Party in the Park features iconic rock bands at Canada Olympic Park's Winsport Arena
CALGARY, June 12, 2019 /CNW/ - PARTY IN THE PARK is moving from the WinSport Amphitheatre to the WinSport Arena, to provide guests with reserved seating. Based on last summer's and the more recent air quality issues caused by forest fires, event organizers felt it would be in the best interest of ticket buyers for the event to be held indoors.
All previously sold tickets will be honoured with premium reserved seating. The fully licensed event will take place inside Canada Olympic Park's WinSport Arena and is open to ages 13+.
Musical acts will be a showcase of some of the world's most prolific performers and songwriters.
Rock 'n' roll renegades STYX; George Thorogood and The Destroyers; Vince Neil performing all of the Motley Crue hits, Canadian heroes 54-40; The Northern Pikes; The Static Shift, and partystarters Toque. Is it a true long weekend party without Trooper? We didn't think so either. Also expect local acts sprinkled throughout the weekend. Jeff Parry Promotions and WinSport have crafted a lineup that is guaranteed to set the tone for one epic party.
Two-day VIP tickets are available for the festival. These guests will receive tickets in the first seven rows on the arena floor. Guests can select their desired seats within these exclusive sections. They will also have a dedicated VIP express entrance into the festival so they can beat the lineups. To complement their viewing experience, they can access the VIP Lounge. The lounge will feature a coat check where members can store their jackets or other personal items free of charge. Between acts, VIP ticket holders can return to this area and access full bars, enjoy comfortable seating and have access to exclusive concessions. In this lounge area, they will be able to access VIP washrooms reserved for our VIP ticket holders and suite ticket holders.
Public ticket sales begin on Wednesday, June 12th at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster, with tickets starting at $125 for a day pass, and $185 for a weekend pass. VIP weekend packages are available for $300. All tickets are reserved seating only.
Jeff Parry Promotions and WinSport are also excited to present a suite experience. For more information on purchasing a suite for Party in the Park, please contact [email protected]
Regularly priced ticket holders will have access to parking on premises (for an additional fee) as well as food vendors and all beverages.
