VERNON - They are the hottest tickets, or should we say treasures in town.

Tickets for the 59th Annual Vernon Winter Carnival; A Pirate’s Carnival, go on sale this Friday, Dec. 7 at 9 a.m., and many events will sell out quickly as they do every year.

This year’s theme will bring out all sorts of swash bucklers dressed in their friendliest or most feared pirate costumes. Presented by Valley First, the celebration runs throughout Vernon from Feb. 1 to Feb. 10, 2019.

“There are 20 returning events and 11 new ticketed events to Carnival this year,” says Vicki Proulx, carnival executive director. These include Pirates of the Caribbean Dance Party, hosted by City Dance, Origami and Tea hosted by Teassential, UnWined Downtown, hosted by Downtown Vernon Association, St. James Family Fling, Predator Ridge Parka Party, voted best new event last year, Mother Daughter Princess Tea, and many more.

There are a couple of changes this year, however. 

“Due to popularity, tickets for Suds N Cider, they will not be available online this year. You must come in person or buy over the phone and there is a limit of six tickets per person,” says Proulx.

As well, new this year with the Jopoehouse Luncheon will be two different acts; Feb. 7 duelling pianos will entertain diners, while Feb. 8 the Soul Men Blues Brothers Tribute will take to the stage.

Tickets for the popular Chilli Cook Off do not go on sale until Jan. 15, so keep that in mind, says Proulx.

All tickets can be bought over the phone by calling the Carnival office at 250-545-2236, in person at 3401 35 Ave. and online at www.vernonwintercarnival.com.
