The Ferris wheel is a main attraction at the Flyers Wives Carnival. This year, it will be joined by a carousel.

UPDATE Oct. 18: With one month to go until the Carnival, the Flyers have announced today that admission for kids age 12 and under is now free. Fans who purchase a full price admission ticket may now receive up to four free children’s tickets.

Also, Flyers mascot Gritty will be in attendance this year. He will take part in Carnival games with both fans and players.


Tickets to the 42nd annual Flyers Wives Carnival, which will take place Sunday, Nov. 18, at the Wells Fargo Center, are now officially on sale.

At the charity event, fans of all ages will have the opportunity to meet Flyers players, play games on-and-off the ice and ride on a six-story-tall Ferris wheel.

Fans can also look forward to stepping outside and enjoying a brand new outdoor obstacle zone as a part of their Carnival-day agenda.

Admission is $15 for children age 12 and younger, and $25 for adults. 

This year, the Flyers Wives Carnival will support childhood cancer and leukemia research.

Flyers Charities, the organizing foundation behind the Carnival, has raised more than $27 million over the past 40-plus years to support multiple nonprofit organizations, including the Center for Autism, Snider Hockey, PAWS, Ronald McDonald House of Philadelphia and Simon’s Heart.

Like last year, the Carnival will not take place in the evening. Instead, it will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
