Frequently Asked Questions

About TOFW

Who is TOFW for?

Time Out for Women is a weekend event for women of all ages to gather with friends and family to be spiritually uplifted and renewed through words and music. While event content will reflect the beliefs of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, women of all faiths are welcome to join us!

HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO ATTEND?

TOFW is designed for women ages 18+. While the event is designed for adult women, mothers are free to determine whether their older teenage daughters would also benefit from a TOFW experience. Due to logistical and safety constraints at event venues, we cannot accommodate young children or toddlers. See "Event Accommodations" section for infant policy.

What happened to TOFG?

Time out for Girls will be on pause for the 2019 tour. We feel the responsibility that comes with inspiring and influencing our Latter-day Saint youth. We are taking the opportunity to evaluate and assess how to best evolve the program for the best possible experience in the future.

EVENT REGISTRATION

Is there a group discount?

In prior years, the way to get the lowest registration price was to register in a group. New for 2019, a group is no longer required to purchase at the lowest price point—everyone gets the group price! We still want you to invite all of your favorite ladies to come with you, but we hope this will facilitate easier registration for each individual.

CAN I PURCHASE REGISTRATION FOR JUST ONE DAY? 

TOFW is a 2-day event with the majority of the event taking place on Saturday.  A registration purchase allows you admittance for the Friday Opening and Saturday Main events.  To add more value for attendees, we have lowered the price point of the full weekend registration to what was historically the Saturday-only price point.  For these reasons we no longer offer registration for one day. Just one registration option; more value.  If you are unable to attend on Friday evening for the opening event, you may check-in on Saturday morning prior to event start.  In order to attend on Friday a full registration is required.

can i purchase a registration for someone else?

Yes! TOFW is a perfect gift! During registration, you will specify if you are registering yourself or someone else. You will register yourself first, and then at the checkout page, you will select the “add another registrant” button above your order summary. Please provide the name and contact information for each attendee.

IS MY TICKET REFUNDABLE?

Unfortunately, registration is non-refundable. If you need to sell your registration, we recommend you go to the TOFW city-specific Facebook event page and let people know you have a ticket(s) for sale. Additionally, if an event is sold out, there will be a list posted at the information table at the event where attendees can buy and sell registrations.   

Can I transfer my registration to someone else?

Yes. If you are unable to attend and would like to allow someone else to use your registration, simply log in at the registration page and edit your order. Select “Substitute Registrant” and complete the registration for the new person. Scholarship registrations are not transferable.

HOW CAN I GET A TICKET TO A SOLD-OUT EVENT?

When a TOFW event sells out, typically no other registrations will be available through online registration. We recommend that you post a request on the TOFW city-specific Facebook event page letting people know you are looking for a registration. We direct people with available registrations to post on this page. Make sure you give enough information for people to be able to contact you easily and check the page often for others posting that they have registrations to sell. If an event is sold out, there will also be a list posted at the information table at the event where attendees can buy and sell to each other. We cannot guarantee that registration purchases will be available on-site when an event is sold out. TOFW is not responsible for the authenticity of registrations purchased between individuals; be cautious of possible scams.

Special Requests

CAN MOTHERS WITH INFANTS ATTEND?

Mothers are welcome to bring their infants under one year old. At each venue, a mother’s lounge with a live audio feed will be available. There is no designated seating for mothers with infants, so we suggest you select a seat that allows for an easy exit. In order to provide the best experience for all attendees, we ask that you step out if your baby becomes fussy. Where possible, the Mother’s Lounge will have access to an electrical outlet so nursing moms can have a semi-private place to pump.

HOW CAN I MAKE AN ACCESSIBILITY REQUEST?

For more information, see our accessibility accommodations page. Once you read through the accommodations available, if your accommodation warrants a request, please fill out a request during your registration process. If an accessibility need arises after your registration is complete, sign in on the registration page and edit your order to include a request.

CAN I GET SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETATION AT THE EVENT?

Attendees in need of sign language interpretation can make a request during their registration purchase. Please visit our accessibility accommodations page to verify request deadline. Event proceedings will be shown on large screens, which can be especially helpful for those who prefer to read lips.

IS LANGUAGE TRANSLATION AVAILABLE?

TOFW event proceedings will be in English. If an attendee needs language translation, the attendee is welcome to arrange a language translator with necessary equipment to translate for them at the event. Please notify our office staff of any language translation accommodations you or your group has arranged by contacting tofwhelp@deseretbook.com so we can provide the accommodations for translation.

Is there a scholarship program?

Yes. It is our desire that all women, including those with financial limitations, be given the opportunity to attend TOFW. To assist in these circumstances we offer a scholarship program. The program is based on the “Widow’s Mite Principle” with the scholarship recipient making the sacrifice to pay only what she can toward the registration.

AT THE EVENT

WHAT IS THE DRESS CODE?

Nice, casual attire is appropriate. Sunday dress is not expected or necessary.

WHERE CAN I PARK?

Parking information is available on the event details page for the specific event.

How WILL i CHECK-IN? DO I NEED A TICKET?

Upon arrival, attendees will be checked-in by name at the registration table and given an event credential, tote bag, workbook and program. Once event doors are open, you can proceed into the event to select your seats.  

HOW DOES SEATING WORK?

TOFW seating is general admission and first come, first serve. Limited premium seating is also available for purchase for every event.

The venue is required to attach chairs together in accordance with federal and state fire marshal regulations. If you desire additional space please locate a seat that has an available seat next to it.

New for 2019, premium seating for the TOFW Saturday event will be available as an upgrade during registration purchase. For more information about premium seating click here.

CAN I SAVE SEATS?

Excessive seat-saving is inappropriate; please be respectful of others who have also waited in line for seating by limiting the number of seats being saved. Please leave unoccupied seats together in groups so ushers can easily accommodate as many groups as possible. Seating will be redistributed from Friday to Saturday; seats cannot be saved overnight.  In the premium seating area seats cannot be saved; premium upgrade credential must be shown to occupy a seat. No exceptions.

Will I choose from an offering of classes at TOFW?

The TOFW experience is designed to bring your favorite authors and musical artists to one stage. This format makes it easy for you to relax and enjoy the event without the hassle of creating a schedule.

CAN I BRING FOOD? WHAT ABOUT LUNCH?

There will be an 80-minute lunch break on Saturday. We recommend that you and your group make plans in advance for this lunch break. Please note: most venues strictly prohibit outside food being brought into the venue. Specific information can be found on the venue website, on the TOFW event page two to three weeks before the event, and in the event details email sent to attendees approximately one week before the event.

IS WI-FI AVAILABLE?

Each venue is different so there is not a promise of attendee Wi-Fi in every location. Some venues do have free Wi-Fi available in public areas of the building, and all typically have good cellular reception.
