Join us for a BYOB trolley ride through Chicago's seasonal attractions, lighting displays and holiday landmarks.
Head to Matilda (3101 N Sheffield) for check-in, where the lights display begins with Matilda's unique, upside down Christmas trees hanging from the ceiling. Here, we'll shoot the breeze while enjoying a chili bar (vegetarian chili available), and prep for our gawker ride through Chicagoland's yuletide lights.
Bring your own beverages for the vintage trolley ride! Cups will be provided on the trolley. As soon as we board a vintage trolley, we'll be whisked off toward Christkindlmarket, The Magnificent Mile, State Street and Macy's Holiday Windows, and the Christmas Tree at Millenium Park followed by a visit to Lincoln Park Zoo ZooLights. We'll have the chance to get off the trolley and explore the Christkindlmarket and ZooLights.
While on the trolley we'll listen to classic Christmas music, sing Mariah Carey and enjoy whatever beverages we brought!
After soaking in the urban winter wonderland, we'll head back to Matilda and rave about all the seasonal sparkles we just saw.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Please bring your ticket (either printed or electronic) and your ID with you to check-in.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
As long as the attendee has a ticket (either printed or electronic) it does not matter if the ticket name matches the name of the attendee.
Something has come up and I can’t make the event for the date I scheduled. Can I reschedule my ticket for a different date?
You cannot transfer your ticket to a different date. Once tickets are purchased all sales are final. You may give your tickets away (again the ticket name does not need to match the attendee name).
I would like to add on one more ticket for a friend, but it says the event is sold out. Can I add on just one more ticket?
Unfortunately, no. Once an event says sold out there are no more tickets available for that date. We are limited due to seating constraints on the trolley and cannot oversell the event.
Are we allowed to drink on the trolley?
Yes! The event is BYOB and you are allowed to drink on the trolley. We will have cups provided as you are not to drink out of glass on the trolley.
What if I'm running late?
