Standby Seating

We encourage patrons without tickets to join the standby line each evening. Many standbys are seated in the Conference Center each year. The standby line forms at the north gate on Temple Square approximately two hours prior to the concert start time. Patrons in this line will be seated in the Tabernacle and taken to the Conference Center to fill empty seats as they are available. Patrons with tickets are required to be in their Conference Center seats 30 minutes prior to the concert. Seats that are empty 30 minutes prior to the concert will be filled by those seated in the Tabernacle. The entire Christmas program will be screened live on the big screens in the Tabernacle for those not getting into the Conference Center.
