About our Classes

Why Tickets?

All of our events are ticketed events with limited seating.  Tickets are purchased in advance, on a first-come first-served basis until sold out.  Events at Via Umbria are unique and human scale experiences that are carefully crafted to create an outstanding and memorable dynamic.  By requiring pre-purchase of tickets, we minimize the frequency of no-shows and ensure that we create the best possible experience at the best possible price for what we offer. 


Each month’s tickets are offered for sale all at once, through our monthly event calendar, which is typically posted at least a month in advance.  We provide advance notice on Facebook and Twitter a few days before posting of a new calendar.  Subscribers to our newsletter are given an exclusive 24 hour pre-release opportunity to purchase tickets.  For most events, the maximum number of tickets that can be purchased in a single transaction is 6, although larger groups can attempt to make multiple separate purchases.  Event buy outs and private events are also possible.  Please contact us if you are interested in more information. 


Tickets are not refundable and cannot be exchanged for a different date or time, but they are transferable to other people. Think of it like buying a ticket to a concert, baseball game, or movie. Ticket prices do not include a 10% DC Meals Tax, which will be added to your purchase, or gratuity, which is at your discretion.

Tickets can be purchased online or by calling us at (202) 333-3904 or emailing us at feedme@viaumbria.com.
