Congratulations – You’re Registered!

Thank You!

You are now registered for the 2022 Wife Carrying Contest in Burnaby, BC, which will take place at the Scandinavian Midsummer Festival at 3 pm on Sunday June 26.

Please arrive at least 30 min before the event to sign. Also allow for extra time for finding parking and any lineups at the gate.
There will be a list at the front gate of everyone that has pre-registered, so you will not have to pay the festival entry fee, just tell them your names and that you’re here to compete in the Wife Carrying Contest.

The course looks different every year and the final layout will not be decided until Sunday, when we confirm the layout of the festival grounds. You can expect turns, hurdles and a water hazard. The most important thing to remember is to have FUN!

And finally, there will be a meeting for all contestants at 2:30 in front of the Finland tent, by the Vancouver Finlandia Club Table, where we will go over the rules, answer any questions, and possibly hand out some door prizes (sponsor dependent).

Thanks again for registering – we’re looking forward to seeing you there!!
