Removing "Free" from Event Cost Range

If your event has RSVPs or free tickets in addition to paid tickets (say the most expensive ticket is $10), then the cost range for that event will show as "Free - $10" by default. In some cases, showing the event as potentially being free might not be ideal. You can remove "Free" from the cost by adding the following snippet to the functions.php file of your child theme:
function tribe_not_show_free ( $cost, $post_id, $with_currency_symbol ) {
	if ( $cost == 0 || $cost == 'Free' ) {
		$cost = str_replace('Free', '', $cost);
		$cost = str_replace(' - ', '', $cost);
	return $cost;
add_filter ( 'tribe_get_cost', 'tribe_not_show_free', 10, 3 );
