Eight, there is not a way to facilitate adding ANY more seats to ANY table. At our inaugural event we were at maximum capacity for the Nacogdoches Exposition and Civic Center and we could not allow any more seats to be added due to Fire Code Limitations.  There is no standing room only availability either.

Nacogdoches County Veterans and First Responders must register for these ticketed seats starting July 1st 2024 at 10:00 am. These tickets are digital QR codes and will need to be scanned for entry.
