Note: Guest Attendance to GSMN events will give you very limited benefits. Perhaps, guest has to pay charges to attend all events which may vary based on the events (Typically $15 and $20). Becoming a member is actually a much better deal than paying for individual events. Lets say you plan to attend 4 events of Navrati and 1 of Diwali as a guest, this will cost you roughly $80 per person. However, if you are a member you can attend all events for under that price and SAVE a lot. With Family, the savings increases even more.
