Once Upon a Time – Formal Gala

October 26, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - October 27, 2019 @ 1:00 am PDT


The Events and Promotions Committee of the Columbia College Student Association, in liaison with Student Life, is hosting this grand event on… Saturday, October 26, 2019, at Fraserview Banquet Hall (8240 Fraser St., Vancouver, BC, V5X 3X6). Doors will open at 6:30pm, and the event will commence at 7pm. You may leave whenever you’d like, but you are more than welcome to stay until the official closing time: 1am the following day.

Formal galas are classic events hosted by many post-secondary institutions in Canada, where students can take a break from their studies, glamour up in attire, eat proper good food, take loads of photos, and dance the night away! Many cultures around the world also celebrate similar events in their own unique way, but if you are looking for something slightly different from your regular everyday routine, this formal gala is the perfect event for you.

Food menu will have both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. Appetizers, side dishes, main dishes, and dessert will be available for all attendees.

There will be a contest where students will vote for Best Dressed Gala King, Best Dressed Gala Queen, Showstopper, and more!

If you are ready to have fun and make one long-lasting memory, tickets are available at only $30 until the day of the event. Come get yours at Student Services, anytime between 9am to 5pm, Monday-Saturday. Included in the fee is the venue, music by a professional DJ, and a full-course buffet!

  • If you want to invite a Non-Columbia College friend/partner to the event, you can do so! Non-CC tickets are $35.
  • If you are coming together as a duo (with your best friend), or as a couple (with your partner), there is a couple price$55 for two.
  • Want more discounts? Gather your crew to get a group discount – groups of 8 or more can get their tickets for $25 per person!

We hope to see many of you at the formal gala. The 2019 Formal Gala team is working hard day and night to deliver a fantastic evening.
