Festival Pass

We have an amazing collection of people coming to be a part of Eyeo, and we want our attendees and guests to get as much out of it as possible. Inspiration, collaboration, access and fun. We limit the scale in order to maintain the kind of atmosphere we know works best. Bigger is not better. Eyeo is special. We want you in the mix. This includes access to all talks + evening events.



Pre-Conference All-Day Workshop(s)

You wanna take them all, but you can only take one. Workshops take place at the Walker Art Center on Tuesday, June 14th, 2022. If a workshop sells out get on the waitlist.



Code+Care Summit

Code+Summit will be held Tuesday, June 14th at the Minneapolis Central Library. Code+Summit is a day-long open summit structured as an ‘un-conference’. It provides a forum for every attendee to lead discussions, present work, teach workshops and devise new models for effective communication. The summit is open to anyone. Attendance is limited to 100 participants. This is a “pay what you can” event. Minimum is $10 with a suggested payment of $40.

$10.00 – $40.00


Donate for Access

Share the love, share the access. When you buy tickets this you’ll see an option to ‘Donate to Access’. If you value a diverse audience at Eyeo as we do, this is an opportunity to kick in some funds (any amount) to support that. Your donation will be used to bring more accessibility, diversity and inclusion to Eyeo via scholarships, fellowships and services. It’s better with everyone.


COVID-19 policy

In the interest of everyone’s safety, comfort and confidence during the festival all participants will be required to show proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 at check in. We will also accept proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours of arriving at the festival. This is not intended to be a punitive measure but rather a supportive measure so all participants can fully enjoy their time and interactions during eyeo.

While this is the festival’s policy, we also have to adhere to the policies of the several venues we use during Eyeo as well as state and local regulations that may or may not change by June. At this time, our policy coincides with those policies. We will keep abreast of any changes and keep you informed if anything should change. As for mask requirements, we will follow venue requirements, local law and CDC recommendations and will send updates regarding that as we get closer to June.

*MASKING POLICY UPDATED: Masks are required in all theater spaces and strongly encouraged in all other spaces at eyeo.

We don’t like having to do this. But not only is required by the venues we utilize it’s also the smart thing to do given the state of affairs. (Another bleeping variant, another bleeping uptick. Gah!) This is not intended to be a punitive measure but rather a supportive measure so all participants can fully enjoy their time and interactions during eyeo. Do it for your neighbor and they’ll do it for you. It’s an act of love and respect. (Like you – we’re also very tired of it.)


We highly highly doubt that eyeo 2022 will have to be cancelled completely as in 2020 and 2021. We have several tools at our disposal to safely conduct the festival. However, we recognize that attendees may run into different circumstances dictated by COVID-19 as the event nears.

• We highly recommend getting travel/trip insurance when you book your trip to Minneapolis. In some circumstances this kind of insurance can also cover your event tickets.
• At present all of the 3rd party ‘event ticket’ insurance options we’ve looked at for individuals are not really sufficient in their coverage regarding COVID-19. We do recommend looking into options on your own. The festival does not offer any insurance.

festival ticket refunds & transfers

Tickets are non-refundable, but they are transferable. Transfers must be submitted to us via email by May 13th, 2022. Email us for details.


We only accept payments online via credit cards or paypal accounts. We use Eventbrite for registration and Paypal to process the transactions. NOTE!.. Using corporate cards with paypal can be an issue. American Express corporate cards in particular. Mismatched billing addresses/zip codes with business/corporate cards is a common trip up as well. Have an alternative card ready, or load up a paypal account in advance.


Eventbrite prefers up-to-date browsers, so use one to register. If you run into issues where buttons or items appear to be missing, try another browser. It never hurts to try clearing your browser’s cache and cookies, just sayin’.


If you see “PENDING” for a ticket type it doesn’t mean that it’s sold out. The system shows PENDING to ensure that tickets aren’t oversold due to the multiple concurrent transactions in progress. Keep refreshing the page. The transaction time limit is 18 minutes. We know it can be frustrating, and we wish we had a magic bullet for addressing the supply & demand imbalance that makes the process a bit harrowing, but we don’t. Keep the faith and hopefully we’ll see you in June.


A festival pass will get you into everything [except] the Pre-Festival Workshops and Summit on June 14th. The festival starts with keynotes at Aria the evening of June 14th.


On Tuesday, June 14th we’ll be hosting several Pre-Festival Workshops. They require a separate, specific registration.


On Tuesday, June 14th we’ll host the 8th edition in our series of Eyeo Summits. The theme for 2022 is Code+Care. This mini-conference will follow a ‘wiki’ format in which participants will determine the topics and structure of the day. All attendees are welcome and encouraged to propose and lead sessions. This is a separate, ticketed event, open to anyone interested in the creative coding community. It takes place on June 14th from 9am-5pm, preceding the festival’s opening keynotes that evening. More info is available at the summit page.


The Eyeo Festival is dedicated to an inclusive, harassment-free experience for everyone regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, accessibility needs, appearance, or religion. Our complete policy can be found here. We take this very seriously.


When you buy your tickets we’ll ask for some info. We use this to plan the event and make sure we have the right things lined up in the right quantities. We’ll include your name, organization name, sometimes your twitter handle or the town you’re from on your eyeo badge as you list it when you register. We won’t/don’t sell your demographic data to anybody. That seems dirty. You’re our beloved guests. (Who would do that?)

Student Volunteers

There are no student rate tickets. It’s not because we don’t like students – we love students! In exchange for volunteering during Eyeo you can attend the festival for free. It’s a good experience. You’ll get to see a lot of talks and make new friends from other schools. Peachy. The deadline to apply is midnight March 20th.

The application period is closed however we keep a rolling waitlist for volunteers. >> GET ON THE WAITLIST

Inclusion & Diversity Scholarships

These scholarships provide a festival pass. They are intended to broaden the audience at Eyeo by supporting attendees from groups that are typically underrepresented at the tech-centric events like ours. In this case, underrepresented can refer to several things, including, but not limited to; race, gender, identity, accessibility needs, socio-economic status, as well as fields of study/ employment/ participation. The deadline to apply is midnight March 20th.

The application period is closed.
