Tickets, accessibility and pets

Do you sell day passes?

Unfortunately, no. However this year we are selling a limited number of Flex Passes. These passes are purchased as a 3-ticket bundle, one ticket for each day (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). The purchaser can use the individual tickets as suits her/his needs, to share with family or friends. Each ticket in the bundle is redeemed for a different single-day wristband.

Do you have children, youth or senior’s discounts?

Children under 12 are admitted free of charge, otherwise one must purchase one of the passes.

Are there any public events?

Yes, indeed. There will be several workshops, a slow-jam led by society volunteers and a showcase /open mic stage, all free to the public. There will be a public family dance on Saturday evening, free to the public. The Sunday Gospel show is open to the public with admission by donation (all proceeds to the church).

Is there wheelchair access?

The two main concert venues – St. Elias Convention Centre and St. Christopher’s Anglican Church – can accommodate patrons who have wheelchairs.

Can I bring my pet?

Only service dogs are allowed in the venues.
