Final Flight of Elevate Tickets

April 29th, 2012 : : : :

food CARt : food in motion, reinventing the street food experience, by Localmotive, Contrivium and Exis

We would like to sincerely thank everyone who has purchased a ticket for Elevate on June 3.  This undertaking has been like none other, an epic logistical challenge of a location on a bridge and involving so many diverse collaborators. It has also been a process full of surprises, one of the greatest being how fast tickets have sold. The release of tickets in flights has served a couple purposes. First, to create more opportunities for people to hear about them and have multiple opportunities to acquire them.  The 10% increase in price between flights allows us to cover our costs of this undertaking, which actually extends far beyond just the afternoon of June 3. 100% of the ticket sales makes the design and construction of these structures possible, in addition to the food they will serve on June 3.  After June 3, as determined by each team, their structures will go on to inhabit other parts of the city. We hope the structures find strategic permanent homes, or discover such a positive impact on neighborhoods and places in between, that they might spur new kinds of innovative businesses, site specific events, and become a part of civic life here in Omaha.

We are going to release a final flight of tickets for sale this week at $150 each, in small batches of 10 each day at noon, right here on our blog. We hope this extended schedule makes it possible for everyone out there really hoping to attend (and make possible) this one-of-a-kind experience.  Only 34 days left until Elevate!
