Set up a recurring event

Eventbrite LogoUpdated by Cortney N

Set up an event with a recurring schedule if you have an event that is identical and repeats over a number of days or time slots, like a class or a tour. With this setup, attendees choose a date and time first, and then choose which tickets they want for the date they selected. This feature is currently not available for Eventbrite Music or events using reserved seating. If your event has one total price to attend all dates or times, follow eblink{these steps=>} instead.

NOTE: If you setup a recurring event by mistake, follow eblink{these steps=>} to change it to a single event.
