Unique Box Seat Opportunity at the Celebration



SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. - One of the most prized pieces of real estate you can own is a 10-by-10 square on the Celebration Grounds known as a box seat. The possibility of having one of those boxes on a one-year-only basis has now become a reality.

The Celebration normally has just over 100 box seats come up for one-year-only assignment with a list of about 250 wanting those boxes. The same 100-or-so boxes came open again this year. However, due to the construction of 350 new boxes on the east side, many of those on the waiting list were able to receive permanent assignment in the new section and the waiting list was shorter.

Because of that, there are currently around 25 boxes available for one-year assignments and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

"There are many reasons that a box seat holder can't make it to the Celebration,” said CEO Ron Thomas. "They include health, business and other personal issues. As a service to our customers, we are able to match them up with buyers from the one-year waiting list.”

There is a waiting list for those wanting permanent box seat assignment estimated at 12-13 years. The construction of the 350 new boxes on the east side of the Celebration Arena has allowed many on the waiting lists to receive permanent box seats, creating the opportunity we have today.

“The new boxes sold out in less than two weeks,” said Thomas. “Many of those who were assigned boxes on the east side were those folks normally on our one-year waiting list. There has always been a high demand for Celebration box seats and we are very grateful to our loyal customers that keep the demand high. The east side construction answers the needs of our customers and simply shuffled the deck a little and made this opportunity come to light.”

Individuals interested in one of the boxes can contact the Celebration Ticket Office by phone or visit them in person at the Celebration office complex underneath the west grandstand.
