Tickets for the Shaker are still available however they are dangerously close to selling out. As of right now you can still grab tickets from a select number of local vendors for $50; Pemberton Bike Co (Pemberton, B.C), Evolution (Whistler, B.C), Stunt Wood (Squamish, B.C), Sitka Vancouver (Vancouver, B.C).
Once these tickets are gone there will be a limited number of tickets available for purchase at the Shaker event for $60.
Due to the popularity of the event it has outgrown its previous home at the Old Becker's Farm. Starting last year the Shaker made the move to the much bigger Mount Currie Rodeo Grounds in Mount Currie.
