Inductions are so much more than just the Ceremony itself (although the Ceremony is off-the-charts dope) – we’ve got things happening at and around the Museum all week long. Check here for an ongoing, and constantly evolving list of all things Induction Week. 

Let’s Kick Off Induction Week

We’re getting the Induction party started with killer local music all day long, plenty of family activities, and a festival village with local vendors and community partners.

The headlining performance will come from Mourning [A] BLKstar, the winners of the 2021 Cleveland Arts Prize: Emerging Artist Award. And we’ll bring it home with a jaw-dropping fireworks show set to songs from the 2021 Inductees.

Everything outside is free for everyone. Our (lucky) Ohio Residents are also able to come inside the Museum to tour the brand new 2021 Inductee Exhibit…for free. That’s right. Free.

Ticket holders will receive an email with additional details. Fans with questions should contact the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse Box Office at boxoffice@cavs.com.

Why are you doing this?

This decision is a result of the surge in COVID-19 cases as the Delta variant spreads and the level of community transmission remains high in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, where the event will take place. The vaccination policy is being implemented as an open-ended one, with any changes or reversals informed by updates relating to transmission rates, variant developments, and local and federal regulations.

How do I show my proof of vaccination or negative test?

Acceptable documentation may be a physical copy of a COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card or negative test or a digital copy or photo of such Card or test

What if I forget my proof of vaccination?

You will not be admitted to the event without proof of vaccination or a negative test. If you forget your proof of vaccination, you will need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 48-hours prior to entering the venue, along with an appropriate ID matching the name on your documentation.

What about attendees under the age of 12?

As the vaccine has not been approved for use on kids under age 12, a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours of the event will be required.

Where can I get a free COVID-19 vaccine?

Check this resource to find vaccination sites near you: vaccines.gov/

Where can I get a free COVID-19 test?

Check this resource to find testing near you: hhs.gov/coronavirus/community-based-testing-sites/index.html

Will attendees be wearing masks?

As of today, masks will be optional but strongly recommended inside the venue. Please plan to bring a mask with you in case the situation changes and masks become required.

What if I choose not to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test?

Between now and October 10, guests who choose not to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test may log into their SeatGeek account or contact the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse Box Office at boxoffice@cavs.com to request a full refund of their ticket purchase.
