Pre-Sale Ticket Order Information

Symmes Carnival 2018!!

It’s time to order your pre-sale tickets to the BIGGEST event at Symmes Elementary School!

Tickets are used as “money” on Carnival night (Feb. 23) to purchase food and games.

Most children use $20 worth in tickets.

Most games cost 1-4 tickets

Most entrée items cost 6-10 tickets, drinks 2 tickets, and snacks 1-4 tickets.


Pre-sale orders can now be made online with a credit card!! Tickets are sold in bundles at $5 increments, for example $5 for 12 tickets. This is a big savings as tickets will cost $5 for 10 tickets on Carnival night!

Go to the Symmes Carnival website:

Click the ‘Order Tickets’ Button under Live Event Details on the homepage.

Click ‘Register’ to create a BiddingForGood account and confirm payment details. **Note: This account also sets you up to bid on great items in our optional online auction.

Choose the number of tickets you wish to order. Be sure to fill in your child’s name and homeroom teacher in the comments section!

Click ‘Order Tickets’ at the bottom of the page to complete your purchase.

Orders will then be processed, and you will receive your order via your child’s backpack mail.


This year, we will use both parts of the ticket roll. This means: It doesn’t matter whether a ticket says “Ticket” or “Keep This Coupon”. Both types will be accepted to buy food and games on Carnival night!
