Stormy Weather

Midsummer Night Swing makes every effort to present each event of the season, as long as unpredictable summer weather allows. Performance cancellations due to inclement weather will not be announced until 8:30 on show night. In the case of a cancellation, ticket holders are entitled to exchange for another performance or a refund. Pass holders are not entitled to a refund. If a performance has begun and is cancelled after 8:30 exchanges or refunds are not offered.
