Due to the Holiday Concert’s overwhelming popularity, the Town will once again distribute a Holiday Concert ticket lottery.

To enter the lottery, residents need only pick up an application, or print out a copy from the Town’s website, www.oysterbaytown.com, fill it out and return it to the address on the application. Once received, the applicant’s name will be placed into the lottery, from which winners will be selected at random. Selected applicants will receive tickets to either their first, second, third or fourth choice of performance depending on availability. All postcards must be received no later than Friday, October 28, 2016 at 4:45 p.m.
