Discount online ticketing and registration is now available for WinterPride and the Queer Utah Aquatic Club’s Ski-n-Swim weekend, held this year from Feb. 8-17.
Those who wish to attend are encouraged to purchase tickets early.
“Many of the activities and venues have limited space and seating, requiring us to cap the numbers of tickets sold,” said Brandie Balken of the Utah Pride Center. “Most of the activities sold out last year, so I encourage everyone to purchase their tickets as soon as possible.”
Dave Robinson of the QUAC also encouraged people to buy tickets early particularly as the club’s popular Ski-n-Swim weekend is now an official part of WinterPride’s events. “Since we streamlined our events and combined WinterPride with QUAC’s Ski-n-Swim weekend, we anticipate even more participation this year,” he said.
Along with the Skin-n-Swim’s US Masters sanctioned swim meet, WinterPride’s “10 Gay Days” lineup also includes such attractions as family ice skating, a film night at the Tower Theatre featuring local directors, writers and performers, and “FAMILIES: It’s All Relative,” a Valentine’s Day photo exhibit on queer families. The festivities will close with a Mardi Gras party and awards ceremony at The Depot.
