Health & Safety

Your Thunder Bay Community Auditorium looks forward to welcoming you back to concerts and events in a way that’s safe for patrons, employees, artists, and all other personnel in accordance with guidelines provided by the Government of Ontario and the Thunder Bay District Health Unit. 

But we can’t do it alone. It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to protect those around us.

What You Need to Know

Health Check

Face Coverings

Health Promise

Although proof of vaccination iscurrently not required to attend events at the TBCA, the safety of patrons and staff is of paramount importance to us. Event Organizers will continue to monitor local COVID-19 trends and ensure that they meet protocols mandated by local governments. By purchasing tickets to our events, you agree to abide by the provincial and/or local health and safety measures in effect at the time of the event. Please note these confirmations will apply to all members of your party before they are allowed to enter the event and to any users of the tickets purchased by you. Check back often for updates to your event's page on our website as guidelines are subject to change.

Our staff will also continuously clean and sanitize high-touch surfaces throughout the event.
If there are more than one event in a single day, our staff will ensure that a thorough cleaning is done between events.

Managed Entry

Using Cash Less Often

No Re-Entry

Come early to avoid the last-minute lines. We recommend you arrive 60 minutes before concerts and events, unless you receive an email from us suggesting another time to best arrive. In an effort to reduce points of contact between individuals at our venue, the TBCA is working to increase the acceptance of Debit and Credit cards at most points of sale. Right now,  the Bar, lobby vending machines, and some shows and events still require cash for merchandise sales. There is a cash machine in the main lobby for these instances, but patrons are encouraged to use Debit and Credit where possible. To ensure the safety and well-being of all guests, artists, and personnel, patrons will no longer be permitted to leave and re-enter the venue throughout the event.
