So there you have it, all the tickets you can purchase at C4. You may wonder how we choose our prices but as an NPO the answer is simple: enough so we can pay the bills, not too much that we actually turn a profit. It’s definitely a fine line which is why when things like venues, guests, equipment, advertising, etc. raise in price, that’s when our tickets prices also change. We do our best to have the lowest ticket prices in Canada because when you come to C4 we want you to be able to buy things in the exhibitor hall, artist alley or guest alley. We want you to have a great experience, at a family friendly price.

I didn’t mention that kids 12 & Under attend C4 for FREE if they’re accompanied by an adult did I?
Well that too, and even when the kids hit 13, we have YOUTH passes!

Your friendly neighborhood C4 team works tirelessly to bring the fans the best show possible. We’re 100% volunteer run (yes even our President is a volunteer) and everything we make goes back into making the event better and better. It’s been an amazing 20 years thus far and we’re excited to keep the adventure going!

Thank you for all your support, we look forward to seeing you at another C4 event soon!

Cheers,
Violet
