The following information will help ensure the process is a smooth one for you:

- You must log into the website to register. If you have not logged into the website before you’ll need to create an account with a username and password.

- There are a few changes to events this year. If you don’t want to take your chances by entering the lottery for RSVP1 you can bypass the lottery by registering at the “buy it now” price of $200. There are only 250 “buy it now” spots available and once they are all sold you’ll have to try your luck by entering the lottery. Don’t like to gamble? This year RSVP2 will not use a lottery and instead you can register for it online beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 29 at 10 a.m.

If you’re new to Cascade events and registration be sure to head over to our website and check out the frequently asked questions page. We look forward to seeing you at our 2013 events!
