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 Downtown Oakville 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.
