THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride - ticket purchasing information

For 2021 Polar Express™ Train Ride Tickets:

VCTF’s THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride is our largest fundraising event of the year. The money we raise through sponsorships and ticket revenue helps to fund important children’s programs throughout Vermont. We think the cause it supports – the well-being of Vermont Kids – contributes to its popularity.

VCTF Supporters are guaranteed tickets.

Families may sponsor the POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride 2021 with a donation of $150 or more to the Vermont Children’s Trust Foundation.  We will publish your family’s name in the event songbook as a supporter of the event and of VCTF.  You will have the opportunity to purchase 5 tickets during our advance ticket sales period.
