The default menu is the duet plate with beef short ribs and chicken.  If you would like the vegetarian plate, please indicate in the “Special Dietary Needs” field on the registration.

Tickets are priced according to military or civil service grade. To help clarify how that works, here are a few examples of typical ticket buying options. Should you have any questions, please contact the Ball committee at The ticket purchaser can buy one guest ticket for the same price as the purchaser.  For example, an E4 buys a ticket for herself at the E4 rate and her husband works for Colorado Springs Utilities.  The husband’s ticket is also at the E4 rate.

If two military members attend together, each member pays at his/her appropriate rank rate. An O-3 & an O-4 attend together, the O-3 would pay $60 and the O-4 pays $70.

A purchaser can buy up to 3 tickets in addition to their own. The purchaser can buy one guest ticket according to the rules above.  The remaining two tickets must be purchased at the appropriate rate for their category, e.g., E7, O4, non-AFA member, etc.

“Sit With” requests will be honored to the maximum extent possible.  As a ticket buyer, you can purchase up to four tickets (ticket buyer plus three guests) and we will assume that you wish for everyone in your party to sit together.  You may also buy only one or two tickets and request to sit with other guests who are buying their own tickets.  Instructions for “Sit With” requests are found on the registration website. Ticket sales will close Friday, February 10, 2018.

Parking Options!

We have FREE parking this year in the garage – and with the Ball in Broadmoor Hall – there is no walking outside!  The other option is valet parking in front of the Summit Restaurant for $8.  Cars will be parked outside.  Guests will not be able to self-park in the outside lot as it is reserved for valet parking only.  Please do not park in the Golden Bee lot as that is for their customers only. Guests staying at the Broadmoor can take the free shuttle from the Main or West buildings or the South Tower to the International Center.

Spend the Night!

Deeply discounted rooms rates are available at the Broadmoor. 
$155 for a Classic King (Main)
$190 for a Superior King (South)
$225 for a Premier King (West)

Resort fees and taxes will apply which is still a wonderful bargain.  Guests should call the Broadmoor directly at (719) 623-5112 or (888) 974-4990.  Tell the Reservation Agent that you are attending the Air Force Ball, which qualifies you for the special rate.

Dress Code
