SEPT 23 – TICKET UPDATE
UPDATE / SEPT 23 :
Hello everyone! A huge thank you to our extended Restricted Entertainment community of family and friends for the crazy support, excitement and enthusiasm for all our Halloween weekend events! Sin City sold out in just a few hours on the day of ticket release, Passion Portal shortly thereafter by the end of the day, and while there are still tickets for our Coffin Club party on October 31, those are going quickly as well! We have an amazing cross-section of creative, weird and wonderful people geared up to celebrate the weekend on all three days of the festival!
There’s still lots of questions and unknowns for attendees, venues and event organizers alike as we move forward through these wild times. There are an unbelievable amount of things which all have to be co-ordinated exactly right for events like these to happen, and while everyone is doing their best, no one can 100% predict for sure what the future holds, and all we can do is plan for the best, but be prepared for whatever outcome happens. Thank you for your patience, support and understanding as we do our best to bring everything needed together to make the events happen, in a way that is transparent and safe for our communities.
We are currently still in Phase 3 of the BC Reopening Plans, which currently means no dancing inside, seated, no mingling between tables, limited capacity, masks etc. Phase 4 will be when indoor dancing becomes permitted, masks become optional, and capacity is increased for indoor events. The date of Sept 7 was given as the earliest date the province would move to Phase 4, but this has been delayed due to the still ongoing persistent high new daily case counts.
As of October 24, it will become mandated that all attendees of indoor events will have to provide proof of double vaccination. The province has indicated they will give further information as to the reopening plans by this date. The general assumption is that indoor events will essentially be permitted to move to Phase 4 at this point. While we would hope for more information earlier rather than later, this is not guaranteed, and we are currently in a holding pattern waiting for more news. When a further news bulletin from the province arrives, it could be many things : no change, everything still closed, or, open, but with capacity restrictions, or, open fully with no restrictions. We must all be prepared for the possibility of any of these things to happen, though of course we are all planning for things to re-open.
The events will only be proceeding if dancing and mingling is permitted with masks optional. If these things are still not permitted by Halloween weekend, the events will be postponed / cancelled, and tickets refunded.
“WILL THERE BE MORE TICKETS RELEASED?”
We are currently at 50% of the capacity of the venue sold out for Sin City & Passion Portal. There are still tickets available for Coffin Club. These are all the tickets we can currently release at this time for the Passion Portal and Sin City parties. We are monitoring all news releases from the Province carefully, and if there is a green light that we can open at a higher capacity, more tickets will be released immediately. We highly recommend signing up to the Newsletters for Passion Portal and Sin City and not relying on social media for news of more tickets becoming available.
“ARE THERE ANY TICKETS IN STORES?”
No. All tickets are online only. There are no printed physical tickets. Beware of scammers!
“WILL WE BE ALLOWED TO DANCE?”
The event will only be proceeding if dancing is allowed, so yes.
“WILL WE HAVE TO WEAR MASKS?”
The event will only be proceeding if masks are optional and not required, so, no.
“WILL WE HAVE TO STAY SEATED AT A TABLE?”
The event will only be proceeding if mingling is allowed, so, no.
“WILL I BE REQUIRED TO SHOW PROOF OF VACCINATION?”
Yes. By the time of Halloween, all legal indoor venues and businesses hosting social gatherings will be required by government mandate and health orders to have all attendees provide proof of double vaccination, and photo ID. You can find out more about vaccine policies here : https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/covid-19/vaccine/proof
“I’M COMING FROM OUTSIDE B.C., WHAT DO I USE FOR VACCINE PROOF?”
As per the weblink listed above, people from other Canadian provinces or territories must show :
– Provincially/territorially officially recognized vaccine record
– Valid government photo ID
“HOW DO I REQUEST A REFUND OR TICKET TRANSFER?”
This is handled by the venue’s ticketing team. Please direct ticket change emails to :
We know it’s mentally exhausting dealing with the uncertainty surrounding events at this time – we feel this and are doing everything we can to get back to large-scale in-person events as soon as humanly possible. We remain committed to doing so safely, with the prime directive being to bring the community together again to celebrate our diversity and collectively participate in the joy of self-expression in an encouraging, inspiring and accepting atmosphere!
