Your Arrival

A professionally administered negative COVID-19 rapid antigen or PCR test, along with a valid matching photo ID, is required for all visitors 12 and older. In lieu of a negative COVID-19 test, voluntary proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19, along with a valid matching photo ID, may be presented. Masks are encouraged, and are required for children between the ages of 2 and 11 for all programming. Masks are required for all patrons for the touring Broadway productions of Come From Away and Tootsie. Masking protocols for all other Broadway productions will be announced at a later date.

Arrival Time & Seating

Arrive early for the best possible experience. The Hayes Hall lobby opens one hour before Hayes Hall performances and 30 minutes before events in Daniels Pavilion. For Hayes Hall events with a pre-concert prelude, the lobby will open 90 minutes before the performance.

  Seating Charts

Late Seating

Late to a performance? Please note that late seating occurs at the discretion of the performing artist and cannot be guaranteed. If permitted by the performer, late seating is directed by the house manager and takes place during pauses in the program. An usher will let you know when you may enter the hall. You may be seated in an area other than your ticketed seat so as to not disturb other patrons. If an intermission is scheduled, you may take your ticketed seat during intermission.


Heidi’s Place will be open 90 minutes prior to performances through the beginning of the performance and 11am–2pm Tuesday–Saturday and Noon–3pm on Sunday, with snacks, beverages and food. For select performances, there are also three beverage bars located in the Hayes Hall lobby on the upper and lower levels, as well as a bar in Daniels Pavilion. Friends of Artis—Naples and subscribers receive a 10% discount on food and non-alcoholic beverages by showing their tickets.



We suggest business or business casual attire. The stereotype that you must dress formally (tuxedos, evening gowns, etc.) for a classical concert lives on, but only in cartoons and old movies. Never let your wardrobe keep you from a concert. Your experience is what’s important, so wear whatever makes you feel comfortable. We ask that you refrain from using strong scents, as they may be distracting to others.

Security and Bag Policies

Your safety is very important to Artis—Naples and our artists and partners. Therefore, firearms or weapons of any kind are prohibited on the grounds of the cultural campus. All bags may be subject to search upon entry. Large bags, including backpacks, suitcases or beach bags, are not permitted. Purses and other small bags may not exceed approximately 14 x 6 x 4 inches.

Pre-Performance Discussions

Masterworks and Miami City Ballet attendees are invited to attend a Prelude, a free pre-performance discussion where you can learn about the music or repertoire for that evening. Preludes begin at 7pm for evening performances.


For evening and weekend events, please park only in the spots on the Kimberly K. Querrey and Louis A. Simpson Cultural Campus or in our partner lots across Ridgewood Drive at FineMark Bank, Wells Fargo Bank, the SunTrust Building and Waterside Shops in parking garage levels 3-5.

Accessibility parking spaces are located near the Hayes Hall main entrance. People who would have difficulty walking from Waterside Shops to our cultural campus should arrive early to find parking in our lots.

Two spaces on the east side of the cultural campus are equipped with Tesla charging stations for Artis—Naples patrons.

  Parking Map

Rideshare (e.g., Uber, Lyft) Users

If attending a performance in Hayes Hall or Daniels Pavilion, please ask your rideshare driver to drop you off near the East Gate off Ridgewood Drive (the same location at which our shuttle drops patrons, denoted on the Parking Guide with a shuttle icon). Please avoid dropping off in the Porte Cochere near the front doors of Hayes Hall, as ongoing activity will block your entrance and exit.
