The Cedar strives to make our facilities and programming available and accessible to the best of our ability. To request disability-related accommodations for an upcoming Cedar show, please contact our box office at 612-338-2674 or info@thecedar.org.

The Cedar is an always all-ages venue. Discounts are available for people under the age of 12 or above age 65 when purchasing tickets at the door on the night of a show.

The Cedar’s performance space is accessible to patrons in wheelchairs. Seating is available for people with disabilities.  Entire access to the backstage area is wheelchair accessible. Additional seating is accommodated as needs dictate. To request seating accommodations, please contact our box office at 612-338-2674 or info@thecedar.org.

The Cedar conducts off-site performances in partnership with organizations that serve people with disabilities. Current partners include Midwest Special Services, Lifeworks, WorkAbilities and ALLY People Solutions. In 2015, we were named an ALLY Business Partner of the Year.
