In advance of the Philadelphia Flyers 50th anniversary season, the club announced today that its annual Flyers Wives Carnival will take place on Sunday, November 6, 2016 at 1:30 p.m. at the Wells Fargo Center. This marks the 40th year of the fan-favorite Carnival, one of the longest-tenured and most successful charity events hosted by a professional sports franchise in the country.
Tickets to the Flyers Wives Carnival go on sale today by clicking HERE, by phone at 1-800-298-4200, or at the Wells Fargo Center Box Office.
The Carnival provides the unique opportunity for fans to meet and take pictures with their favorite Flyers players, collect autographs, play interactive games, and take part in family-friendly activities. Last year’s carousel will return to center ice and accompany fan favorites on the floor of the Wells Fargo Center, including the six-story-high Ferris wheel, carnival games and booths, tailgate games with players, and meet-and-greets with Flyers players and alumni.
This year, several player combination autograph/photograph booths will be available for purchase in advance, including Claude Giroux, Jakub Voracek, Shayne Gostisbehere, and Wayne Simmonds.
Early Admission tickets to the Carnival are $35 in advance and will allow fans to enter the building at 1:30 p.m. General Admission opens at 3 p.m. and is $20 for adults. Tickets for children 12 and under are $15. Children under 2 are free. Event parking is free.
Proceeds from the Flyers Wives Carnival allow Flyers Charities to assist many local beneficiaries such as the Big Brothers Big Sisters Southeastern Pennsylvania, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation, Fox Chase Cancer Center, Living Beyond Breast Cancer, Pennsylvania, Police Athletic League, and many others. Since its inception, Flyers Charities has contributed over $26 million to various charitable organizations in the Greater Philadelphia Region.
