Bag Check Stations

Special Notice: Mandatory Bag Check Station

BVJ is dedicated to the protection and safety of its fans, artists and staff, and new security measures have been implemented. Please plan accordingly for possible additional wait times as we process people through the mandatory bag check stations. We would suggest adding an extra 30-45 minutes to your schedule as you make your way on-site to see the entertainment; or don’t bring a bag and make use of the ‘Express Lanes’. If you are bringing a bag, please pack along only what’s needed and ensure you have read through the prohibited items list in advance.

We appreciate your patience and understanding!
