night of the festival are designed to be walkable distance from one another.
