It’s described as the “biggest, wildest, sweateriest bash of the season” as the Original Ugly Christmas Sweater Party returns the 15th year in support of The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. Experience all the magic of Christmas you felt as a child with all the benefits of being an adult as you sport you best and brightest holiday sweater while supporting a great cause.

Where: Commodore Ballroom, Vancouver
When: Friday, December 23, 2016 doors at 8:00pm
Tickets: Available online now or by calling Ticketmaster at (604) 280-4444. Tickets are $35 and include one craft beer.

“What was a small house party among friends has become Vancouver’s must attend party of the year,” says Chris Boyd, Co-Founder & Organizer of The Original Ugly Christmas Sweater Party. “This year we will be celebrating 15 years of unbridled ugly sweateriness with hilarious holiday fun, super charged energy, and great people.”

The trend setting Original Ugly Christmas Sweater Party features live music from Groove & Tonic and holiday cheer including festive tunes, a dance party, a visit with Saint Nick, and souvenir pictures in Grandma’s living room. With prizes for Ugliest Sweater, Most Original Sweater, Best Mustache, and Group Costume on offer, party-goers are challenged to take their sweaters where no sweater has gone before.

“It’s jovial, it’s relaxing,” Co-Founder Jordan Birch told me last year. He says they create an environment where people automatically have something to talk about and a reason to connect. “It’s really all been about fun but it’s also about giving back.”

If you love the spirit of Christmas and celebrating the season, they dare you to get ugly in support of good cause – granting exceptional wishes for children with a life threatening illness. Last year the Now That’s Ugly Society donated $18,000 to the Children’s Wish Foundation, BC and Yukon Chapter!

    It’s got to be interactive. Must have a try me button for lights or a catchy tune. Bonus if has embellishments that make people want to interact with you!
