 Thursday, July 11, 2024 Beer, Brats and Bingo: It all started in Lakeville, Minnesota in 1978

Advance reservation purchase options - Card/Seat Reservations & Card Reservations

  • Reserved Seat and Bingo Card Reservation: Reserved seating available - $50 ticket allows you to pick your table(s)/seat(s) in advance. This also includes reserving a bingo card in your name. New for 2024, your Advance Reserved Seat Ticket will include two (2) tickets each good for a food OR beverage of your choice ($14 value). Ticket includes 4:30 pm early entry. If you plan to reserve seats and play multiple cards, you can reserve additional cards. Purchase your Reserved Seat ticket (1 per player) and then purchase Advance Bingo Reservation ticket(s). NOTE: For combo Reserved Seat and Advance Bingo Reservation sales, see BONUS CARDS detail below. Reserved Seats are by table location and seat number, layout is 8 seats per banquet table, 4 per side. NOTE: The graphic will indicate a seat on each end - this will not happen. Seats will be 4 per side. Each table is numbered as well as the seats on the table. It is up to the purchaser to pick the seats via the Eventbrite Seat Map when purchasing - Lions will not work to assist separated groups - select your seats with care upon purchase.
  • Advance Bingo Reservation for $30 guarantees a Bingo card will be reserved in your name - advanced purchase includes 4:30 pm early access to grounds for open seating selection. Advance Bingo Reservation ticket purchase does not include a guaranteed seat. Seat selection on the Eventbrite App for Advance Bingo Card Registration DOES NOT represent a location, but rather represents the bingo grounds other than the reserved seat section.
