Break out that jumper your grandma knitted for you in Grade 8 – the Ugly Christmas Sweater Party is back for its 15th year in Vancouver.
As one of Metro Vancouver’s most beloved holiday shindigs, the Ugly Christmas Sweater Party was originally started at a house party by three friends in 2002. Since then, the party has grown, from a small house party to a annual celebration for hundreds of people in Metro Vancouver.
This year’s event takes place at the Commodore Ballroom, featuring a ton of hilarious holiday fun, including live music, sing-alongs, an eggnog chugging contest, prizes for Ugliest Sweater, Most Original Sweater, Best Moustache, and Best Group Costume.
Not only is the Ugly Christmas Sweater Party a great way to celebrate the holidays, it’s a great way to support kids. The team behind the party also helps to raise money to support the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada.
When: Friday, December 23, doors open at 8 pm
Where: Commodore Ballroom – 868 Granville Street, Vancouver
Tickets: $35, available online.
