The Golden Ticket program encourages visitors to patronize Golden businesses by offering a discount of up to 20% off purchases, or an opportunity to win a $500 cash prize.

Does my Golden Ticket expire?  It’s best to use your Golden Ticket during your visit, but you may return to Golden at any time and use it then for savings while shopping or dining.

What happens if I win cash?  If the winning ticket is $10, the business can allow you to put it towards your purchase or meal, or you may choose to redeem it at the Golden Visitors Center. If the winning ticket is $500, you will be instructed to take the ticket to the Golden Visitors Center. The volunteers will take your information and submit it to Visit Golden for payment.

 Does a $500 winning ticket look similar to other tickets?  Yes, all the Golden Tickets look the same.

What is the history of the Golden Ticket? The Golden Ticket program began in 2006 and has grown every year. The City of Golden's community marketing program began this promotion to showcase the variety of Golden businesses.
