THE POLAR EXPRESS 2021

The Vermont Children’s Trust Foundation (“VCTF”) is bringing The Polar Express™ back to Burlington for its 20th year.  The event, to be held on December 11- 12, 2021 in Burlington, Vermont is a fundraiser for the Vermont Children’s Trust Foundation, and provides a high quality, affordable holiday event for the whole family to enjoy.  

Based on Chris Van Allsburg’s timeless holiday classic children’s book, VCTF’s magical journey aboard The Polar Express™ includes story-telling, song-leading conductors, chefs in white jackets and hats serving hot cocoa and cookies, and a sea of elves greeting riders to the North Pole (Union Station) where they will experience a special reading of Chris Van Allsburg’s book.  The story ends with a surprise visit from Santa himself who beckons the children to follow him upstairs where he hands out shiny bells that ring true to all who truly believe. 

Thanking our Corporate Supporters:

As VCTF’s signature event, it is one of the organization’s primary sources of fundraising dollars.  The Polar Express™ is an extremely popular event -- so popular, in fact, that tickets sell out immediately every year.  Because it is such a high profile event, it provides great visibility for VCTF and the companies who support VCTF.  All of our business supporters are offered advance ticket purchasing privileges for their employees, a fantastic way for our supporters to thank staff.

 Please contact Amanda Ahmadi or Theo Clark at 802-951-8604 for more information.
