Please, Mr. Postman

While the rest of the world is singing fa-la-la-la-la, Snowdown fans are singing fa-la-la-la-follies. That’s right, Durango’s annual bawdry lampoon of all things sacred is only a few short months away. Which means it’s time to start scheming about how to get tickets.

To alleviate the all-nighter sidewalk squatting of years’ past, the Follies will once again be holding its mail-in lottery, this year on Sat., Dec. 7 (which means you need to get your entries in the mail no later than Dec. 2 to be safe.)

About 400 tickets will be available by mail. Folks can buy up to four per entry (12 per household). Although you can enter as many times as you’d like, your name can only be drawn once.

Tickets are $20 each and must be paid by check or money order (photo copies of checks, cash or credit cards will not be accepted.) Checks that are not chosen will be returned via a self-addressed envelope (no stamp necessary) that you supply. And this should probably go without saying, but the name on the form must be a live, adult human, 18 years of age or older.

Mail-in order forms may be found at snow downfollies.org and must be received at P.O. Box 2342, Durango, CO 81302 by 9 a.m. Sat., Dec. 7.

If you miss the boat, don’t fret. There will be more chances to score tickets, including box office sales Jan. 18 and “Marketplace” tickets starting Jan. 21 at Bank of the San Juans’ downtown location.

“A Rockin’ Snowdown 2020” will take place Wed., Jan. 29 – Sun., Feb. 2. For more details, visit: snowdownfollies.org.
