To get FREE tickets to a taping, please start by scrolling down and selecting a date and time.

Please only submit one request for tickets. Submitting more than one request will result in the cancellation of all your ticket requests! There will be no response to your initial ticket request. If you are granted tickets, you will be contacted via email by one of our audience department representatives with available dates and times from which to choose. We then email out Rachael Ray tickets two weeks prior to the show date. We will do everything possible to fulfill your request, but we cannot guarantee availability on your requested dates. We do not mail tickets!

Due to the high number of ticket requests, it may be a while before we are able to accommodate your request. Parties are only permitted to attend a taping once per season. If a member of the staff or crew recognizes you as a repeat audience member, you will be denied admittance.
