All guests, teachers and dancers included, aged eight and older will require special event wristbands to access the competition area of the North American Irish Dance Championships. These wristbands are available for a fee of CDN$130 per day per person at the registration desk right outside the competition ballrooms. People aged 7 and under do not require wristbands to access the venue.
The CDN$130 Canadian fee will be waived for anyone who presents a valid BC Provincial Driver’s License and/or an official student identification card from any BC University. Local daily admission rates will apply instead, CDN$35 a day. The CDN$130 fee will also be waived for people registered in the official Irish Dance block at one of our many host hotels. Wristbands will be issued relative to the number of people booked in the room and the number of days booked. Guests staying at a host hotel but not booked in the block will not be entitled to receive complementary wristbands so please review your booking to make sure you are in our block. No exceptions will be made!
The event earns much-needed sponsorship funds through contracted hotel room bookings, which is why reservations must be made in a block type system. Although cumbersome, the wristband policy has proven to be best for the successful running of the event and to ensure its financial needs are met. It also helps to secure low room rates, especially over holiday weekends. In order to get those low rates booking guarantees must be achieved.
Simply booking in the hotel isn’t sufficient.
