Information for purchasing tickets to the 2017 VCTF Polar Express, December 9 & 10, 2017:

VCTF’s Polar Express 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.

Thank you for supporting Vermont children and families!

VCTF donors are guaranteed tickets to ride the Polar Express. Anyone who donates a minimum of $100.00 to VCTF between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017 may purchase up to 5 tickets for the 2017 Polar Express.  The deadline for $100.00 donations has passed.  Please look at the options below for ticket purchasing options.  

If you donate a minimum of $100.00 on Line 29A of your Vermont State Tax Return, please email us for ordering instructions before September 1, 2017.
