Council endorses Rogers Hometown Hockey event in downtown Oakville

Tuesday, May 30, 2017 – for immediate release

Council endorses Rogers Hometown Hockey event in downtown Oakville

Staff receives green light to proceed with plans for outdoor celebration in December 2017

Oakville hockey fans of all ages will have a chance to showcase their love of the game when the Rogers Hometown Hockey celebration comes to town this winter.

Town Council authorized staff to sign a letter of agreement with the Hometown Hockey event organizers that will see the outdoor festival visit Downtown Oakville during a weekend in December. The date will be confirmed once the NHL schedule is released in June.

Rogers Hometown Hockey is a two-day festival that celebrates Canada’s passion for hockey with a weekend of free outdoor activities. The festival will feature games, interactive experiences, and live entertainment for the whole family culminating with an outdoor viewing party of an NHL game broadcast live from the Sportsnet Mobile Studio with Ron MacLean and co-host Tara Slone.

“This event is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate hockey in Oakville, attract thousands of people downtown during the Christmas shopping season, and showcase our town to a national audience,” said Mayor Rob Burton.

Council also approved $96,000 in funding to cover costs associated with hosting the event such as marketing, parking, police, site security and a transit shuttle service.

Staff is working with the Hometown Hockey production team to confirm which area in downtown Oakville is most suitable for the event site. The event dates and location will be announced later this summer.

The Olympic spirit will shine bright in Oakville when Mayor Rob Burton and Members of Council host a special event celebrating local summer Olympic and Paralympic athletes on October 28 at Sixteen Mile Sports Complex.

The celebration gets underway at 6:30 p.m. with an autograph session. Confirmed guests include two-time Olympic bronze medalist Diana Matheson, four-time Olympic medalist Adam Van Koeverden, and Olympic Canoe-Kayak athlete KC Fraser.

“This free event is Oakville’s opportunity to show our athletes in person how proud we are of their Olympic journey,” said Mayor Rob Burton. “I hope everyone will join us to celebrate their accomplishments not just as athletes, but as role models for our community’s youth.”

The event will also include a pre-game ceremony in advance of the Oakville Blades hockey game. Sports fans are encouraged to make an evening of the celebration and stick around to cheer on the Oakville Blades as they take on the Toronto Patriots. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Oakville Blades Hockey Club and its great tradition of hockey in our community. Kids under 12 can enjoy the game for free.
