Rogers Hometown Hockey presented by Hyundai and Desjardins is coming to Campbell River April 16 to 18
Campbell River is excited to announce that we are gearing up to celebrate our hockey spirit, and everyone’s invited to join the fun. The City of Campbell River and several community partners will host the Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour the weekend of April 16 to 18, in the parking lot at the Maritime Heritage Centre property.
Canada’s ultimate hockey festival is hitting the nation’s highways once again to celebrate passionate communities across the country and the cherished hockey memories, heroes, and legacies that connect us.
Returning in a reimagined format, the free, fan-favourite festival will feature a full weekend of hockey-themed activities, local vendors and live entertainment — all in compliance with provincial health regulations.
New this season, the Rogers Hometown Hockey broadcast, hosted by Sportsnet favourites Ron MacLean and Tara Slone, will take place Monday evening, live from the Maritime Heritage Centre. Local hockey fans will be able to take in the sights, sounds and spectacle of a national broadcast in their own backyard.
“Everyone is welcome to get involved by joining in on festival activities and events,” says Mayor Andy Adams. “This is a great opportunity to reconnect our community following a couple of difficult years, and celebrate our shared passion for hockey and sport in general.”
Stay tuned for more details about the festival and events leading up to it. Visit campbellriver.ca/crhometownhockey for details.
Campbell River’s local organizing committee involves Minor Hockey, the Chamber of Commerce, School District 72, Strathcona Regional District, Destination Campbell River and the City.
