WAIT LISTS ARE BACK!
We have heard your comments and Wait-Lists are back for designated events! For any event that is eligible for wait-lists (tickets to be given out at the venue), we will hold up to 10 names for the wait-list. You will need to email email@example.com to request to be on the wait-list for an event. We will email or call the person on the wait-list in order of receipt of email as tickets become available. Please make sure YOU ARE AVAILABLE BY PHONE OR EMAIL, should we try to contact you! Make sure your contact information is correct on our website! And if you request to be wait-listed, please be available to attend the event at a moment's notice! Thank you!
AFTA-CINCINNATI DOES NOT USE TEXTING SERVICES WITH OUR WEBSITE.
Many members have asked to be texted about events, but we do not use that service on our website. Other clients of our sponsor, Global Cloud, who also use the same platform may take advantage of that service, but we do not (partly due to the expense).
We have not been sending email blasts about posted events because that causes a "ticket frenzy" and sometimes crashes our site. The best way to stay informed about tickets is to visit the Upcoming Events page and the Event Tab as often as possible. Thank you!
ATTENTION GROUP LEADERS:
Please share our Upcoming Events Page at your location and with your reports! We try to update this several times per month!
Reminder: Our website is primarily for active military families, but we do include veterans as well. Veterans must be able to provide valid veteran id or DD214 to register for tickets. Only the veteran should be the person to register for tickets. AFTA and our ticket partners sincerely thank you for your service. If you sign up for tickets on our website, please honor your commitment and show up for events.
NOTICE REGARDING EARLY PICKUP OF TICKETS:
Remember to read events carefully. If there is no early pickup mentioned on the Event (and most times there are not!), then please do not contact the Box Office to ask about picking up tickets early. Help us to continue our good relationships with our venues, please read event pages/vouchers carefully! Thank you!
THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY!
CHECK OUT THE EVENT TAB AND UPCOMING EVENTS PAGE REGULARLY!

We are planning to give away bicycles to children of active military families on Saturday, June 1, 2019 from 10a-12:30p. 6-8 volunteers are needed to help distribute the bikes. Please keep watching the upcoming event page for announcements!
DID YOU KNOW???
DID YOU KNOW THAT ABOUT 80% OF OUR EMAILS ABOUT TICKETS GO UNREAD/UNOPENED BY OUR MEMBERSHIP?
DID YOU KNOW THAT NEARLY 3/4 OF OUR MEMBERSHIP ARE VETERANS?
WE ENCOURAGE ALL AFTA-CINCINNATI MEMBERS TO REVIEW THE LINK AT LEFT: CANCELLATION/NO-SHOW POLICY!
The AFTA-Cincinnati Board of Directors has approved the new policy due to the increase in no-shows in the last few years and the dissatisfaction expressed by our ticket partners.
All members, please click on the new policy link at the left of this page. This policy has been in effect since July 1, 2018 and will continue to be enforced. Please abide by our new policy and help us eliminate all no-shows!
Since implementing this new policy, no-shows are down significantly, but we still need our members to be vigilant. Be aware of tickets you have requested by logging in to the Event Tab periodically and checking your profile. It's easy!
NEW EMAIL OR ADDRESS?
Please don't register again on our website, just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to assist you with updating your profile. Having multiple email addresses for the same person on our website only causes confusion and more work for us. T
Each member is entitled to one personal and active military email address. If active, spouse may register also. If retired or veteran, only that person should register and have one email address on our site. Questions? Call us! Thank you.
NEWLY DEPLOYED TO CINCINNATI? WANT TO JOIN THE WEBSITE AND GET FREE TICKETS?
If you want to become a new member on our website - you can sign up immediately on any active event if there are available tickets. Just go to the Event tab, select the event link, select the amount of tickets you want and follow the signup/survey instructions. It's so easy and you can create your own password immediately! Remember - we consider Guard and Reserves as active military if you are serving now. If you have had a dd214 issued, then you are considered a veteran unless you joined another branch of the military. Retirees are receiving a pension from the government. Thanks for your service!
Please check out the links below for some information for veterans. Here are some of the helpful links available on the Military Wallet website:
DO YOU LOVE MOVIES?
