Prohibited Items

In order to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for all patrons and guests of the Steven Tanger Center for the Performing Arts, and given the trends in public assembly gatherings and overall event management, the following admission policy is utilized for events.

Tanger Center event staff will advise all patrons and guests seeking entry to the particular event that all parcels, packages, large pocket books, tote bags, containers, bundles, knapsacks, back-packs, umbrellas, coolers, bags, cartons, paper sacks, duffel bags, briefcases, portfolio cases, binocular cases, camera equipment cases, and any other type of extraneous device(s) which could be used for carrying or concealing items will not be allowed in the Tanger Center. Patrons with prohibited items will be allowed to return such items to their vehicle but will not be able to leave such items outside the facility doors. Any such items left outside will be immediately discarded by the facility.

For safety and efficiency, the Tanger Center requests guests enter without a bag of any kind. If personal items are specifically needed, guests should bring as few items with them as possible. No large bags are permitted. Clutch size bags (4.5” x 6.5”) or diaper bags with an accompanying child are subject to inspection. Bags will cause a delay in the entry process.

All guests and items are subject to a consent inspection upon entering the facility. This consent inspection may involve metal detectors. All small purses and baby bags will be subject to consent inspection, without exception.

The following items are prohibited:

  • Alcoholic or other Beverages
  • Artificial Noise Makers
  • Audio or Video Recording equipment
  • Cameras (camera policies vary on an event by event basis)
  • Bags - due to the pandemic, patrons should not bring any type of bag or purse into the venue. Patrons should enter with as few items as possible on their person, such as only a wallet, keys, cell phone, and a small bottle of hand sanitizer up to 3 oz. Should a small purse be necessary for medical or other reasons, it should not exceed 10”x 6”x 4” in dimension.
