On the surface you may be thinking why would I drive to Colorado Springs to attend a graduation ceremony at the Air Force Academy when I don’t even know anyone that’s graduation? Fair question, but let me tell you it’s worth it!

First off, the ceremony includes a performance by the Air Force Thunderbirds, and there are few spectacles neater than that. This year’s ceremony will also feature commencement speaker President Joe Biden.

Approximately 3,000 free tickets for the graduation ceremony will be available May 22 and 23 in two locations:

  • On May 22 starting at 9 a.m. tickets may be picked up in person at the Tri-Lakes Chamber of Commerce, EDC and Visitor Center at 166 Second St. in Monument. Business Hours are 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
  • The following day starting at 12:30 p.m. tickets may be picked up in person at the Colorado Springs Chamber & EDC building at 102 S. Tejon St.

A maximum of four tickets are available to each adult person on a first-come, first-served basis until the allotted tickets are gone. Tickets cannot be mailed and there is no will-call window at the stadium.

The graduation ceremony begins at 9:30 a.m. June 1 at Falcon Stadium. Entry to the stadium will not be allowed once the ceremony begins.
