Purchase of tickets from Unauthorized Sources

The Freight strongly advises against purchasing tickets from any source other than the Freight Box Office or website. Tickets purchased from unauthorized sources may be stolen, counterfeit, or otherwise compromised, and therefore, may not valid for event submission. The Freight assumes no liability for tickets purchased through unauthorized channels, including ticketsales.com, StubHub, Vivid Seats, Seat Geek, Craigslist, eBay, and any other secondary market or ticket broker services.


The Freight is accessible to people with disabilities. In order to best accommodate your needs, we request that you provide your seating request at the time of purchase. You must provide BOTH the number of companion seats needed (up to three companion seats max) for your party AND your specific seating requirements (e.g. wheelchair space, no stairs, service animal, etc.). Requests are reviewed on a first come, first serve basis and are not guaranteed.

Please note that ADA seats are only to be reserved for guests with disabilities and their companions. By purchasing these tickets, you formally pledge that you or a member of your party has a disability that requires accessible features provided by the seating locations being purchased. 

  • For special seating assistance, please call our Box Office at (510) 644-2020 or email info@freightandsalvage.org at least 24 hours in advance.
  • We will accommodate up to three additional seats in the same row for companion seats. Seats will be held until 30 minutes after show time.
  • If all ADA tickets are sold out, we may still be able to accommodate your party. We will contact you and offer a refund if we are unable to seat your party.

Audio Assistance

    • We are happy to provide assisted listening devices upon request.
    • We also offer a hearing loop system* that transmits sound directly to hearing aids with a t-coil. In this case, you will need to sit within the looped area of the auditorium.

*Hearing loop system is made possible by OLLI donor K. Patricia Cross.

Refunds are typically processed within 7-14 days. Refund requests for rescheduled or canceled shows will always have a deadline by which you must notify us of your refund request. If we have not heard from you by the refund request deadline, after 30 days we consider your ticket purchase final.
