Event Registration

Lindy Bout XV Event Passes are SOLD OUT! Thank you, Lindy Bouters, for your incredible enthusiasm and support to make our final year the best Bout yet.

Our waiting list is full. For information about how the waiting list works, see our FAQ

Lindy Bout registrants must agree to our Code of Conduct, COVID-19 Policy, Photography Guidelines, Refund Policy, and Waiver.

Lindy Bout XV Event Passes provide admission to all Lindy Bout XV events, including four nights and three days of dancing and activities. All competitors must hold an Event Pass. 

A Lindy Bout XV Event Pass costs $212 CAD.

Lindy Bout is a volunteer-run event and we more-or-less break even every year. This year, we are setting our pass price right at the break-even point: $212 CAD.

  • We realize that not everyone can afford this. If you are in a situation where a discount would help make Lindy Bout a bit more affordable for you, use the code minus15 for a 15% discount. 
  • If you are in the position to support the event a little more, and help subsidize people who can’t afford the full price, you can choose to increase your pass price by 15% by using the code plus15
  • Over the last three years, we’ve been overwhelmed by the support and generosity of the Lindy Bout community and the trust you have in us. By offering these codes, we’re sharing the same trust with you. 

This is the final year of Lindy Bout. Any funds left in our bank account after we pay all our bills will be reinvested into our jazz community.

Important Registration Information and Refund Policy

If You’re Competing
