Booking Policy

Connie’s Ric Rac welcomes performing arts in all of its various forms and music of all genres.  However, we do ask out of respect that you do not book shows next door, on South Street, Manyaunk or any other area of the city two weeks before or after your show at Connie’s.  This is no different than what any other venue or promoter would expect, so please abide by this in an effort to make your show at The Ric Rac the best it can be.
