There is no way to purchase Winterfest tickets online.

You can purchase tickets ahead of time, but can only do so in-person. During regular business hours (figure 9am to 4pm) can purchase tickets to Winterfest at the Convention Center (40th Street) box office or at the Parks Department office at Northside Park. When the event is operating, you can purchase them at the ticket booth (to use then or later). If you buy in advance, you can go directly to the entrance to the tent, bypassing any line for purchasing tickets. However, most nights now should not have long lines. Except for nights right around Thanksgiving and Christmas, there is rarely a long line. Even on those nights if you go early (before 6:30) or late (after 9), the lines are not too long.

The Winterfest tram ride among the lights is about 10 minutes long

Tickets are $5 for people age 12 and above. Kids 11 and under ride free!

Hey Sandy as Darlene mentioned you must go to Northside Park to purchase your tickets. The booth will open about an hour ahead of the first ride so come on down and get your tickets. For more information visit http://www.ococean.com and click on events

I'm sorry, but no.  You can buy tickets in advance at either the Convention Center or at the Parks and Recreation Building at Northside Park during normal business hours.

There is rarely a long line and any line moves quickly.  You can buy them the evening you visit at the kiosk in front of the entrance.  We rarely wait more than 10 minutes to purchase tickets and get on the tram.
