White Bird is a proud participant of Arts for All. If you are a recipient of the Oregon Trail card or SNAP benefits, you can get up to 2 tickets to each of our shows for $5 each.


Who can buy $5 tickets?

Anyone who has their own valid Oregon Trail Card. The Oregon Trail Card holder (or other SNAP benefits card holder) is eligible to purchase up to two $5 tickets, not more than two at $5.

When & Where can I get $5 tickets?

Tickets are available 2 hours prior to each performance in PCPA facilities and 1 hour prior to each performance at Lincoln Hall.  White Bird Dance Series and Exclusive Event tickets will be sold at the Portland’5 box office, 1111 SW Broadway.  Uncaged performances held at Lincoln Hall will be sold at the Lincoln Hall Box Office.

How many tickets can I buy for $5 each?

Two per Oregon Trail Card, per dance company presented.

How do I buy the tickets?

You must show your Oregon Trail Card at the time of purchase and pay with cash or credit card. SNAP credit on the Oregon Trail Card cannot be used for purchasing concert tickets. It is not possible to buy tickets ahead of time because White Bird doesn’t have a public box office.

What tickets can I buy?

You may purchase tickets to all White Bird performances in the season.  Tickets are limited to availability and restricted to Price Level 3 and 4 seating. Tickets are first come, first serve, so we recommend arriving as close to two hours (or one hour at Lincoln Hall) prior as possible.

About Arts for All

In January of 2011, twelve of Portland’s classical music organizations, operating under the auspices of Go Classical PDX and convened by All Classical 89.9, announced a pilot project called “Music for All” offering $5.00 tickets to SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) card holders.

Preliminary numbers for the six-month pilot program totaled 1,410 tickets used.  Funding for the program was provided by the Regional Arts and Culture Council, Work for Art and the City of Portland.  Plans immediately began to include additional arts organizations in the next iteration of the program and to expand it beyond classical music. The result, “Arts for All” was launched on October 3, 2011.

Go Classical PDX is an association of classical music organizations in the Portland tri-county area that shares and coordinates resources to ensure the public’s access to and awareness of a wide range of traditional and alternative classical music events by breaking down barriers, real and perceived, to participation and by advocating the public good created by Portland’s vibrant classical music offerings. Go Classical PDX is convened by All Classical 89.9.
