Winterfest Tickets

Ahh, yes. That time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is about more than Black Friday, wrapping presents and impending snow. It’s also when Winterfest tickets go on sale.

December 1st is the date, $45 is the cost and 700 is the magic number (of tickets that will be sold). If you want more than that, click here for all the info.

    Anybody know the actual hours of the winterfest? Unless I’m blind and drunk (probably) I don’t see them posted anywhere.

  2. Ben says:

    beachscrat – 7pm-10pm.

  3. Vance says:

    How the hell did Berg get in the picture? Geez…

  4. Trav says:

    Shall we prepare for another epic website crash?

  5. Jason says:

    May as well plan on calling in. And completely crashing the phone system too. Oh the joy of buying Winterfest tickets.

  6. Tator says:

    Where is the info on how to buy tickets? does it get posted at noon? Phone number to call, or website to buy them?

  7. Ben says:

    Sold out now.

  8. Jason says:

    All 700 tickets sold out in 6 minutes!? I guess I should feel bloody lucky.

  9. Tyler says:

    Fail. I was reloading too patiently.

  10. Ron says:

    Unbelievable. I was refreshing the order page beginning exactly at noon. Up to 12:04, the site said the sale hadnt begun. Then at 12:05, it said it was sold out. Everyone must have phone ordered? My disappointment is huge. there must be a more equitable way to do this, like a lottery or something? To those of you who DID get tickets, enjoy! I’ll have to do my own tasting at home……….

    It’s not my intention to start a huge discussion on internet technology, but I’m guessing that you were the victim of your browser cache. In some (not all) cases, your web browser saves a copy of a website for a period of time so if you navigate to it again, it loads quicker. I was experiencing the same thing for the first couple times I hit the refresh button at 12:00, but then I emptied my cache, refreshed again, and was able to get in.

    Obviously, it won’t help this year, but it may help the next time you’re trying to get tickets to something.

  12. Kyle says:

    Matt’s right. Same thing happened to me. Cleared cache and cookies and we were rolling. Now to sell these puppies on Craigslist for $$$$!

  13. Kate says:

    Well, i bought one for myself and my bf was going to buy 2 (1 for him, 1 for his dad). He just heard about this deal this morning.. guess we didn’t realize just HOW quickly they sold out. I got mine at 12:01, by the time my bf logged on at 12:10, they were sold out. Now i’m stuck with a ticket and i don’t know whether or not to find a ticket on craigslist (maybe Kyle can sell me one) or if i should sell my single ticket for $$$ (like Kyle is claiming to do!). hmmmmmmm…

  14. Drew says:

    In general, folks, using Ctrl-F5 instead of the normal F5 for refreshing is what you wish to do. It bypasses the browser cache on most modern browsers (not something you want to do normally).

    I suppose the point is rather moot at this moment, however.

  15. Mensch Maschine says:

    One caveat to Drew’s comment – if you’re using IE 7 or 8, make sure you click on the tab that hosts the webpage before hitting Ctrl-F5. This is done to ensure the “focus” is on the page, rather than the address bar, search box, etc… Otherwise F5 and Ctrl-F5 behave the same way.

  16. Tucker says:

    Wow I feel pretty lucky to have grabbed two tickets. I got to the site at noon and at 12:02 it still said they were not on-sale yet, eventhough the main page of the ticket site said they were. I kept hitting refresh (IE 7 here at work) and finally the page came up.

    Looking forward to it.

  17. Disappointed says:

    My wife tried to get tickets the minuet they went on sale and had no luck. Was going to suprise me and a friend for christmas. I have to say after reading one of the comments on reselling them for big money is very sad. Is that the intended purpose for this event? to make money? Its too bad people see it this way.

  18. Kyle says:

    Just sold my last pair. $150 for two tickets!

    People must really like this event.

  19. ryan says:

    People buying up tickets to this event to resell are lame. 🙂

    That being said, Disappointed, I think that MOST people buying Winterfest tickets aren’t buying them to turn around and make money. Those of you who do, of course, are lame.

    Anyone have an extra 1-4 tickets at cost (Kyle need not apply)? Contact me at
