The Ugly Christmas Sweater movement is about basking in the hideous warmth of an ugly sweater, having fun
doing good, and creating smiles. Working with The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada, we raise money
to fulfill a favorite wish for children diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Last year partiers helped us raise
$60,000 and create hope and happy memories for six children and their families.
Looking for a merry, sweatery way to grant a child a wish? Get involved.
The Ugly Christmas Sweater Party sells out every year. We highly, HIGHLY recommend buying your tickets early to ensure that you are part of the sweatery fun.
Doors open at 8:00pm. Let’s meet under the mistletoe at 8:01pm.
Besides free cookies and candy canes, the Commodore Ballroom offers a variety of reasonably priced food for purchase. You can also find a range of night-on-the-town food on Granville Street prior to or after the party, including: hot dogs, pizza, gyros, and more pizza.
Thanks for asking. Remember the best Christmas you have ever had as a child? The one where you breathlessly walked down the stairs in the early morning hours, and after glancing out the window at the Christmas lights glowing through a layer of freshly fallen snow you noticed a special package under the tree with your name on it? And you realized that Santa had brought you the only thing you ever wanted for Christmas?? Well, this party will be just like that day, except you will be an adult, and there will be beer. Oh and also live music, DJ, group dances and sing-alongs, mistletoe, gifts, contests, carollers, eggnog chugging competition, and maybe even a tickle fight! It will be a super time, and we would love to have you.
Yes, there is a mandatory dress code. Wear the cheesiest, ugliest, most festive clothing possible. Thinking of wearing something tasteful? Straight to Santa’s naughty list for you.
Sweaters are not mandatory. Festive dress code is. ‘Festive’ encompasses a wide range of possibilities in our book. Think ski- suit, pajamas, red and green leotards, body paint, candy cane costumes, snowballs, Buddy the elf, an advent calendar……bottom line: be creative! We have even been known to give out prizes to the “ugliest” dressers, so look your worst, and you may be this year’s winner!
Stop by your nearest Sally Ann or Value Village, raid Grandma’s wardrobe or simply search “ugly Christmas sweater” and get your online shop on. Extra points for elves, wreathes and Christmas tree lights. Got some time on your hands? DIY it with an old sweater. Add glitter fabric pen details, sew on jingly bells, add ribbon, the ideas and aisles of Michaels are endless.
The party is organized and operated by volunteers. After event expenditures, the proceeds are donated to Children’s Wish Foundation to help grant a wish for a seriously ill child. Get ugly and grant wishes!
We encourage anyone who loves the spirit of Christmas and who enjoys celebrating the season to join us at the party, whether you are 19 or 99! It is always a great crowd who is there to have fun and spread holiday cheer. Only humbugs are asked to stay away.
